Great Strides

Eco-friendly apparel is one fashion trend that’s perpetually in season. Better still when it hinges upon a diverse piece that enhances both the beauty and function of a well-rounded wardrobe. Port Washington-based shoe company Orcatex Design masters this concept with its Orca Classic shoe. The lightweight, breathable material with a decidedly minimalist style combines with a non-slip sole to make the shoe versatile enough to go from beach to street. It’s also a feel-good purchase. A portion of the proceeds is donated to marine wildlife conservation efforts. $45;
