BEST OF 2008: Eco-friendy and sustainable shoes

Comments (8)

Another area that's come on in leaps and bounds this year is eco-friendly footwear. It's worth remembering exactly how uninspiring and dowdy vegan and ethically produced footwear was even a couple of years ago, and when I started on this blog, labels like Terra Plana were just starting out with a limited range of styles at mostly prohibitive prices.

Now, thanks to the likes of Natalie Portman and a host of imaginative and forward-looking designers, sustainable shoes are all the rage. We had loads of new labels starting up this year, including Nina Dolcetti, whose handmade party shoes are a joy to behold, while Olsenhaus brought in its Jackson Pollock-esque shoes. Meanwhile, we've seen ethical sneaker brand Veja move to London.
