“Sustainable Soles” are not your typical high end designer’s footwear. Gucci’s new line of ballet flats and sneakers are made from biodegradable plastic, designed by Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini [2]. While the flats are clad with Gucci’s trademark interlocking Gs, the logo is printed in green on recycled polyester [3] labels for the sneakers. Click ahead [4] to check out the awesome green footwear and what else Gucci has in store for the green consumer.
