Indian footwear retailer Metro Shoes has launched a new eco-friendly collection titled ‘Nature Pro’ for men. The range offers footwear made using Merino wool tagging the collection — ‘The Pair That Cares’ as well as from recycled PET plastic bottles.
For decades, the brand has been associated with creating stylish, functional, and durable shoes. The new extensive sustainable collection is 100% natural and eco-friendly and aims to reduce the carbon footprint on the earth by developing an innovative range of shoes that have zero impact, can be recycled, use locally sourced material, and decompose naturally, without harming the environment.
Range made from Merino Wool —The Pair That Cares
World over, Merino wool is known to be the finest wool sourced from Merino sheep using sustainable farming practices. Every year, these sheep produce a new fleece, making their wool a completely renewable fiber. Metro Shoes uses high-quality merino wool sourced mostly from Australia and New Zealand. These shoes are cruelty-free, lightweight, and can be comfortably worn without socks as they keep the feet warm in winter and cool in summer.
The natural fiber allows breathability, helps keep feet dry and sweat-free, and is odor-free.
Nature Pro’s Merino collection is priced from Rs.3,290 onwards and is available in a range of colors including black, tan, brown, cherry red, and indigo. The brand has roped in ace youth icons Harshvardhan Kapoor and Varun Sood to shoot slick video clips detailing the collection’s unique features.
Eco-friendly PET bottle range
Metro Shoes’ eco-friendly PET bottle range is made from plastic sourced from, beaches, oceans, and garbage that is further processed and transformed into fabrics that are used in the shoes. The Nature Pro collection address this problem as it recycles 1000s of PET bottles to create the first collection of loafer-style slip-on shoes for men.
These soft, comfortable, and durable shoes are priced at Rs.2,690 onwards for a pair and are available in colors like grey, blue, green, and black. This washable and sustainable collection does not generate heat and always keeps the feet comfortable and cool.
