Sustainable Shoes For The Summer

When I was searching for a sustainable chunky shoe style I found the Portuguese footwear brand Nae. Nae means No Animal Exploitation. Cruelty-free, fair wages and good quality are very important for the brand.

All of the products of Nae are manufacture in certified factories in Portugal, where employees are respected as well as the environment. Moreover, they work with natural materials such as cork and pineapple. Recycled materials like airbag and PET – plastic bottles. From their new collection here are my favorites:

5 ETHICAL, ECO & VEGAN SHOES FOR THE WINTER

Leather alternative quality shoes it is a relatively new product which makes it difficult to find in regular shops. Luckily I found the Dutch webshop “En-&“. The owner: Laura, started the webshop where she only sells eco and vegan shoes. For her, it’s important to wear fashionable shoes, that no animal was needed to be the harm in the process. If you are looking for a more sustainable pair of shoes, then En& is the place to be. After checking out their current collection, I listed out my favorite pairs for you:

1. Bline black or brown

Made from microfibers with a special “leather” look. The microfibers are made from a combination of nylon, cotton, and polyester. The material is OEKO-TEX certified which guarantees that the production don’t make any waste of water or energy. Microfibers are as tough as leather and less prejudicial to the environment.

2. Etna airbag white

Ecological, breathable and anti-allergy boots made of recycled airbag. The production comes with the intention of giving a new life to a material that is no longer useful, reusing the nylon present in the airbags and give them a new purpose.

3. Basic black or white

Made out of Pineapple leaf fibers. This fabric is produced by an English company that works with local farmers in The Philippines. The pineapple production is not specifically to make shoes, they only use the pineapple leaves from pineapple that are consumed. The production is made by local farmers where the human rights and the labor laws are respected. Pineapple leaves are waterproof, breathable and anti-allergic.
