- 4 june 2012
Gucci has revealed its Fall collection of Sustainable Soles, a special edition collection for men and women that are made from eco-friendly material. The shoes were designed by Frida Giannini and includes a range of ballet flats and sneakers molded from bio-plastic. The biodegradable material is sourced from compost, and is both durable and flexible.
The Gucci Marola Green ballet flats feature the iconic GG logo stamped on the front of the foot. While the California Green sneakers come in low- and high-top versions, and combine bio-rubber soles with pebbled vegetable-tanned calfskin.
the Sustainable Soles collection is available to purchase online and at selected Gucci stores worldwide.
