Emerging Gear

MUNJOI, founded by shoe designer Patrick Hogan, is out to make plant-based shoes — specifically, versatility, and sustainability wrapped up into a durable footwear package. The 4-in-1 All Dai ($98) is a sneaker, backless mule, sandal slide, and open-toed sneaker combo. “With almost 70 million pairs of shoes manufactured every day, there is a need to create less footwear to reduce our footprint,” said Hogan. “Why buy four pairs when you only need one?” Cheers to that — minimize consumption, maximize style.
