We’re Just Footloose and Fancy Free!
Ever wanted to find a great looking pair of shoes that are good for the environment that you can wear out everyday? Well Unstitched Utilities has the answer to our prayers – they have created affordable, stylish and incredibly comfortable shoes that are made from repurposed materials.
Connect with the Earth with every step you take! The shoes made by this fantastic company are created with grounding technology which allows you to get really connected with the earth. They are incredibly comfortable and stylish to boot (no pun intended). Stop over and visit Juil’s website to learn more about grounding technology.
Just because you’re a fan of fashion, doesn’t mean that you can’t live in harmony with the Earth and all her children. Olsenhause gives us fashionable shoes that do not in any shape or form inflict pain or injury or death on animals. You can rest assured that with a pair of shoes from Olsenhaus you are both a fashionista and an environmentalist. Rather than use leather – which is stretched animal skin soaked in chemicals that are extremely detrimental to the environment, Olsenhause uses natural and recycled materials that are safer and more durable than leather.
Kalso Earth Shoes:
Danish yoga instructor Anne Kalso developed these shoes that are “fit” for a healthy lifestyle. These shoes have a negative heel base that is based off of Mountain Pose and are designed to mimic walking barefoot – because as much as we’d like to be barefoot and free, Pittsburgh Winter’s make that impossible. These shoes both improve posture and reduce stress on your joints. Oh and they look GREAT too.
Born in 2001 Juil is dedicated to making shoes that are as comfortable as walking barefoot, let’s be real we all wish we could go barefoot all the time – or at least the two of us do! The founders of Juil realized that traditional shoes block the flow energies and insulate in ways that can be potentially harmful. With our well being and comfort in mind they have designed and created GOOD LOOKING shoes that do so much more than just provide a barrier between your feet and the ground.
Blake Brody In-Studio Footwear:
Yoga meets slippers… in a much more fashionable way. Eco-conscious and innovative shoes to wear when you’re in the studio. These shoes are anti-microbial – they fight moisture and bacteria. The shoes are respectful of the foots natural range of motion and are careful not to limit this in any way. There is much more technology and design involved in these in-studio shoes than we can tell you in a short blurb so please go visit them!
