If the Shoe Fits: Simple Shoes

Greenista Girl Neha

Want a shoe that not only fits perfectly on you but also fits perfectly in nature? Turn to Simple Shoes. Forget of the old, beige sneakers you’re used to, now Simple has stylish kicks with an eco angle. Greenista Girl Brianne is lusting over the Mary-Jane slip-on sneaker, Carousel Grommet ($50), which is made from eco-certified suede, lead-free grommets, recycled PET Grosgrain ribbon, organic cotton lining, and recycled car tire soles. Phew! Talk about walking a mile in the green scene. There are also super cute boots like the ankle-high Pestoe Cable Knit, and the knee-high Brrlin boot. And did you know that all of Simple’s shoes come in post-consumer recycled paper boxes and use soy ink for the labels? Talk about a great fit.

Take A Step Forward with Greenista Guest Tatyanna

Finding well-priced environmentally-friendly children’s shoes isn’t always an easy feat. Enter Simple Shoes – a company with a zero impact ethos, aiming to be 100% sustainable, and taking many forward steps to get there. They also produce very well made shoes for babies and children up to the age of 12.

Their latest designs are up there with the most fashion forward footwear designers only Simple Shoes has the edge. Looks and comfort might be a draw, but the big appeal is what these shoes are made from: A combination of recycled carpet padding, hemp, eco-certified leather & suede, recycled car tires, recycled wool, organic cotton, and 100% post-consumer recycled paper to name a few … pretty cool!

The shoes are super cute and according to my six-year-old who’s wearing the satire elastic, they are: “Very comfy, they’re so comfy I want to wear them all day, everyday and never take them off”. He’s a pretty reliable source since we live in New York City and are out and on-the-go all day giving his little feet a work out. This fall he’s getting the Boys’ Carport Elastic slip-on sneaker.

My one-year-old baby also has a pair - she’s wearing the Infant Weegee, and since she isn’t structuring sentences just yet I have to go off how happy she looks wearing her shoes and the fact that they STAY ON!!! That’s always a plus in baby footwear.

Their new Fall/Winter collection for babies and children showcases some fabulous designs incorporating recycled wool from wool sweaters found in thrift stores around the world. Simple Shoes absolutely rock, and in case you weren’t aware, they come in parent sizes too. Simple Shoes will see that you tread lightly and take a step forward in the conscious shopper direction.

Each year approximately 290 million tires are discarded by Americans. The good news: Most old tires are used as fuel, while others are ground up and recycled into commercial and residential flooring, rubber mulch, rubber-modified asphalt for roads and athletic tracks, sports mats, civil engineering projects, rubber lumber, stall mats for horses, roof pads, shower tiles, and truck bed mats, and more recently, the fashion industry is recognizing the importance of repurposing used tires.
