In 2015, the startup Austin Footwear Labs launched their brand at Earth Day Texas. The Texas-based company produces stylish shoes made out of 50% recycled tire rubber, which creates great footwear and also keeps tires out of landfills. Their mission is to “deliver high quality products using innovative technology and materials science to offer both sustainable and cutting-edge design elements.”
