We here at Sneaker Freaker like to support the little guys and when we heard about these rubber guns we knew we had to get them up on the site. The folks over at Simple realise you want to live green, but might not necessarily want to wear ugly shoes. Good news – now you can look after the planet, without looking like a hippie tree hugger. Introducing ecoSNEAKS, the latest in street-friendly footwear with an environmental conscience. Ever wondered what happened to old car tyres? You’re guess is probably, landfill, right? Simple have worked out how to make your waste last a little longer. Look closer and check out the tyre treads on the sole of your ecoSNEAKS for the original markings! Want to know more?
