Greats Royale Knit
Greats’ Royale Knit is for the eco-conscious male—this is novel footwear created from recycled ocean and single-use plastics. One neat fact of this sneaker is every pair from the line is equal to 7 recyclable plastic bottles. Thus, buying a pair of Royale Knits is an environment-friendly, ethical act.
Conceived in Brooklyn but crafted in Italy, the pair has a minimalist look that is reminiscent of the brand’s OG Royale sneaker. The addition of the Enviroknit yarn upper is what makes it different from the original, which makes use of full-grain leather.
The footwear is the low-top kind and features navy and white colorway—the knit upper is navy-colored and accented by white detailing on the sneakers’ heels. The side of the shoe has the brand’s standard knitted four-sided patch while the rubber sole’s back is decorated with the brand’s logo typeface.
This is one super-breathable pair thanks to the presence of the Enviroknit yarn. This makes for footwear that is perfect for the summer. The flexible knit upper won’t require any break-in period as well; you can wear this shoe straight out of the box. The knit upper is quite hardwearing for a knitted fabric too; regardless of any activity you do, this pair will stay strong.
For added comfort, the sneakers come with removable shoe inserts/insoles. The shoes slip on easily too, there’s no tugging needed.
The Greats Royale Knit is a pair that wins. This is sustainable footwear with tons of style, comfort, and a conscience. Not only recommended for stylish eco-warriors but those after a comfortable yet durable pair that can withstand lots of use. It’s the ideal footwear for casual and laidback styles. The shoe also comes at a reasonable price with a nice selection of colorways. The Royale Knit is an instant classic.
