Caring for our environment can be hard if you have not known simple little things about eco-friendly stuffs like recycling and the like. The Tire Tube Recycling Shoes by SEAL would definitely help you start living an eco-friendly life. As its name suggests, obviously, the shoes are made of used tire tube and I suppose both the inner and outer tube are being recycled. However, despite of the elegant look and the sustainable aim these fashionable shoes have, I see a little problem in it. I just wish that wearing these shoes would be a little less humid compared to those made of breathable cloth or canvas and the like. However, if these are really, what these are made of, I suggest wearing these shoes during winter or rainy season. On these seasons, your feet will be free from humid temperature these shoes bring and you definitely will feel warm and comfortable aside from being fashionable while keeping earth clean and safe.
