Go green on the green... we think. Hi-Tec are being touted as the first "Green Golf Shoe" and they look great, however, the "we think" is because we are not sure what is exactly is eco-friendly about them other than Hhi-Tec say they are. According to Hi-Tec's website here are their eco-accolades:
- Organic Full Grain Leather Upper
- Soft Eco-friendly lining
- Recycled CMEVA sock lining (CMEVA stands for Compression Molded Ethylene Vinyl Acetate)
- Recycled Strobel Board
- Recycled CMEVA Overlasted Midsole
- Eco Friendly Triple R Outsole
While I am relieved that the strobel board is recycled and the triple R outsole is eco-friendly I'm not sure what that means. Unfortunately Hi-Tec doesn't go into much detail on their website. Once we get more information on their eco-credentials I'll update you, in the meantime, I can say I love the idea.
