A great fit for casual activities, Patagonias sneaker-style Womens Dawn Shoe has an environmentally friendly design and a dense insole for all-day comfort. Patagonia applied the same earth-friendly manufacturing processes used on their recycled fleece outerwear to their shoes, adding at least 15 recycled materials in the compression molded EVA midsole and 20 recycled rubber in the outsole. Patagonia also used natural hemp laces in the Patrol. Hemp is environmentally smart because it has a short growing cycle, requires little water or pesticides, and resists molds and bacteria in a variety of conditions. Youll also find hemp as a substrate in the soles for texture. If youre stuck choosing between the Dawn and the Patrol with the slip-on collapsible shoe, youll find that the Dawn has more distinct contrast accents and the styles tend to run a little more formal than the Patrol series. The Dawn colors are also a little more muted in hues that wont be out of style in a year or two.
