Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
–Patagonia's Mission Statement
OUR REASON FOR BEING
Our values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted. The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.
For Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. We donate our time, services and at least 1% of our sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide.
Staying true to our core values during thirty-plus years in business has helped us create a company we're proud to run and work for. And our focus on making the best products possible has brought us success in the marketplace.

There’s strength in numbers. That’s the reason Patagonia co-founded The
Conservation Alliance back in 1989.
Since 1985, Patagonia has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment.
The Leather Working Group demands that the minimal environmental footprint in the tanneries we use be monitored and at least maintained, if not reduced.
We offer a number of shoes that are made without any animal by-products – solvents are water-based, uppers are synthetic or natural fibers.
Eco insulation technology combines 50% recycled material with PrimaLoft virgin fibers to create a high-loft, thermally efficient insulation.
A number of our soles are made with Ecostep, a Vibram®-formulated compound that uses up to 30% recycled scrap rubber that would otherwise be thrown away.
Vibram® Trek compound is formulated for an ideal balance between the competing needs of grip for secure traction, and abrasion-resistance for extended durability.
Hevea Natural Latex - The latex we use in our outsoles comes from the milk of hevea trees. Hevea natural latex provides a natural cushion underfoot which helps us to tread lighter and be more comfortable doing so.
Recycled Rubber - Flashing is the excess rubber that squeezes out between the parts of a mold when compressed. We collect flashing rubber off the factory floor and use it in some of our outsoles – up to 20% of the rubber in our recycled rubber outsoles is flashing rubber.
Patagonia makes shoes for all seasons. They also take their footwear seriously, creating shoes with terrific, sturdy and high quality materials that can withstand a truly active lifestyle. The best part is that they take their technology and construction and they apply it to every shoe they make. This means whether you are wearing a pair of Patagonia boots, or a pair of sexy Patagonia sandals, the same quality standards and the same amazing comfort apply. You’ll order a pair of flip flops, for instance, and when you finally feel them on your feet, you truly understand the difference that is Patagonia footwear. They are sturdier, more comfortable, more stable and even better looking than you ever thought they would be.
We love Patagonia for their versatility. Here at PlanetShoes.com you’ll find Patagonia athletic shoes, boots, casual shoes and sandals. And what’s more, the styling of all these shoes is seamless. You’ll find sleek and sexy strappy sandals, classic ballet flats, adorable slip on loafer styles and sturdy hiking and walking options. Patagonia is applicable in every part of your life – and whether you’re walking through the city on your way to work, or through the woods on a boggy spring day, they have a shoe or a sandal that will keep up with you.
Men’s Patagonia shoes are just as good looking and versatile as the women’s – just in that cool guy masculine kind of way. You’ll find the classic Maui moc alongside slick and well designed Patagonia sneakers. Men’s Patagonia flip flops bring comfort and durability all summer long and you know Patagonia footwear has a reputation that is second to none when it comes to hiking and outdoors. Patagonia shoes look cool, feel great and will work on casual Friday, all weekend at the bars or in the woods.
