Sustainable Manufacturing

Some or all of the energy used to make this product is produced via renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydropower.

Vegan

This product does not contain any animal products or byproducts, and has not been tested on animals.

Hemp

This high-yield crop grows quickly and usually doesn’t rely on harsh pesticides and fertilizers, making it a dependable renewable resource. The cannabis plant produces more fiber per acre than common textile crops like cotton and flax, and actually adds nutrients to the soil instead of depleting them! Hemp is strong, breathable, and moisture wicking, and it requires minimal dye during fabric production due to its high absorbency qualities.

Recycled Content

Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). This product is made from recycled content.

About the Company

Rackle Shoes

When you purchase a pair of shoes, you might think about how long they’ll last YOU, but what about how long they’ll last on the planet?

Enter Rackle Shoes. Created as a solution to this alarming statistic, this classic shoe features sustainable, breathable hemp and eco-pure foam soles that are designed to biodegrade 30-50x more quickly than generic shoe soles. Even the shoelaces boast a blend of hemp and recycled polyester! Rackle Shoes will float you from street to office to nature walk, all with a lighter footprint on our planet!
