raags wrote:@parastexis well if your intention is to 'be a good vegan' then no, but if your intention is to 'consume ethically in ways that are sustainable in environmental and human costs' then yes. this isn't me trying to undermine people who don't want to consume animal products - i don't eat meat or fish, i don't buy leather, and try to avoid other animal products as well - but i don't really see the point if you are trading animal suffering for human suffering and think its an important thing to be aware of and not overlook in any framework where one is trying to consume ethically. i wasn't trying to be combative or condescending.


I don't want to turn this into another ethical consumerism thread since i'm pretty sure the last one didn't go too well. but sweatshops are a benefit (or at least a necessary step towards economic growth) to poor countries, and this is not a controversial position amongst economists (http://www.slate.com/articles/business/ ... labor.html). i'm sympathetic towards the workers too, but they are better off because of globalization.

in relation to animal rights, it is very much the cultural zeitgeist to decry sweatshops, while protesting socially acceptable animal exploitation is still met with anger, which is why they should be treated as separate issues.

on the fence design wise (though I'm sort of past caring about design except in the broadest terms to be honest) but they're vegan and have a resistant model apparently.

A lab grown leather jacket made from Alexander Mcqueen's DNA. I love everything about this.

"A lot of people are really grossed out by the whole procedure," she admits, "but in my opinion it's way less gross than other procedures at a leather farm because it doesn't include animal slaughter and is completely lab born and doesn't hurt any human beings. We are so grossed out by human leather, but then use animal leather in our every day life."

another "alternative to animal leather" project


making "leather" from mycelium
takes weeks to grow versus the years it takes to raise livestock, captures carbon dioxide, naturally antibiotic, potentially probiotic

The amount of sportswear brands putting out canvas / knitted models and then adding leather touches fucking sucks, like plz stop ruining these good shoes with dead animal please.

New canvas sfbs piss me off so much because of this.

Positive note, the new zx750s on the adidas website are vegan leather

What shoes do vegan cyberpunx wear??? Other than checkerboard vans slip ons????

These look alright if you're willing to wear black trousers with black slip ons (which I'm probably not willing to do)

These look alright. A bit like those acronym shoes but they got rid of the horrid zip and weird heel thing.

Now these ^ slipons are available in pineapple leather, but they still look terrible.

On the other hand, these trainers from Lunge look pretty cool.

Nike got some new shit

If you’re obsessed with sneakers, then you’ve probably heard the word “innovation” thrown at you more than a handful of times. It’s an arms race among the brands right now and determining the leader is really based on the practical outcomes of these new creations. Nike’s self-lacing shoes were certainly a marvel, but do people really need self-lacing shoes? adidas’ Futurecraft initiative has all the hype, but how difficult would it be to maintain a porous sole?

Thus far the most innovative sneaker-related development of the 21st Century, or perhaps all-time, has been Flyknit. Nike reconstituted recycled garbage using proprietary methods and transformed it into threads that were then re-engineered into shoe uppers. More than that, it ushered in the trend of low-profile, second-skin footwear that every brand today now dabbles in.

FlyLeather can have a similar impact because Nike would be greatly reducing its carbon imprint while creating a leather-like material that is 40% lighter and five times more durable, and the trend of retro footwear, which is almost entirely composed of leather materials, isn’t going anywhere. Because it’s lighter, FlyLeather could potentially be featured on basketball shoes again, a category that has moved on to more lightweight synthetic materials.

On the surface, FlyLeather doesn’t appear to be anything new. Our leather shoes will look and feel the same (but lighter and more durable). But with carbon waste continuing to be a global issue and the demand for leather footwear not subsiding any time soon, Nike took big strides to ensure that they’ll continue to offer the best product while maintaining sustainability as a top priority.

A quick review of the product: the shoes definitely feel just like leather, and the shoes are definitely lighter in comparison to an Air Force 1 of similar size. The soles are the same used in the classic Air Force 1. In short: Nike FlyLeather allows Nike to give us the same cherished product using more waste and less energy. Who’s on board?

The Nike FlyLeather collection will be seen during Climate Week NYC 2017.
