Ked’s Green Label Sneakers: $55

Willow Lace Up Green
Willow Lace Up White

Willow Lace Up Black

  • organic cotton!
  • 20% recycled rubber in the outsoles!
  • Colors made from non-toxic inks & dyes!
  • Nickel free eyelets, ISO-9001 certified factory
  • recycled insoles!
  • Shoe laces made from 100% recycled PET (water bottles)

The face of the collection, both online and in POS materials, is Emily Sugihara, an environmental activist and the founder of Baggu, a line of reusable bags. “We felt [Emily] was really important because not only is she a millennial but she has a great mix of fashion and style in how she dresses, and she’s woven that into her own business,” said Burrows. The collaboration with Sugihara goes beyond modeling. “She has been a part of educating not only us about how to be green but the consumer as well.”

The Green Label collection will expand in both number of styles and materials for fall, and Burrows said Keds expects to enhance and improve its sustainability standards as it grows. “We’re learning about being green along with the consumer,” she said. “We’re not going to be perfect the first time out of the gate.”
