No matter where your outdoor adventures take you, Patagonia footwear always fits.
For more than 35 years, the name Patagonia has been synonymous with outdoor adventure. From its humble beginnings in California forging tools for alpine climbers, Patagonia has grown over the years to offer a full range of outdoor apparel, technical gear, and footwear for winter sports enthusiasts, surfers, paddlers, trail runners, and fly fishers. Seeing a need for comfortable, high-quality footwear with a lighter environmental impact, Patagonia took the lessons learned from years of making outdoor clothing and applied them to their Performance and Casual footwear.
When you walk a mile in Patagonia footwear, you're not just doing a good thing for your body; you're doing a good thing for the planet.
Patagonia Footwear Environmental Mission Statement
Patagonia's philosophy has always been based on the mission statement, "Make the best products, do no unnecessary harm." This principle is visibly apparent in the Patagonia line of footwear. In order to minimize their impact on the environment, Patagonia employs clean manufacturing processes. A large percentage of the materials that make up each Patagonia shoe (including rubber, polyester, and EVA materials) are recycled. Dual-density compression-molded EVA footbed/midsole provides cushioning and comfort with support in the right places; removable for cleaning or custom footbeds. Water-based solvents and stitched outsoles reduce the need for harsh glue products and chemical adhesives while adding durability. Some Patagonia footwear styles utilize Hevea natural latex, which is extracted using a process that benefits the tree because it allows space for new milk production and results in a sustainable material. Curing Hevea milk creates a microstructure with thousands of tiny air bubbles, a completely natural, springy cushion. Patagonia requires that the tanneries they work with are fully compliant with current environmental business practices and standards like treating their water to U.S. standards and using steam and solar power to displace fuel consumption. They also offer a line of vegan-friendly shoes that are made without the use of any animal by-products. Superior comfort and environmentally sound manufacturing practices make this a shoe you can truly feel good about wearing.
