Customer reviews

  • Caroline "Most comfortable hi-tops ever! I absolutely live in these at the weekend and they've survived everything I've thrown at them including muddy festivals!"
  • Ramos "On paper these shoes are unbeatable in terms of sustainability. The latex for the soles is from FSC-certified forests, and the canvas and shoelaces are made from Organic cotton, which is also certified Fair Trade.

    The problem is they don't last. I wore mine every day (no sports or running, and I didn't walk more than a couple hours each day) and by like 7 weeks they were falling apart. The canvas developed holes in it, the point at which the canvas met the sole came apart in several places, and the rubber sole wore through. Now it's 3 months since I've had them and the sole has worn through so much that I can see my socks! The final straw was when I realised that they had been chewing up all my socks at the heel (and that was like 4 pairs of my fave Maggies Organic psychedelic cotton socks that fell on the battlefield...)

    Design-wise, I'd also suggest they put the lower-most shoelace hole closer to the toe of the shoe, like converse all-stars. They look a bit clownish as they are.

    So overall, very dissatisfied, but I'm still behind this company for their pioneering efforts to make sustainable footwear. I hope that this was simply the growing pains of their first efforts, and if they ever addressed the poor build quality (and lack of durability of materials) and released an improved shoe, I'd give them another chance. Unless of course by then there's another brand offering affordable Fair Trade & Organic shoes... then I'd give some other company a go."
