Stella McCartney and Hunter create Sustainable & Vegan Wellington Boots
Stella McCartney and Hunter have teamed up and created a new vegan wellington boot, with sustainable resourcefulness, combined with naturally-sourced rubber and cutting edge material called Yulex™. We first saw a glimpse of the sustainable footwear during the Winter 2019 runway show in Paris.
The Yulex™ material used instead of traditional synthetic rubber, helps generate 80 percent less climate harming carbon dioxide, the natural rubber used to make the new boot was sourced from certified forests in Guatemala. One challange that they were faced with was creating the sole and tread with the same performance and durability as the normal wellington boot, which they did. The collection offers three color options, army green, black, and grey.
