Whether you’re looking for beautiful boots with a funky edge or super feminine sandals, Alohas might have it for you and even in your size! They have a vegan as well as a leather collection. They work with an on demand system which means that they don’t work with large stock amounts and they go against overproduction. These shoes are definitely worth the investment, I can tell from experience.

Not that much can be found on their sustainable practices, however I have had their shoes for years, and I can honestly say, the quality is incredible! The shoes are made in family owned factories in Italy and designed in Berlin, Germany. So if you’re looking for boots or mules that will be with you for 5 years, I would say go have a look!

Vivaia is fusing modern technology with sustainable practices to create sustainable footwear. They use recycled materials and 3D technology, to create a seamless 3D knitted design for the ultimate combination of comfort and function. Thanks to the 3D knitting, this is a zero-waste process. The insoles are super comfy and soft and the shoes are machine washable, so super easy to clean and to give them a long lifespan. (make sure to use a washing bag or filter to protect from microplastics).
