Kane Footwear releases ocean-inspired Revive to celebrate Earth Day

April 21, 2022

The Tropic/Dark Earth colorway marks newest addition to Kane’s Earth Day limited-edition collection

Westport, CT (April 21, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Kane Footwear, the footwear brand promoting health for your body and the planet, released a limited edition Tropic/Dark Earth Speckle colorway to celebrate ocean health and their commitment to sustainable practices.

The lifecycle of Kane’s flagship Revive slip-on – from harvesting the raw materials for their sugarcane-based shoes to shipping in FSC-certified packaging – is carefully planned to ensure the most Earth-friendly manufacturing process. Kane’s manufacturer in Brazil was selected for their eco-conscious hydroelectric energy source and careful attention to water usage. Kane ensures that their injection-molding process produces zero waste, with every scrap being ground up and used in future shoes. In this way, Kane celebrates Earth Day well beyond April 22.

“In addition to creating a sustainable product with the Revive’s renewable, sugarcane-based BounceBack foam, we wanted to ensure our full supply chain was in line with our values,” John Gagliardi, founder of Kane Footwear, said. “From choosing the best manufacturing partner to using our boxes as the shippers, we’re working to do the best we can for our planet.”

Kane has been conscious of their carbon footprint from the outset, from their manufacturing process to the materials they use. Their sugarcane-based BounceBack foam, made from sugarcane ethanol, holds carbon sequestered during the sugarcane’s growth process, making it a carbon negative material.

In an effort to continue expanding their best practices, Kane partners with 1% For the Planet to contribute to climate solutions and Sole for Souls to ensure no products go to waste, and all are put to the best use possible. They are also in the process of becoming a Certified B-Corp.
