Pharrell and Timberland Turn Recycled Plastic Into Bee-Inspired Boots
The nature-friendly summer kicks have even been endorsed by the Queen Beyhive herself, Beyonce.
Just in time for summer, a buzzy new collaboration from Timberland and Pharrell Williams that’s also good news for nature’s tiniest friends. The boots, patterned to look like honeycombs and blades of grass, are produced with Bionic Canvas, a unique textile made from Bionic Yarn, a product co-created by Williams that utilizes organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles to produce a sustainable material. So far the boots have been a huge hit with trendsetters, including Beyoncé, who wore the shoes in her recent “Feeling Myself” music video with Nicki Minaj. Bee and Bey-friendly? We might just be feeling these kicks ourselves.
