You care about the environment and do your part in as many different ways as you can, including in what you choose to wear. How you tread on this earth matters to you so eco-friendly shoes are important. Dardano’s has a wide selection of eco-friendly shoes for both men and women that combine the right materials with the right fit and feel for you. Here’s just a sampling of what we have to offer.
Kalso Earth’s vegan Intrigue Too in Moss (currently $75.00) is cute and sporty with an elastic strap over the instep for security and to give a twist on the popular Mary Jane look. Uppers are made of soft textiles with added perforations to improve breathability. The negative heel design places your forefoot at a 3.7 degree incline promoting better posture. The footbed is removable to allow for custom orthotics.
Beautiful and yet whimsical, the Think! Julia Leaf Thong 82330C37 in Fuxia/Kombi ($194.95) is a slip on sandal that keeps your feet feeling as pretty as they look. Leather uppers have intricate, colorful cutouts for a distinct look. The moisture-wicking sock lining keeps your feet cool and dry while it rests comfortably on a built-in arch support and heel cup. The cork footbed absorbs shock while you walk, molding to the shape of your foot for a custom support made by you, for you.
Dansko Volley Canvas (currently $42.00) in all black is, perhaps, the dressiest of the Volley Canvas collection, allowing it to go from work to play. Lightweight with rubber toe bumpers, 100% cotton canvas uppers and 100% nylon microfiber antimicrobial socklining, this shoe is all comfort. It has a removable contoured rubber/EVA footbed and carries the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance. And, of course, it’s vegan-friendly.
Olukai Men’s Nohea Mesh in black ($85.00) is a laid-back slip on you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again. Mesh uppers are breathable while the Dri-Lex lining provides a soft place for your feet, drawing unwanted moisture away from skin. The EverFit footbed is contoured to provide personalized support where you need it, but it can be removed to use in custom inserts.
Go from city streets to mountain trails easily with Chaco’s Men’s Z/2 Yampa in Metal ($99.95). The vegan sandal has uppers made from polyester jacquard webbing for durability. Signature “adjust’em” fit straps allow for maximum adjustability while the LUVSEAT platform footed provides stability and leverage no matter what terrain you cover. The lug treat on the outsole provides slip-resistant, non-marking traction.
Laid back, yet very classy, these OTZ 300gms shoes in beige ($79.95) can keep you looking good and feeling comfortable all day and into the evening. The Italian coarse linen stone-washed upper is flexible and durable. Your foot rests on an anatomical cork footbed that provides support to every curve of your foot while naturally absorbing shock with each step to ease strain on joints. A natural jute and rubber outsole provide traction that’s durable too.
