These Goodyear-Welted Combat Boots Are Made From 100% Sustainable Materials

It seems like every single day we’re being bombarded by style brands promising that their products are “eco-friendly” and “sustainable.” However, the gear is all too often crafted from inherently unsustainable materials (like leather) or, frankly speaking, they don’t look very good. STAATSBALLETT’s Avery Ginsberg seems to have captured the ideal blend of style and sustainability, however, with his new Ground Cover brand and their flagship release, a pair of handsome combat boots.

Stylistically speaking, these 8-eye combat boots are not dissimilar in their silhouette to timeless big-name offerings, like those made by Doc Martens. However, this release boasts some vastly different building materials. In fact, they’re 100% sustainable, utilizing agricultural waste from pineapple farming to craft the exterior, a removable cork insole, a microfiber liner, and it even has a repairable Goodyear welt construction. For those keeping score, that makes the Ground Cover boots 100% free of animal products, as well. Set for an April 29th release, these combat boots are priced at $480 a pair.
