John Carp/Violet


Part of our Project Sustainability™ collection, the John Carp Violet features our newest eco-friendly material innovation: carp leather made from grass carp fish. Grass carp are an invasive species in North American waters, so in working to reduce the carp population, we’ve created a palette of carp leathers to accent your favorite silhouette. The all-around white recycled leather and suede details keep it fresh with a violet recycled carp leather heel tab and matching violet recycled laces.

This pair features a speckled tread made from recycled mixed materials.
