Due to a growing demand for eco-friendly hiking gear, several companies have started to produce environmentally friendly footwear. Timberland have just screened an advert for their ‘Earthkeepers Movement’ line of footwear and the UK brand Hi-Tec, alongside the National Trust, have released a pair of walking boots called ‘Altitude IV WPi Enviro’. Hi-Tec’s boots use recycled rubber and minimal amounts of dyes and chemicals in their production. US based Patagonia have also declared the production of an eco-boot called the P26 which will be available early 2011. Other companies with environmentally footwear are North Face and Nike.
