U.S. Ethical Fashion Guide

Shoes, Socks & Slippers

Unfortunately, some of the major U.S. shoe manufacturers have had a long history of issues with child labor and low wages in their factories.  But below are ethically-made shoes, fair trade socks and handmade slippers you can purchase that are truly providing good and meaningful jobs to the workers who make them!

(NOTES: This is only a shopping guide so prices and availability are subject to change without notice.  If you buy through a few of these links, a small amount of compensation may come back to help support the mission of Change the World by How You Shop.)
