V2 - Blackspot adds another shoe

Since we mentioned Blackspot last year, they have increased the range with an additional model. Not exactly a sneaker, more boot-cum-shoe. And to our aesthetic not overly attractive, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Still, they are made in Portugal, through a factory that supports union labour for workers who wish to join. With organic hemp uppers and vegetarian approved components, the V2 has another wrinkle to the story. Soles are made from reclaimed car tires. An initiative of Adbusters, who "hope this blackspot sneaker venture is the beginning of a new era in ethical, worker-friendly, environmentally friendly production in the shoe industry." ::Blackspot Sneaker
