Tropicfeel, a manufacturer of sustainably-made travel gear, announced the launch of its first eco-friendly, weatherproof Geyser shoe made with Hyosung’s 100 percent recycled fibers.
Available in low and high cut styles, the shoe features a sock construction with sprint laces, is made with Hdry technology (feel dry) stretchy recycled waterproof membrane, a low impact 20 percent Merino wool lining, a blend of Hyosung’s Mipan regen recycled nylon and creora regen recycled elastane upper, protected with a water-resistant finish and an anti-fatigue, anti-slip rubber outsole.
“We wanted to link our first weatherproof footwear to two concepts to continue the legacy of water-friendly styles and to connect more with nature by removing our footprint and placing more importance on the environment,” said Alberto Espinós, Tropicfeel CEO & founder. “Hyosung has helped us achieve this with its sustainable textile solutions.”
Earlier this fall, Tropicfeel introduced Nest, an all-rounder backpack. Nest expands from 16L to 30L and is made with a blend of Hyosung’s Mipan regen nylon, Mipan regen robic high-tenacity nylon and creora regen elastane made with GRS-certified 100 percent reclaimed waste, in addition to its regen polyester made from 100 percent post-consumer waste.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Tropicfeel and its innovative travel gear,” said Mike Simko, global marketing director, Hyosung Textiles. “We are proud to join forces with such an innovative, young company that has developed a tremendous interactive and adventurous global community.”
