Unstitched Utilities : Cool kicks

Unstitched Utilities was set up by Jack Steinweis, Kevin Crowley, and Mark Kane. Using recycled Tyvek (flashspun high-density polyethylene fibres) the upper material is water repellant, porous and hard to tear which makes it perfect for sport shoes. Available in a crinkled look the shoes are tan, white and gray. The “Unpressed” collection includes high top basketball shoes called “Next Day Mid” and low top (converse) basketball shoes called “Next Day Low”. The company also produce Magma shoes styled along the lines of old hockey boots. Unstitched Utilities will donate a percentage of the profits from the Unpressed collection to help environmental causes worldwide making its line of casual shoes some of the most environmentally friendly shoes you can buy.
