Puma Chairman Zeitz Sees End of Leather Use in Shoes, FT Reports

June 23 (Bloomberg) -- Puma SE, Europe’s second-largest sporting-goods maker, will one day stop using leather in its sports shoes and soccer boots because of the damage it causes to the environment, the Financial Times reported, citing Jochen Zeitz, the company’s supervisory board chairman.

“I think eventually we’ll have to look at alternative materials, there’s no question about it,” Zeitz, 49, said in an interview at the Rio+20 summit, according to the London-based newspaper.
