2022: A Year In Review

12/16/2022

We’ve been busy.

For us, 2022 was all about growing. We’ve worked hard to improve our practices and have introduced new materials that are kinder to our earth.

Truth is, whatever we make will impact our planet. We want our shoes to be durable but we need them to eventually break down. We have learnt it’s not just about repurposing plastics or offsetting carbon emissions but sourcing bio-based products and reducing our footprint.

A journey that’s far from over, we’ve wrapped up our highlights.


We became Australia’s first B Corp-certified footwear label

And we couldn’t be prouder. We joined a community of like-minded businesses that are dedicated to operating under the highest social and environmental standards. While it didn’t change our practices, it did give us a network to continue to drive our improvements in sustainable initiatives and ethical practices.

B.plantfoam Bared Footwear Footbed

Introduced B.plantfoam

The same support you know and love, but kinder to the planet. Our new B.plantfoam™ footbed is made from 72% plant-based materials (USDA Certified Biobased). With a carbon footprint of 3.85kg CO2e, it reduces CO2 emissions by 70% when compared to traditional petroleum-based footbeds.

Launched our first vegan sneaker

A women’s sneaker with a knit upper crafted from recycled plastic, the 'Jinzo' features a 40% sugarcane outsole, a slip-resistant sole crafted from a blend of natural rubber and is fitted with recycled cotton laces. It’s bloody comfy, too.

$45,000 donated to Greenfleet

Greenfleet is a leading environmental organisation that’s on a mission to protect our climate by planting biodiverse forests across Australia and New Zealand. This year, we offset 2,500 tonnes of carbon emissions, totalling 5,380 tonnes since 2020.

We understand carbon offsetting is only part of the solution, we’re committed to minimising our impact at every level.

Since 2020, we’ve donated $95,000.

$23,610 donated to Children’s Ground

We teamed up with contemporary Indigenous artist, Brad Turner, to create ‘Hornbill 2 Brad Turner’ sneaker. A low-profile style that showcased the artist’s commissioned artwork - a pastel-coloured piece that was silent auctioned. We matched the final price and donated all proceeds to Children’s Ground.

Since 2019, we have donated $74,260.

Bared Footwear Donates NSW & QLD Flood Victims

Donated $10,000 to NSW & QLD flood victims

Our hearts went out to those affected by the NSW and QLD floods. The damage left families with nothing, destroying their homes and leaving them with only the clothes on their backs.

We donated to Red Cross Australia to support the incredible work they did on the ground.

Introduced Flufftails

Comfy just got cosier. Crafted from 100% faux fur made from GRS-certified 100% recycled polyester, the 'Flufftail' slippers are kinder to our planet and your feet, too.

Bared Footwear Terracycle

Launched a recycling program

We partnered with TerraCycle, a global waste management company that collects and repurposes traditionally non-recyclable waste. Our Melbourne team have access to the recycling program to help keep waste out of landfills.


Opened Armadale Men’s Store

It was about time our men’s Armadale space got an upgrade. Featuring dark timber panelling, exposed brick and mature greenery, we were joined by Aussie legend, Nazeem Hussain for a few laughs and indulged in Four Pillars negronis on the rocks.

FDRA Recycling Bared Footwear

We joined Shoe Factory Waste Program (FDRA)

An ongoing course for our factory in China that focuses on reducing our environmental impact by eliminating waste in the production and manufacturing phases. By empowering our factories to identify, sort and recycle waste to keep it out of landfills, the program provides our suppliers with a key tool to increase environmental sustainability at the factory level.


Fashion Declares Bared Footwear

We stand with Fashion Declares

We have joined a network of individuals to take action on the climate, ecological and social crises we face. We declare;

“The Fashion industry needs an upgrade. It’s time to put an end to the exploitation of people and the planet and work towards a fully circular and zero-waste industry. The Fashion Declares movement plays a crucial role in leading the way, we must unite and implement measurable action to stand a chance. The power is in our hands to make an impact."

That's a wrap!

Thank you to everyone that supported us, shopped with us and walked with us. We love doing what we do and couldn’t do it without you.

Wishing you a happy holiday season, can’t wait to see you in the New Year!
