Rooted in explorations of sustainable production and the elimination of
waste, Patagonia’s DIY shoe addresses powerful contemporary needs and
trends: the do-it-yourself craft, the customization movement, and the
desire to leave a minimal footprint on the Earth. Our DIY shoe is

made from leather scraps left on the floor of manufacturing facilities.
Distinctive and easy-to-assemble (about one hour per shoe) and
requiring no glue or tools, DIY shoes provide both maximum comfort and
ample opportunity for personal expression.
