Unstitched Utilities Cosmo Low Earth Day Give Away

 earth2_1.jpg
I seem to have quite the fetish for shoes. I didn’t realize I had it, but it’s becoming very clear to me that I do. Not only do I have a thing for shoes, I have a thing for this planet. I really do love it. It’s evidence of God’s handiwork. We were put here to take care of it!

Lately I’ve been thinking so much about how we’re living our lives. It’s not very eco-friendly, but it has gotten better over the years. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into the lack of healthy living I’ve been doing.

One thing I’ve found in my search is that by purchasing eco friendly products, we’re making a difference. That’s where Unstitched Utilities comes in! I stumbled upon them last month and aside from how cute their shoes are, what drew me in was that they’re eco friendly and and vegan friendly. That matters a ton, especially since my 2nd daughter is living a vegan lifestyle. I try to do what I can to respect that!

So, about these shoes, they’re made out of TYVEK® Material. When I saw them for the first time I thought they looked like they were made out of paper. It’s because they’re unpressed. They’re really crinkly looking. The Cosmo Low sneakers are very lightweight. I’m not one to wear shoes around the house, but truly, I couldn’t take them off. They were that comfortable!

I didn’t feel like I was clomping around in some heavy shoes. They fit extremely well and I really liked the elastic inside the shoe to keep it snug around your foot. They’re a really cute, vibrant color!

And yes, I may have already found the next pair I’ll purchase on my own (shush up, no comments)! I think the Fast Lane design in LIMESTONE/CREAMSICLE are what I’ll get! Cute, right?!

I also love the Next Day Low in the camo for my oldest son! He would seriously go nuts over them. I was also telling Fred that now, since he’s going to be an elder at church he needs a couple of good pairs of shoes. The Rafter Lows would look so great with him dressed up for church!

Here’s a bit about how Unstitched Utilities describes their shoes:
“Fashioned from repurposed and recyclable materials, which are environmentally and vegan friendly, this line of sustainable forward-thinking shoes provide the consumer with a hip and trendy alternative to the usual standbys.”

I couldn’t agree more! They’re very trendy and extremely comfortable!
Now…woo hoo…you have the opportunity to win a pair of Cosmo Low shoes!

these are really nice. I like that they are so light. I don't like shoes that are so heavy they wear you out to walk around in. Thanks for the info!

I love the crinkled look - very unusual! They stand out and I love the eco friendly message you're sending out to the world wearing them!

I like that they are lightweight.

It's so nice to see more vegan option coming out and be decent looking. So often vegan shoes either meant crappy payless shoes, skate shoes or something that looked butt-ugly. The Rafter Lows look great and i can actually wear them to work in the summer!

I like the crumpled look they have. Wish they were a little heavier, I'm usually into tennis shoes.

Melissa Storms said...

They are very trendy, I love when you can find an eco friendly fashion item that is also cute.

These shoes are so comfortable looking and I love the way they look. I would love to have a pair of these. They have a variety of styles and colors to choose from.

Velvet Hubler said...

So neat they can make these awesome sneakers out of recycled materials

Chad said...

Love those shoes! They would look great on my wife. She would also love how they are eco-friendly.

They do look crinkly, but do they sound crinkly? I rarely wear athletic-style shoes (I favor ballet flats, loafers, boat shoes, or my trusty cowboy boots or combat boots) but I feel like literally being crinkly would be annoying. If not, these look and sound awesome as per your review!

Salad said...

there should be more shoes like this available in shopping centres so people can get access or at least know about it!

Jennifer Interian said...

Love these shoes. My favorites are the next day low in the color stone.

Amanda said...

I love these. LOVE. And Crinkly makes the rest of my clothes look tidier, right? :)

Great review-I try hard to lead a healthy and Eco-friendly lifestyle, and I'm a bit of a shoe addict-so finding out about this company is just perfect! I'm not a big fan of sneakers, but these look so cool and I love that they're lightweight-I definately have to get a pair (or 2, or 3... :) ) Thank you for the 'find' ~Raine~
