Plastic Free Moccasins
June 15, 2012 - 4:21 pm

I’m looking into getting some plastic-free moccasins since all other shoes seem to have plastic soles. However, even the moccasins that I’m looking at seem to have soles. The pair from the link below calls them “lightweight flexible rubber soles.” Does anyone know if these rubber soles are synthetically made (I’m guessing they are)? If they are synthetically made, does anyone know where to purchase a completely plastic-free pair of moccasins? Thanks!

I found these online, which say they are made “from genuine full grain buffalo hide, bullhide or cowhide with or without deerskin lining. We do not use rubber, plastic or other synthetic soles, padding or other inserts that help disconnect you from the earth.”
They would be okay for people who are not vegan and don’t have a problem wearing animal leather.
