As a shipping bonus, each pair will be shipped in a GUTTA SOLES up-cycled shoe bag/rucksack made from recycled fishing net, up-cycled cocoa sacks, and recycled fabrics from Ghana.
ReKast shoes highlight the necessity to unite the global fashion industry as one sustainable movement. This collection will not only bring awareness to consumers, but also give the world a one-of-a-kind, exclusive sneaker with minimal impact the environment through its production.
