U.S. fashion brand Madewell has launched a range of eco-friendly sneakers made from recycled and repurposed materials, including leather.

The Court sneaker is the second sustainable shoe product by Madewell, and is made with 40% recycled rubber, 10% rice husks, laces made under the Better Cotton Initiative and an upper made from repurposed leather sourced from imperfect, leftover leather.

According to Madewell, the brand is committed to sustainable leather, sourcing leather from a LWG Gold rated tannery.
