Shoe Week, Day 2: Olsen Haus
Olsen Haus Charm, $225.
All Olsen Haus shoes are vegan. “The livestock/leather industry is the largest contributor to global warming, land devastation, environmental pollution, usage of valuable natural resources and water supply contamination. … From start to finish, the amount of energy required to create a leather hide is 20 times greater than the production of a synthetic material.” I haven’t traditionally been opposed to leather, but this really makes you think, eh? Factories are vetted personally by the company and production is as local as possible in Central America.
