Why We Love Leather
Leather, nubuck and suede give footwear durability with comfort, breathability, and longevity. It’s a timeless aesthetic that ages well with use. With proper care, leather footwear can stay in your closet season after season.
It’s 100% Traceable
The leathers we use are a byproduct of the food system, and otherwise would have been waste. By ensuring our hides are 100% traceable, we can guarantee that the animals are raised responsibly and the suppliers are held to a high ethical standard.
It’s Leather Working Group™
We only work with leather suppliers that are certified by the Leather Working Group™, an organization aimed at improving the impact of the leather supply chain and bringing visibility to industry best practices.
We care deeply about the people that make our products possible. By banning hazardous materials, providing personal protective equipment, and paying fair wages, we’re actively improving the quality of life for our tannery workers.
Our cardboard shoe boxes are made with a minimum of 80% post-consumer recycled paper and are 100% recyclable. We never use solvent-based adhesives or petroleum-based inks in our packaging. Instead, we use water-based solvents and inks, which use fewer chemicals and create fewer emissions.
We actively seek out partnerships with innovative companies like APX® Devulcanized Rubber, an "upcycled" rubber compound manufacturer that uses an environmentally friendly, patented process.
Same Icon. Less Footprint.
An instantly recognizable style from Cat Footwear, the Colorado has been a staple in our lineup for over 150 years. The eColorado was created with a focus on eco-friendliness through construction and materials, without changing the outward appearance of the iconic classic.
Outsole contains partially recycled rubber.
Our leather products support responsible manufacturing via our partnership with the Leather Working Group.
Reduced water and energy usage during production of the leather.
