Editor’s Notes: Hugo Boss has the environment on its mind with this range of limited edition vegan footwear. The Piñatex kicks were developed by Spanish designer Carmen Hijosa using natural byproducts, namely leaf fibers to mold and form the upper.

The change marks a huge overhaul in production for the brand, which noted that the textile uppers require "no extra resources to grow and provide farming communities with an additional income.” The upper is colored with natural plant dyes and is matched with a TPU sole, making it 100 percent vegan.

Additional things to note are the organic cotton laces up top and a fully recyclable/biodegradable shoe box to place them in. For those looking to cop, the Italian-made shoes will be available in brown, black, blue, and yellow and can be purchased at Hugo Boss online and select brick and mortar locations.
