Twisted X has teamed with Mossy Oak on a collection featuring its iconic Original Bottomland Camo print on select driving mocs, boots, boat shoes and more. The handcrafted styles feature ecoTWX Tweed uppers (made with 13 recycled water bottles) while the outsoles of select styles are made of rice husk, a sustainable by-product of the agricultural industry. In addition, for every pair sold Twisted X will plant a tree. To date, more than 3 million bottles from polluted oceans and landfills have been salvaged and more than 200,000 trees have planted. It’s all in part of the Texas-based company’s mission to become carbon neutral by the end of 2020.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Mossy Oak as they their passion for conservation mirrors ours,” says Twisted X CEO Prasad Reddy. “Being able to further out ecoTWX offering with the iconic Bottomland Camo enables us to reach a broader audience while helping better our planet.” Reddy adds, “We have a responsibility as humans to help the environment and community we live in.”
“As the Official Camouflage of Conservation, it’s important to us at Mossy Oak that we not only support the mission of conservation, but we also appreciate partnerships with companies that share that vision for caring for nature and wildlife,” says Chris Paradise, chief sales officer for Mossy Oak. “Twisted X makes a unique line of footwear with a focus on sustainability, and we’re excited to have the Bottomland pattern featured in their lineup. Buy their shoes and a tree is planted. A purchase that gives back to the environment is an easy purchase to make.”
Mossy Oak’s Bottomland Camo launched the brand more than 30 years ago. The pattern features a one-of-a-kind outline-breaking ability that helps hunters blend into dark hardwoods, flooded timber and tree stand environments.
The Twisted X / Mossy Oak collection can be found at Boot Barn, Sharpe Dry Goods, Outdoor Equipped, Stockyard Style, Sikes & Kohn’s and soon at Bass Pro Shops, Orscheln Farm & Home and Zappos.
