Terra Plana Shoes

Terra Plana shoes were featured recently in London's Financial Times report on green fashion. Terra Plana's focus is to construct shoes with an efficient use of natural materials, while minimizing toxins and glues. Terra Plana uses a traditional Moccasin-style construction for many of their shoes. The shoe picture here is the "Stankonia" (inspired by Outkast?). It has uppers made of natural buffalo nubuck with canvas, and a natural latex sole. Terra Plana tans their leather using natural vegetable tannins (oak bark, wattle, chestnut, mimosa) the leather is then polished with an amber stone. Terra Plana also makes men's and women's dress shoes. :: Terra Plana [by Justin Thomas]
