Hugo Boss debuts a cool new Boss Menswear shoe made with Piñatex, a sustainable material whose base is pineapple leaf fibre

The luxury fashion label has announced the invention of a new Boss Menswear shoe fabricated using Piñatex, a natural-based material made from pineapple leaf fibers.

Manufactured by Ananas Anam, Piñatex is harvested as a byproduct of existing agricultural practices and colored with natural plant-based dyes.

The new shoe, which is 100% vegan, also features a recycled TPU sole for extra green points. It is available in four different colorways, from navy to mustard, and comes packaged in a recyclable and biodegradable paper box, made from 100% recovered fiber.

Boss is not the only fashion brand taking the initiative when it comes to sustainable fashion; so far this year, outdoor label The North Face has launched a "Bottle Source" collection crafted from recycled bottles recovered from waste streams in US national parks, Stockholm-based label Gant has unveiled a "Beacons Project" line of shirts made using upcycled plastic salvaged from the Mediterranean and fast fashion retailer H&M has released a new activewear collection made solely from sustainable materials.
