Hi-Tec Eco-Friendly? Golf Shoes

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.

    I know this might not be the most appropriate place to post this but for other readers living in the USA are you concerned about the debt? It just seems like it is getting to the point where the country is going to go bankrupt and my husband and I are just a little concerned that our kids and grandkids are going to have some big problems in a few years. Thanks for letting me vent, Sara

    How is leather not eco-friendly. It is all organic because it came from a cow.
