Oat Shoes Become Trees When You Throw Them Out

Sometimes fashion and environmental consciousness are mutually exclusive. To some people, going green means sacrificing style, comfort, or affordability in the name of the environment. A new Dutch shoe company called OAT Shoes aims to dispel this sentiment. OAT offers stylish and affordable shoes that not only fully biodegrade but actually grow into trees as they break down. The shoes are lined with tree seeds, so instead of throwing them out, you can simply plant them and begin the cycle all over again. What do you think? Would this make environmentally conscious fashion appealing to you? Let us know your thoughts.
