Hey everyone, hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Sorry for the absence, just been busy with a lot of stuff. Hope you all understand. We return today with another Habitat sneaker. Either they’re making a concerted effort to put out vegan shoes or we just haven’t noticed until recently. This one is the Surrey Natural Selection, a nice hybrid with some boat shoe characteristics. The Olive colorway is made out of hemp, nothing special. But interestingly, the Raven colorway has a bottom half of the upper made out of Cordura, the tough synthetic fabric usually found on things like luggage. Thinking about it now, it’s crazy that skateboard shoe companies haven’t used this material before… and for that matter, why aren’t they experimenting with more durable materials like this? We here at VK approve, and applaud Habitat for giving us options, and not limiting us to flimsy canvas shoes to skate in.
