Clae announces first-ever cactus leather sneaker

LA sneaker brand Clae has announced the launch of its first-ever cactus
leather sneaker in collaboration with Desserto, the 2020 Green Product
Award winner.

The ‘Bradley’ sneaker is 100 percent organic vegan cactus leather which
is approved by the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The packaging is also
created from recycled cardboard.

The laces are made of recycled nylon from plastic waste, the heel
detailing of the shoe is created from non-toxic and synthetic neoprene and
the 100 percent natural sole is made from the latex sap of the Hevea
tree.

The sneakers are available in black, green and white and can be
pre-ordered on Clae’s website for 119 euros or the retail price will be 139
euros.

To give the cactus plant time to regenerate, harvesting takes place
every six to eight months at an organic cactus plantation in Mexico – the
mature leaves are cut and then dried in the sun. The sneakers are produced
in Mexico, in the state of Zacatecas.
