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.

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.
