Looking for some cute sustainable shoes?
April 15, 2017
Sustainable shoes. I love them but I have to be honest: finding them is a pain in the ass. I mean: where can you find fashionable shoes that are also cruelty free? Do you feel the struggle? Than your going to be thrilled with this blog article!
Meet Pretty & Fair
Pretty & Fair is a Dutch brand that makes sustainable shoes that are pretty and fair. The Founder, Alinda van Teeckelenburgh worked in the shoe industry for over 15 years. During that time she realized that the production of shoes is more about the numbers and prices than about planet and people. She decided to start her own shoe label Pretty & Fair in 2016.
Pretty & Fair offers you 2 collections. The Eco line and the Happy Veggie line. Every ingredient that is used for making the products, is carefully selected. They use natural rubber for the soles, recycled PET bottles for the zippers and the glue is on water base.
Pretty & Fair wants to use the most sustainable products available. The shoes are produced in Portugal by a small family company that offers good working conditions for the makers.
What I totally love about this brand is how Alinda passion for shoes and natural fabrics. It’s such an inspiration to see that someone that is working in the ‘regular’ fashion industry made a switch and started creating something new. Next to that the shoes are super comfortable and stylish. From Pretty & Fair I received my first pair of sustainable shoes and I have to be honest: they don’t only look cute, they are super comfy as well!
‘WE ARE PRETTY FAIR AT PRETTY&FAIR, THAT’S WHY WE CREATED A SHOE BRAND THAT IS 100% FAIR TO PEOPLE AND FAIR TO THE PLANET.
Shopping isn’t only about what you wear, it’s also about where it came from. So wouldn’t it be great to wear a brand that helps to build
the world and look fantastic while doing so!’
Pretty & Fair Nobuck Jeans
Say hi to my new shoes. The Nobuck Jeans model has a higher fit and is perfect for your next city trip. The shoe has a real comfortable fit and is made of ecological nobuck and natural rubber. The removable insole is bio- degredable and I think that’s a pretty awesome detail. I never heard this before. What about you?
For the girls that have some troubles with keeping their foot cool during summer: the Nobuck Jeans are anti- bacterial and anti-odour. So you don’t have to be afraid of those smelly feet during hot summer days ;).
