At Greenbees, for every tire that is rescued from the landfill, four shoes are produced. Keeping in line with their planet-saving credo, Garcia and Clancy use only full-grain leathers that are byproducts of the meat industry and considered waste material. Tanned without formaldehyde or heavy metals, the leather is then crafted into bohemian-inspired footwear in a family-owned factory in Leon, Mexico.

Fall/winter 2009 brings three new styles of boot: The Tencha, a fresh take on the classic equestrian silhouette; the Erma, with a sleeker, embellishment-free design; and the Emma, an ankle boot that exudes both flair and comfort.

For every Greenbees shoe sold, a tree is planted through Trees for the Future.

Rubber, meet road all over again.
