Natural Silk Sneakers Give the Traditional Mary Jane Style a More Comfortable Twist in Purple

These beautifully made silk sneakers will keep your feet cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cool because of the natural protein fiber found in silk. The organic cotton lining is printed with a feminine floral graphic while the bottom of the shoe is made out of a salvaged car tire. Simple Shoes created one more shoe, the Women’s Caramel shoe below shown in Hortensia, that is sustainable and you actually can live and work in – and it’s so pretty.

Planet Friendly and Comfortable – Shoes Are Made Right By Simple Shoes.

Shoes for a healthy planet. Simple Shoes. Back in 2004, they realized that the shoe industry was not the most Earth friendly. That's when Simple Shoes decided to change themselves first. Starting with two simple designs from all natural materials, they continued to grow to where they are today.

Being committed to making their shoes 100% sustainable, you'll find sustainable materials such as Organic Cotton, Hemp, Bamboo, Recycled Car Tires, and Recycled Inner Tubes. It's quite easy to find the level of sustainability in their categories "good, better, best." Obviously the "best" category represents the most sustainable shoes.

In addition to the Green Toe collection started in 2005, Simple Shoes later added ecoSneaks and Planet Walkers. Later the packaging was reduced in 2006 to 100% post-consumer recycled foot forms and boxes, and biodegradable bags for the flip-flops. Then in 2007 the industry voted and Simple won the first every Footwear Plus Green Award.

Eco-Friendly Converse Alternatives

Eco-Friendly Converse Alternatives

Move over Converse, there’s a new sneaker in town. The Autonomie Project, a Fair Trade fashion company, offers an eco-friendly footwear alternative. You can see the Ethletic™ low-top sneakers to the right. Upside – they are a stylish and sweatshop-free sneaker made of eco-friendly materials. Downside – they cost about double what the Converse Allstars cost. So until Converse gets to work on developing an eco-friendly or organic version of the beloved AllStars, we’ll have to spend the green to get the eco-friendly version.

These organic cotton canvas sneakers are actually washable. You are able to throw them in the washing machine and the dryer! Apparently they hold up quite well.
