Bared Footwear Sustainability

More than great looking shoes.

We create mindfully-crafted shoes that are good for you and our planet. Designed with your comfort in mind, we'll never leave you in shoes you don't love. We're proud to be Australia’s first B Corp certified footwear label and stand by the highest social and environmental standards for people and the planet. With a team of passionate individuals all working towards making our brand equally profitable and sustainable, we have a great desire to preserve and restore the earth for generations to come. We take sustainability very seriously, it is incredibly important to us to source the most sustainable materials we can for our shoes such as natural rubbers, sugarcane footbeds and Gold Rated leather. From our efforts to reduce our global footprint to upcycling leather offcuts into Dog Collars & Leads, our journey has just begun. While our shoes aren't perfect, it's our goal to continue to improve until we have a 100% eco-certified shoe. Designed with a focus on restoring nature rather than repairing the damage, it is a long road ahead but we are dedicated to becoming a fully circular and zero-waste business. It is our mission to continue to evolve, question our processes and do better. We understand this will not happen overnight, but it’s our promise to be open, honest and transparent.

Bared Footwear Sustainability Actions


Plant-Based Footbed

Crafted from 72% bio-based FATES™ foam, derived from plant-based oils. It creates three to six times less Co2 emissions than our standard footbeds. You can pop it in your compost, too! On average, 50% of your footbed will biodegrade within 75 days, with no nasties entering your soil.


Shoe Recycling

In partnership with Melbourne-based company, Save Our Soles, we transform pre-loved shoes into rubber mats for gym and playground flooring. We transform pre-loved shoes into rubber mats! Drop off your old shoes (Bared or not!) at any one of our stores, alternatively, post them to our warehouse.


We Are Carbon Neutral

We're working hard to reduce the emissions we cause in the manufacture and distribution of the shoes you love. In 2020, we partnered with Greenfleet, committing $50,000 to plant thousands of native species and offset over 3,300 tonnes of carbon!
