First I have to apologize for my last post. I thought that those Supra Cuban 1.5‘s were creature-less, but I was outed by one of my loyal readers (thanks Hugues). I’ve been doing that a lot lately, just goes to show that I’m not being careful enough, or I just get too excited when I see something I like. Anyway, I am PRETTY SURE these Habitat Ibex in grey are not made with any animal parts. The top is synthetic leather (confirmed by multiple sources), the soles are made of a recycled gum rubber, and the glues are water-based. As for the looks, I’m feelin’ it. You got your nice mid-top silhouette, canvas tongue, and some accent stitching. Overall, it’s a nice take on the classic Vans Half-Cab, but animal friendly. Available at Premier and Skate Warehouse (it’s a few bucks cheaper at Premier). Enjoy!
