Honoured to have been one of the first people in the world to try SKYE Footwear’s Rbutus sneakers. I’ll be the first person to admit my sneaker closet is overflowing and I probably don’t NEED another pair of sneakers but who am I to pass up on completely environmentally friendly footwear? Anyone who has grown up on the West Coast is cautious of their eco footprint and if my mother has taught me anything it’s how to be green (and how to make a mean gin & tonic). A huge topic in fashion school was sustainability in the fashion industry so I was thrilled when SKYE Footwear reached out about trying out their sneakers.
