Sustainability Story

Tread & Butter is all-in on sustainability. Everything we do is centered around making good decisions about our impact on the environment and our community. In addition to being a Climate Neutral Certified brand, we build our performance insoles from the ground up with sustainable natural cork. If you don't know, cork is tree bark. The bark is carefully harvested, a process that actually prolongs the lifespan of the tree. Cork is all-natural, biodegradable, and we use it in place of petroleum-based materials commonly used in the footwear industry. Tread & Butter cork insoles are designed in Bend, Oregon and handcrafted in Portugal.
