I totally support green, eco-friendly companies who try to make a positive difference in our world. SoleRebels is a great company with with an amazing founder, Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu. She was recently on the Women to Watch list in of Forbes World’s 100 Most Powerful Women 2012. soleRebels is proudly the planets only World Fair Trade Organization [WFTO] FAIR TRADE certified footwear company.
Now that you know a little bit about this wonderful company, let me tell you about the shoes I received. I had been wanting and looking all over for a comfy pair of slip on shoes, not ballet flats though, I have a ton of those. I wanted something comfortable that would stay on my feet, a pair that I could slip on with a pair of jeans and wear socks with. I looked here and there in different stores with no luck. Then, I remembered seeing the type of slips on shoes I had in mind on the soleRebels website. These are the shoes I chose, the PureLove homegrown:
Note the soles made from recycled tires and the craftsmanship of the stitching. I slipped these shoes on and was astounded at how comfortable they were.
They are easily one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever owned.
I finally experienced the companies slogan “walk naked” for myself…it’s as if my feet are naked when I have these shoes on…only better because they are protected and the soles provide such good support.
I highly recommend using their sizing chart, it is extremely accurate and will help you determine what size you should get. I normally wear a size 9 or 10 (yes, I have large feet), depending on the shoe, I always have to try shoes on when I am buying to ensure a comfortable fit. In this case, I printed out their sizing chart to measure my foot, it was a little bit past the 9.5 mark, so I decided to order a 10 and they fit wonderfully.
