Description of vegan shoe boot or belt
A factory in Portugal can make tyre-sole boots. Maybe not 100% recycled tyre, bot something close. It can use hemp canvas for the uppers. Maybe not 100% neat, but environmentally friendly.
A magazine called Adbusters in Canada urges us to "kick corporate ass", or "arse" as we say in parts of the UK, and produced some batches of boots with spots on them to help us aim. Here in size 40, UK 6.5.
