The new close-toed shoe designs tout the innovative use of natural and sustainable materials including: organic cotton, metal-free leather, water-based glue, recycled Croslite™, recycled wool, recycled car tire and hemp.

“We’ve taken the concept of living ‘an ocean lifestyle’ year-round and have created comfortable shoes with the highest quality materials,” said Andy Palmer, general manager, Ocean Minded™. “With this new line we’re now able to offer consumers a year round footwear solution that fits their lifestyle and budget,” he said.

Finding the perfect spot can take a bit of work, so take a trek with the sublime styling of the Dune Rider from Ocean Minded™ and find a bit of surfing enlightenment. The Dune Rider uses recycled Croslite™ materials in the anatomical footbed to make these shoes comfortable, lightweight, and odor resistant. Enjoy the comfortably cool feeling of the natural wool lining on the inside and a combination upper of full-grain leather, nubuck leather, and metal-free suede for the outer shoe construction.
