Next, shop their organic Cotton Collection. The six-piece collection is crafted from 100% Better Cotton Initiative cotton—better for you, better for the planet.
Footwear made from fruit? Yep! Jo-Anne Vernay crafts stylish heels from the fiber of pineapple leaves. We’re loving the look of the Mel-Heel in bold colors such as Cognac and Paprika. Constructed from biodegradable materials, these shoes are the ultimate in fashion. Plan ahead, though, as the Cognac style needs to be pre-ordered.
Another Black-owned sustainable shoe brand on our list is LØCI. With sneakers for everyone, they stock low-tops, high-tops, mid-tops, and necessary accessories as well. Take their quick quiz to “find your sneakers.” Our result? The LØCI X Temperley Seven.
