However what if I informed you there was an alternative choice? Your used dildo could possibly be used to create an eco-friendly shoe. And never solely that, however an eco-friendly shoe that additionally resembles a Croc? Properly mates, it is formally a actuality. Permit me to introduce you to the brand new Plastic Soul.
This week, the LA-based model Rose in Good Religion launched this versatile, slip-on sneaker made completely of upcycled intercourse toys. The sneaker, Plastic Soul ($130), was made in partnership with family-owned sex-toy firm Doc Johnson, who sourced toy samples and faulty dildos as start-up materials for the shoe.

We had been ready for the suitable time and proper collaboration that made sense. After he noticed our facility, David reached out, pitching the thought of a shoe made out of our supplies, which finally advanced into this upcycled idea,” Braverman informed Gear Patrol.
In keeping with the product description, the shoe accommodates a customized mix of sustainable supplies: TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) and EVA foam. It additionally encompasses a built-in arch and recycled-cork insole, which offer “each day consolation.”
“Doc Johnson supplied the fabric, after which it took about two years of Rose and Doc working collectively to develop the method and determine the way to grind up and mix the faulty dildos with EVA [foam] to create the ultimate materials. The insole is all-natural cork, and that is materials Rose labored with a provider to supply.”
