UK-based shoe manufacturer Hi-Tec has revealed a shoe that, it claims, is made from 99 per cent environmentally sustainable materials.

The Enviro golf shoe includes outsoles made of rice husks and latex rubber and a sockliner made from 100 per cent recycled materials, while the outer shoe is made of organic vegetable-tanned leather.
