Earth mindfully crafts shoes that are good for you and good for the planet. They're always researching, improving & evolving – never standing still. Earth was one of the first footwear companies to use only water-based adhesives in every single shoe they make –– and have been doing so for over 15 years. They use Leather Working Group (also known as LWG) gold rated leathers. Their Gold Rating is based on energy use, water waste, traceability and gas emissions.
