As part of their commitment to innovation, HUGO BOSS just announced they have produced a new BOSS Menswear shoe with Piñatex®, a natural based material made of pineapple leaf fibres.
The project is part of an ongoing commitment to search for more sustainable ways to design, source, produce and finish its products.
Here is what you should know about what makes these shoes so special. The upper of the shoe is made from Piñatex®, an innovative natural based material manufactured from pineapple leaf fibres by Ananas Anam.
Piñatex is a byproduct of existing agriculture, therefore, the leaves require no extra resources to grow. Furthermore, it provides farming communities with an additional income.
The brand uses natural plant-based dyes to colour the materials. The shoes have a recycled TPU sole and are 100% vegan. It is designed to make a minimal impact on our planet, while also representing the impeccable design credentials that BOSS Menswear is known for.
The overall design of the shoe reflects the sleek, casual approach that is typical of BOSS Menswear. It also fits in seamlessly with other pieces from the collection.
The shoes are presented in a fully recyclable and biodegradable paper box, made from 100% recovered fibre. Available in four colours.
