Shoe Week, Day 1: Corso Como
Several weeks ago, I started a conversation about shoes that are both socially responsible and stylish. Amber commented, “there aren’t a lot of eco-friendly cute shoes,” and Grechen was inspired to make an awesome list of Eco-Friendly Shoes Around $50 (That Aren’t Ugly). (Marais, Melissa and TOMS are all on the list, so be sure to check it out.) I figured it was time I threw some sweet options into the mix, so get ready — for a week of SHOES!
Corso Como Key, $133.
As I’ve written before, Corso Como shoes are ethically made by hand in Brazil of vegetable dyed leathers, with a portion of each sale going to women’s and children’s charities. I’ve never worn a pair, but doesn’t that sole look immensely comfortable?
Note: My list won’t quite be so budget-friendly as Grechen’s, but for my dollar-vote, I say they are well worth it!
