What I did here is attempt to provide a complete list of eco friendly hiking boots. I only included hiking boots that were made from recycled material. I provide a breakdown of what on the shoe comes from recycled material as well, so you can judge what the most environmentally friendly hiking boots or shoes are:
Scarpa Men’s Alpine Trail Running Shoe– This shoe features a suede made from recycled leather and recycled polyester mesh.
Merrell Mens Chameleon 4 Stretch Hiking Shoe– This shoe has a footbed made from 20% recycled EVA
Timberland Men’s Earthkeepers Pembrooke Low Hiking Shoe– This shoe has 100% recycled mesh lining
Pantagonia Drifter A/C Gore Tex Hiking Shoe– This shoe features both a 20% recycled anatomic footbed as well as 80% post consumer recycled water proof insole board
Adidas AX1 Leather Hiking Shoe– This shoe was manfuactured using 10% recycled rubber
Pantagonia Boaris Walking Shoe– This shoe features a midsole and insole made from recycled material
La Sportiva FCO GTX Hiking boot– This hiking shoe utilizes 30% recycled rubber on the outsole, as well as a 100% recycled Nylon Mesh lining and a 40% recycled Nylon Midsole. They deserve credit for being one of the most environmentally friendly hiking boots as well as giving specifics on their use of recycled materials.
Timberland Earthkeepers Rugged Boot– Created using 42% recycled rubber on the outsole and 100% reycled PET lining
