You know what they say: you can't judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. But when it comes to eco-chic shoe brand Alterre, you'll probably be able to take note of the company's whimsy and innovation right away -- and you might soon be inspired by their commitment to sustainability.

The U.S. apparel market may be expected to grow to a $385 billion valuation by 2025, but designers know they need to do more than create beautiful products for their brands to succeed. The modern consumer is more focused on environmental responsibility than ever before, as is evidenced by the fact that electric vehicles will make up 54% of new car sales worldwide by 2040. Brands now need to address green practices in some way in order to stand out. Many have managed to make sustainability truly fashionable.

As of 2017, there are more than 17,300 warehouses across the United States. Most filled with consumer products that put little stock into the impact their production and distribution processes have on the rest of the world. In the case of Alterre, things are different. It's more than using responsibly sourced materials in their products. The brand does make a significant effort to utilize eco-friendly materials, like recycled plastics and leathers. Although this limits the type of shoes they can make (as "virgin" plastic is required for stiletto heels, for example), the company's founders -- Shilpa Iyengar and Harmony Pilobello -- are confident that their aesthetic and sustainable decisions are aligned. But Iyengar and Pilobello haven't stopped there. They're also making an effort to reduce unnecessary waste by ensuring that their products are as versatile as possible. In fact, their shoes are customizable, meaning the wearer can switch out the base and the upper of a given shoe to create endless style possibilities.

Basically, they're modular shoes. The consumer can buy a base (which come in sandal and platform styles) and several "uppers," which all work interchangeably. This allows the wearer to get much more out of her shoes and be a bit more creative. Plus, it can eliminate the need to buy (and eventually get rid of) several similar pairs or shoes -- and could potentially make packing for a trip a total breeze. Plus, these shoes are seriously cute and contemporary.

It's taken consumers a while to catch on, as some have shied away from the unfamiliar or expressed concerns about the comfort of these styles. And while the platforms might not be ideal for the 30% of Americans who walk for exercise, they're perfect for a strut down a busy street or a morning stroll with another stylish friend. It doesn't hurt that the brand was founded by two women and donates 5% of its profits to Restore NYC, which helps sex trafficking victims. All in all, Alterre is an intriguing shoe brand that's doing some excellent work to promote greater eco-consciousness -- all without sacrificing the desire to look fashion-forward.
Today we're sharing a collaboration that's as American as Tennessee whiskey. Dominic “The Shoe Surgeon” Chambrone has joined forces with iconic whiskey brand, Jack Daniel’s to release their newest Jack-inspired sneaker, the Jack Daniel's X The Shoe Surgeon Sneakers.

Seven shoe concepts were put up for a fan vote online that included a mix of various styles of basketball sneakers inspired by the craftsmanship and elements that make Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey the iconic global brand it is, including: grain, Jack Daniel’s cave spring, the distillery, charcoal, the barrel, honey and the Jack Daniel’s iconic bottle.

The winning design, an exclusive pair of Jordan IV’s, is inspired by his visit to the Jack Daniel’s distillery and showcases the heart of Jack Daniel Distillery, the Cave Spring Hollow. The Jack Daniel's Cave Spring Hollow is the lifeblood of Jack Daniel's whiskey. A crisp, cool natural resource that remains at a constant 56-degrees. The cave’s layers of limestone naturally adds a variety of minerals and removes iron from the water. You can clearly see this highlighted in the sneaker's color scheme.

“Hearing the peaceful sound of the clear water flow inside the cave gave me instant inspiration”, said Chambrone. “We wanted to really capture those elements with the shoe by giving them a limestone slate which complements the water-like see through sole.”

Friends of Jack Daniel's and sneakerheads can follow The Shoe Surgeon’s social media channels for updates on giveaways on this latest drop.

Sadly, we're in a time when many of our veterans are really struggling. Many vets have a difficult time finding jobs, healthcare, and homes. Thankfully there are companies who are finding ways to combat some of these issues. Two of these outstanding brands are Wolverine, a global marketer of branded footwear, and Sword &  Plough, a veteran-owned, social impact fashion brand that donates 10% of profits to veteran organizations. These two trusted brands have come together to collaborate on the Limited-Edition Wolverine 1000 Mile  x Sword  &  Plough Boot, just in time for Veteran's Day.

The Limited-Edition Wolverine 1000 Mile  X Sword  &  Plough Boot is handcrafted in the US, and pays homage to traditional military boot styles and those who have served in them.  It is based on the original Wolverine 1000 Mile boot silhouette from 1914, with a significant touch from Sword  &  Plough.

The limited-edition boot features Horween Natural Marine flesh-out coyote leather, the same leather used in Marine boots in World War II. This natural leather was designed to be used flesh side out because the material was soft enough for the boots to be worn without socks; a significant advantage for Marines in desert areas. It allowed them to easily empty the sand out of their boots, reducing blisters and increasing comfort. In a even bigger nod to military vets, repurposed military tent fabric from Sword & Plough  is incorporated into the boot's shaft; a sustainable aspect which honors those who served.

The Wolverine 1000 Mile x Sword & Plough Boot uses Goodyear Welt construction, invented nearly 150 years ago. It is considered one of the finest methods of shoe making due to its durability, flexibility and resole-able properties. The boot also boasts Vibram Pittsburgh outsole, speed hooks, and full coyote laces to complete the look of a military-inspired boot with contemporary styling.  

Cool materials and looks aside, there's much more to this boot than just looking good; it does a great deal of good as well. From November  5th - 12th, Wolverine will donate 100% of  proceeds of the sale of this limited-edition boot to Operation Finally Home, a non-profit organization that builds mortgage-free homes for veterans .

The Wolverine 1000 Mile X Sword & Plough Boot, which retails for $385.00, will be available exclusively on www.wolverine.com, starting November 5th. So gentlemen, when Monday, November 11th comes around, why not really honor those who have served by rocking the boots that helps veterans get a home. Mark your calendars to order yours on November 5th!
