Look good, feel good and do good in sustainable, eco-friendly footwear from Rackle. The ALEX is made with a 100% sustainable hemp upper and Eco-Pure®, a foam midsole/outsole unit that promotes bio-degradation. Designed for an everyday wear, with plush cushioning, they weigh in at a super lightweight 6 ounces. Featuring Rackle’s proprietary Plexus Arch™ technology, that stimulates the foot, providing recovery benefits and comfort as you move though the day. You’ll feel so good, you might forget you have them on.


The 100% sustainable hemp upper is made of high grade hemp and provides year-round comfort and support thanks to the plants natural benefits: cool in the summer and warm in the winter; anti-microbial; lightweight; water-resistant; UV-resistant; and extremely durable.


Our shoes soles are made of EcoPure® and incorporate Rackle’s proprietary PLEXUS ARCH™ design. EcoPure® foam promotes bio-degradation – it begins to break down after 1 year in active enclosed landfill conditions. The PLEXUS ARCH™ with its raised ribbed arch design stimulates the foot where veins in the arch area meet (plexus) during forward motion (e.g. walking, etc.). PLEXUS ARCH™ technology offers recovery and comfort for people on the go.


Amazingly comfortable, extremely lightweight, 100% sustainable - everything you need in your shoes, and nothing you don’t.

*Using the ASTM D5511 test method,(EVA outsoles/midsoles) containing EcoPure® were found to biodegrade 52% over 457 days of independent 3rd-party testing. The test conditions were >51% solids, which is representative of some, not all landfill conditions. Results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test.
