Last week, we touched upon the PAS DA Collection, a special eco-minded initiative from Etnies founder Piere Andre Senizergues (PAS) to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of the brand. This white/grey colorway of the Senix MV represents the most ecologically friendly of the 6-shoe collection. Composed almost entirely of recycled materials, the upper is constructed of hemp-based canvas with a bamboo lining and sockliner. To top it off, the print is water-based, the outsole is made from recycled rubber and padding derived from old carpet-foam. The only place with availability is Southern California’s Blends.
