Simple Stylish Organic Shoes

Is it possible to find a shoe that is comfortable, stylish and eco friendly? I often asked myself this question when searching for toddler shoes. There were always a lot of cute shoes to choose from but they all seemed hard and uncomfortable. Simple Shoes makes sustainable shoes for adults and children that you can live with. I haven't tried their adult shoes yet but we just love their children's line.
Their materials:
My daughter tried the Toddler's Doogie shoe with uppers of floral print certified organic cotton. The binding is washable suede from an eco-certified tannery
It has a very soft suede strap that allows for a great fit. My daughter can easily put these shoes on by herself. The linings are really soft and are made of a certified organic cotton and hemp blend, while the soles are made of natural and recycled non marking rubber. I cannot believe they are washable! They even use a water based glue instead of petroleum based to hold the shoe together. The foot form inserts are made of post consumer recycled paper. The shoebox is made of post-consumer recycled paper, soy based printing ink, natural latex and starch based glue. They are such a pretty bright pink and I like how they never rub even when she has them on all day long.
Each size even has a different animal on the box! My daughter has quite a few pink and sparkly shoes, but Simple Shoes are her favorite by far! She can run, play, and even have a tea party in these shoes. They are a Mom's Best Bet for their sustainability, cuteness appeal, and their overall comfort!
