we reported on Canadian shoe company Native Shoes and their entirely biodegradable Plant Shoe. The attractive (and shockingly durable) design is concocted of completely biodegradable pineapple husk, olive oil, corn, and cotton that can begin to break down after only 45 days in a compost bin. But Native, like several other brands, hasn’t focused its sustainability efforts on a single shoe design. The brand is currently partnering with the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT to develop a unique method of 3D printing for the Jefferson Slip-On ($45) and the Audrey pointed toe flat (starting at $31). Other versions of the company’s shoes are produced with EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), plastic foam that can be ground up through the company’s Remix Project recycling program and repurposed as flooring or insulation in building construction. You can recycle your worn Native shoes through a variety of partner locations as well as the Zappos for Good free … [Read more...] about 10 shoe brands that reduce your carbon footprint

Smith has been a longtime favorite brand of skiers and boarders of all types. We attribute it to the proprietary tech that makes their lenses more than just oversize sunglasses with an elastic strap. The 4D Mag (which took 142 prototypes before it was perfected to Smith’s standards) is the brand’s techiest model to date. The 4D Mag incorporates a locking magnetic lens interchange system (aka Mag technology) that allows wearers to switch lenses by simply connecting the lens with a (very intuitive) magnet hold—so no more jiggering your lenses in and out of brackets or breaking hinges. But what really makes the 4D Mag special is its completely reinvented lens shape. This lens extends below your natural site line so you get a 25% increased field of view from other standard goggle design, allowing skiers to see the tops of their skis without dropping their chin—a major win for maintaining both self-awareness and terrain-awareness while riding.
