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!
