Kevin Porter, a vegan and professional BMX rider from Chicago, Ill., has teamed up with DuFFs, a manufacturer of skateboard footwear and clothing, to create a vegan shoe. Called the Tierra, Porter’s shoe comes in red and black, and is lightweight and streamlined, with a faux-suede upper and a polyurethane sole. This is not Porter’s first design collaboration—he has also created a signature line of frames, forks, and bars for Fly Bikes, one of his sponsors. A vegan since 2004, Porter is also a self-proclaimed coffee expert and guardian of two dogs.
