Yele Haiti Boots

Popular recording artist and Haitian Activist Wyclef Jean has collaborated with Timberland to produce a new line boots made from eco-conscious materials that they call Earthkeepers Yelee Haiti Boots. The boots boast such features as organic canvas, recycled laces, soles made from Green Rubber and leather from silver rated tanneries.

Proceeds from the boots were originally going to be used to help reforestation efforts in Haiti but they have since been redirected to the earthquake relief efforts through Wyclef's Yele Haiti Foundation.

Wyclef has been doing serious charity work in Haiti long before the earthquake struck and I am confident that his work will continue despite allegations that were made against him regarding mismanagement of funds. The allegations were found to baseless and unfounded.

  2. Wow these are awesome! Wish they had some that were a little more feminine, but these are still great! I love anything using eco-conscious materials!
