Trends come and go, but certain items just stand the test of time. The desert boot, like the blue jean or the white Oxford or a great denim jacket, is among that hallowed group, yet it’s great to see brands offer up their own takes on the tried-and-true silhouette.
Astorflex just might be doing it in the most eco-friendly way possible, however. Its Greenflex Boot features premium Italian construction and European leather that’s processed for 30 days in a unique water, oak bark and powdered mimosa mixture. The material is then softened further with animal fats and aniline dyes for exceptional softness and a resulting environmental impact that’s remarkably sustainable — and admirable. Did we mention the Stone color looks great under white jeans, lightwash denim or even navy chinos — each and every day of the week? Feel good about these shoes, and look great wearing them. – $145
