Gucci, known for their luxe (but not very PETA-friendly) leather goods, has taken a step in the eco-friendly direction with a line of biodegradable rubber flats. “Sustainable Soles” includes skittle-colored ballet flats and wedge jellies made biodegradable plastic. The rubber flats are perfect for those rainy days where you don’t want to pull on hot, sweaty rain boots.
Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini designed the line, which features interlocking G’s made of recycled polyester. Now, that’s a departure from the iconic leather logo.
