Since my ‘sustainable awakening’ I have been looking for a pair of (sustainable of course) white sneakers!
It’s taken me a while to come around to really wanting a pair as they’re synonymous of the shoe nurses or dental assistants wear, a bit clinical! How wrong I have been, the white sneaker has revolutionised my way of dressing as they look spot on with pretty much everything.
Now there’s only a handful of sustainable shoe brands, Veja being one of the popular ones but they tend to come up wide for me. I really wanted a style that looked like it belongs in the pages of Vogue and on street style shots.
I was watching the documentary Fashions Dirty Secrets ( Stacey Dooley) which featured ethical footwear brand Po-Zu showing how their footwear is Vegan, Ethical & Sustainable – Shoes With A Good Sole. Similar to the Denim Industry modern footwear manufacturing often causes damage to people and the planet however Po-Zu have found a different way.
It was then I fell for the Sneak V Off White Silver style, a simple style with the Po-Zu butterfly logo detail perforated on the sides and a touch of silver on the back.
Below is exactly the neat type of sneaker I had in my mind’s eye, a perfect denim pairing!
The price is surprisingly slightly lower than a branded sneaker at £99 / $126. They are so comfortable, I haven’t taken them off since they arrived! They can also be washed in the machine on a cold wash only.
Po-Zu has their end of season sale on with up to 70% off (not these sneakers). Have a look, as sustainable can be chic too!
