For many modern consumers, there's more that goes into making a purchase than simply liking a product. Today's buyers care about the ethics of the company behind the item. They want to know that the business treats its workers with respect, that it values the community it is a part of, and that its production methods don't have a negative impact on the environment. This last factor has a lot of attention lately, especially within the fashion industry.

Sustainable fashion aims to reduce the number of resources fashion companies consume and the amount of waste they generate. All types of consumerism impact the planet and with global retail sales projected to hit $27.7 trillion in 2020, the production of consumer goods hasn't slowed at all. By focusing on sustainability, however, the fashion industry has the opportunity to utilize renewable resources and recyclable materials.

Shoeography: Bottega Veneta's Former Director Launches Sustainable Shoe Brand

The former director of Bottega Veneta, Mirco Scoccia, is doing just that. After working with luxury brands across Europe and the United States for decades, Scoccia wants to create beautiful Italian footwear that doesn't contribute to fashion's problematic waste issue. Scoccia, who is the current creative director of Aerosoles, has launched a new shoe line called O2 Monde.

"I worked for luxury companies and I just saw so much waste during production. I stopped to think about what could we do to make it more sustainable?," Scoccia said.

Scoccia has crafted a line of women's shoes that include a variety of styles, from comfortable flats and sneakers to chic heels. All of the shoes use sustainable textiles. One of the textiles is Freska, which is made from a mixture of corn and cereal. Another is Pinatex, which is made from pineapple and Vitigna, a leather-like material that comes from grape skins. Scoccia is prioritizing vegan-friendly materials like these and took almost three years to find them. He sourced many of them from the car and interior design industries. With these alternative materials, O2 Monde doesn't have to rely on plastics and synthetics, which are harmful to the environment during production and fill up landfills when they're thrown out.

This commitment to sustainability is the type of initiative that many environmental activists would like to see all companies take. However, getting legislation to regulate this in the United States is difficult. After a proposed amendment has made it through Congress, it still needs to be ratified by three-fourths of the states. Since that hasn't happened yet for a major environmental bill, this leaves it to individual companies, like O2 Monde, to put in the effort to be sustainable.

The innovative new collection from O2 Monde includes many styles named after different female activists who have been involved in environmentalism and conservation. For instance, Greta Thunberg, the young environmentalist who took the world by storm in 2019, inspired the collection's Greta sneaker. To push its eco-friendly work even further and offset its environmental impact, O2 Monde will be donating 1% of its profits to One Percent Planet. Check out the new collection today to support a sustainable footwear brand making waves in the fashion industry.

In terms of fashion, there are few things worse than being between shoe sizes. As you browse the shelves at your favorite shoe store, every pair you try on is either squeezing your toes or hanging off the back of your foot. Buying online can be even more harrowing, as every pair you order just doesn't seem to fit quite right and is relegated to the back of your closet in hopes that a miracle could make them fit one day.

The Formé shoe shaper is that miracle. The creator of Formé, Maureen Stockton, has reimagined the classic shoe shaper and given it a modern twist. With two decades of experience in product development, Stockton invented Formé after she struggled with breaking in shoes. Stockton had a closet full of shoes that she adored but rarely wore because the fit was just a bit off. So she set out to invent a shoe shaper that would allow her to wear the shoes she loved without the pain of their ill fit.

Shoeography: If the Shoe Fits: Formé Shoe Shaper is Revolutionizing the Industry

"We’ve used them in everything from Rothy’s and Toms to Louboutins, Jimmy Choos and Tamara Mellon pairs. In their closets, women have shoes they really want to wear but can’t. That’s where they get excited about Formé," says Stockton.

Formé works by stretching and shaping to fit a variety of shoe types. You can change the form of the device into several different silhouettes to improve your comfort and fit. With the push of a button, you can modify your Formé shoe shaper for use in a round toe, pointed toe, square toe, pump, or flat. This allows you to use Formé for heels, boots, flats, sandals, sneakers, and practically any other type of shoe. It's also safe for any material, including leather, fabric, and synthetics. You could be one of the 47.88 million people who bicycle and need your sneakers to be slightly roomier or you could simply want the flats that you wear every day to fit more comfortably. Whatever your reason, Formé can help you and your footwear woes.

Once your device is in the right form for your shoe, it can stretch it up to half a size with seven different adjustment positions that control the stretching force. This function is perfect in the age of online shopping. Whether you're looking online for professional pumps for your new job or you're among the 93% of brides who use the Internet to plan their weddings and virtually found heels that perfectly match your dress, you can buy a pair in your normal size and use Formé to make them fit comfortably. This takes the stress out of purchasing shoes online and worrying that they won't fit and you'll have to return them.

The appearance of the Formé shoe shaper is also appealing to the fashion-conscious. It has a sleek design with a champagne, pearlized tone. The device also includes air vents that help remove moisture from your shoes and it helps get rid of wrinkles that form on the toebed of your shoes. This will help keep your shoes looking better for longer in addition to making them actually wearable. The product has an even greater sustainable impact because of its packaging, which is made of recyclable paper pulp.

The Formé shoe shaper is available in four sizes that cover shoe sizes 5 to 12. Wear your shoes in comfort and style by ordering your own pair of Formé shoe shapers today.

For many people, sustainability is more than just a passing fad. In fact, 48% of homebuyers looking at new builds cite energy efficiency as their most desired feature, while countless consumers prioritize environmental responsibility over other factors like design or price. With that in mind, popular sneaker brand Allbirds has something special in the works: the first plant-based leather alternative that's set to debut as part of their line by the end of 2021.

Shoeography: Allbirds Explores Plant-Based Leather to Make Shoes Even More Sustainable

Known for making the "world's most comfortable shoes," Allbirds was founded in 2014 but has skyrocketed to popularity in recent years. The insoles of their lightweight shoes are made from a merino wool fabric, which not only wicks away moisture and minimizes moisture but provides the brand's signature walking-on-a-cloud feel. Many Allbirds fans say that the experience is unbeatable, particularly because these shoes are machine-washable. And despite the fact that they feel like slippers, they actually hold up well to athletic activity. Although over 800,000 patients are hospitalized each year due to fall injuries, good footwear can often prevent these kinds of incidents -- and wearers often swear by these shoes, despite their high price tag.

Allbirds has arguably changed the game in terms of comfort. But now, the brand is set to make a splash in regard to sustainability, as well. The company announced a $2 million investment in a business called Natural Fiber Welding to produce the world's first all-natural leather alternative, which will be used in footwear that's set to launch this December. Made from natural rubber, vegetable oil, and other bio-ingredients, this plant-based leather is totally biodegradable. Not only does it have a 40 times lower carbon impact than leather, but it uses 17 times less carbon than plastic-derived synthetic leathers. Therefore, this material will appeal to both vegans and environmental advocates, who would otherwise be at-odds pertaining to more traditional leather alternatives.

Shoeography: Allbirds Explores Plant-Based Leather to Make Shoes Even More Sustainable

Explained Joey Zwillinger, the co-founder and CEO of Allbirds, in a statement: "For too long, fashion companies have relied on dirty synthetics and unsustainable leather, prioritizing speed and cost over the environment. Natural Fiber Welding is creating scalable, sustainable antidotes to leather, and doing so with the potential for a game-changing 98% reduction in carbon emissions. Our partnership with NFW and planned introduction of Plant Leather based on their technology is an exciting step on our journey to eradicate petroleum from the fashion industry."

Although Allbirds does still use animal products like wool in its footwear, the company has a history of embracing sustainability in its designs. Already, Allbirds has used fiber knits made from eucalyptus and EVA foam derived from sugarcane. And because these plant-based leathers are considered open-source technologies, other shoe brands could start using these materials once they're developed. That could mean more competition for Allbirds, in theory, but that's an overall win for the environment.

As it is, Allbirds seems to be doing quite well for itself. Despite the fact that 70% of business partnerships fail, there seems to be no stopping Allbirds co-founders Tim Brown and Joey Zwillinger. Not only did they launch a partnership with Adidas last year, but they also managed to secure $100 million in Series E funding in the midst of the pandemic. Allbirds actually has plans to expand its retail presence at a time when many brands are closing their brick-and-mortar stores. And although public sales figures aren't listed for the company, investors purchased a stake of the company for $1.4 billion back in 2018. It's likely that the brand has done well during COVID, as the company chose not to delay or cancel store openings.

With so many people seeking comfort during the pandemic, it's no surprise that Allbirds seems to be soaring to new heights. And with an ever-growing interest in sustainable practices and products among consumers, there's no telling how high the brand could fly.

Between this winter's fierce snowstorms and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many people are itching to get out of their homes. If you're among those who are ready to safely get out into the world again, you need to make sure you have the right shoes.

Luckily for you, HYTEST is releasing new members of its FootRests 2.0 family around March 8, just in time for the arrival of warmer weather. The CoreTemp Collection has four new styles that feature technologies to ensure breathability, support, slip resistance, and all-day stamina. The styles in the CoreTemp Collection are meant to provide dependability and safety to people who work in tough environments.

The four styles in the CoreTemp collection are the Charge 6” Hiker, the Charge 8” Hiker, the Zone Chelsea Boot, and the Crossover Wellington Boot. Not only do these styles help you walk safely, keeping all 33 bony vertebrae in your spinal column safe from slipping and tripping, but they all feature the new CoreTemp Temperature Control Lining Technology. This technology absorbs heat from your body and your surroundings. It then creates a cooling effect and can release the stored heat energy to warm you when you need it. This continuous cycle of heating and cooling manages your temperature to maintain comfort all day long.

If you've ever experienced foot pain or have suffered a podiatric injury, you know just how important wearing the right shoes is. You're also not alone; over 20 million adults have difficulty walking or climbing stairs. Below, we'll explore the critical factors to consider when buying a pair of athletic shoes for the perfect fit and function.

Shoeography: Put Your Best Foot Forward: How to Choose the Right Athletic Shoes for Your Feet

Shock-Absorption

Whether you're running, jumping, or simply walking, your heel must be protected. Look for shoes with extra shock absorption in the heel and under the ball of the foot. This feature can help prevent shin splints, stress fractures, and other injuries caused by overuse.

Light Weight and Flexibility

To prevent foot fatigue, choose a light-weight athletic shoe and one with a soft, flexible upper (the part that covers the top of the foot. If you plan to move around quickly – if you're playing tennis, for example – you'll want a shoe that offers flexibility in the sole underneath the ball of the foot. Where you won't want flexibility is on the inside and outside of the foot; make sure the shoe has stability on the sides to prevent your ankles from rolling.

Arch Support

Some people have low arches while others have high arches. Regardless, you'll need an athletic shoe that comfortably hugs the arch of your foot to reduce unnecessary pressure. If you have a chronic foot ailment, like severe flat foot, high arches, shin splints, or tendinitis, you can get custom arch supports to insert in your shoe. These custom inserts concentrate relief on one area while supporting other areas of the foot.

High-Top vs. Low-Top

You might assume that high-top athletic shoes will do more to protect your ankles, but that's not necessarily the case. A study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research reported that there was no difference between participants who wore high-top shoes and those who wore low-tops. Still, the study did show that high-top athletic shoes stopped the participants' ankles from moving as much, and over time, those participants lost flexibility in their ankles, making them more prone to injury.

Foot and ankle injuries are more common than you might think. It's important to note that if you were injured at work and your injury is covered by workers’ compensation, your first temporary disability payment is due within 14 days of your employer receiving notice.

Your shoe needs may differ from those of your friends and family, so always talk to your doctor about choosing the right footwear if you're experiencing pain or chronic discomfort. You can get a recommendation from your primary care physician or even a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs make up approximately 11% of the physician population in the United States).

Over 145 million adults report that they include walking as a part of their physically active lifestyle. To always put your best foot forward and protect your health, choose the right shoes for your feet.

Wearing sneakers without socks is a distant dream for many people. While they want the streamlined look of sockless footwear, forgoing socks when wearing sneakers can quickly lead to unpleasant odors and the possibility of contracting conditions like athlete's foot. Yet, wearing sneakers gives people stability and surefootedness. Slip and falls are the number one cause of accidents in restaurants, hotels, and other public buildings. Not only are sneakers essential for those with active lifestyles, but they're essential for the safety of athletes and non-athletes alike.

Shoeography: LONO: The Sockless Sneaker for an Active Lifestyle

With a design that prioritizes comfort and safety, LONO is solving this footwear conundrum. LONO is the ultimate eco-friendly, breathable, and vegan sneaker. The design of LONO is meant to mimic the natural connection between the human body and the earth. The creators of LONO were inspired by sagebrush bark sandals, which were the first known human shoes. Not only is this inspiration seen in the natural connection between the shoe wearer and the planet, but LONO is even made with tree bark.

Shoeography: LONO: The Sockless Sneaker for an Active Lifestyle

 With the help of modern manufacturing technology, the LONO team transforms tree bark into fine yarn that is used as the sneaker's zero-waste flyknit upper. Other sneakers use wool for this part of the shoe, but the tree bark yarn is soft and quick-drying, making the shoe both comfortable and breathable.

An AIRSIP mesh pattern enhances the shoe's breathability even more, allowing for significant airflow in the shoe. This feature also provides the perfect balance of stretch and security, helping you avoid those slip and fall accidents, which are the leading cause of workers' compensation claims. LONO also has ELASLET, which is an elastic that is fixed on the shoe's top eyelet. This gives the shoe stretch so that you can slip your foot easily in and out of the shoe without having to adjust the laces.

Shoeography: LONO: The Sockless Sneaker for an Active Lifestyle

 While the creators of LONO chose all of these features so that you can wear them without socks, those who prefer wearing socks with sneakers don't have to feel excluded. LONO has invented the SOLESOCK, which is a sock for the shoe's insole and is able to be swapped out when it gets dirty.

According to the founder of LONO, Ben Hui, another goal of the shoe's design is to maximize the potential of organic materials to make LONO a functional shoe option. This is in contrast to some companies that are using the sustainability trend for marketing purposes rather than as a core function of the product. A wide variety of industries have been pivoting towards more eco-friendly practices in recent years. Even the shipping container industry is on this trend, as about 3,500 kilograms of steel is reused for each recycled shipping container. Whether this focus on sustainability is truly for the environment or is meant to appeal to eco-conscious consumers, its certainly affecting how products are being designed and manufactured.

Shoeography: LONO: The Sockless Sneaker for an Active Lifestyle

 LONO is the perfect option for consumers who want to remain true to their sustainable ideals but don't want to sacrifice comfort or quality. The casual design allows consumers to wear the shoe anywhere, from a trip to the grocery store to a sporting event. Wherever you go, you can count on your feet staying cool and crisp.

If you've always wanted the luxury of going barefoot, LONO is the practical option you need. This vegan footwear will allow you to live in comfort while keeping your body safe. Check out LONO's Kickstarter today to choose from nine color options and pre-order your pair of LONOs today.

Every business has a story. Some, however, are a bit more noteworthy than others. And the lucky few are shared on platforms with over 11 million followers, inspiring everyone who reads it and receiving some well-deserved attention.

 Humans of New York, the social media photo series known as HONY that highlights the stories of New York City's residents, recently profiled Atoms founder Sidra Qasim. In an 11-part interview, HONY took followers through Sidra's journey from being a young girl living in a conservative Pakistani household to launching one of the 28 million small businesses in the United States with her husband Waqas Ali. Since the feature on HONY, the couple's footwear brand has seen an overwhelming outpour of support and record sales. They're even offering HONY readers a $30 off coupon for their signature sneakers, enticing even more people to purchase their unique shoes.

Shoeography - Atoms Shoes Shares Inspiring Story with Humans of New York

Sidra's story starts with her upbringing in Pakistan, where she was expected to marry and raise a family. Instead, Sidra dreamed of being independent and pursuing her own passions. She was met with roadblock after roadblock, as her average grades couldn't allow her to be a doctor or lawyer and her parents only became more conservative after a pilgrimage to Mecca.

Luckily, Sidra met Waqas. Waqas was her aunt's student and was the only person who would talk to her about the greater world. He always took her opinions seriously and they became fast friends. While Waqas went to study in Lahore, Sidra enrolled in a local college and was one of 15 female students. She reunited with Waqas after a year and a half when he came to a play she put on to raise money to help families affected by a recent flood. Waqas asked her to come to Lahore to become his business partner.

Her parents refused at first but after seeing how depressed she was at home, they let Sidra go to Lahore with Waqas. There they started their first company, Social Media Art. The internet was just starting to shape business in Pakistan and they aimed to help brands create a social media presence online. Although they knew that digital first impressions were 94% design-related and had the skills to help brands, they didn't get much business.

Shoeography - Atoms Shoes Shares Inspiring Story with Humans of New York

As savvy entrepreneurs, the couple pivoted their business and started helping a group of local craftsmen market their leather shoes online. After spending time with the craftsmen learning the trade, Sidra and Waqas launched their collection, called Hometown Shoes, online and got their first order soon after. With shipping costs and other expenses of running a business, they struggled to make a profit. The couple had an idea to launch a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $15,000. When they woke up the night after launching it, they had already reached their goal. By the end of their campaign, they were the largest Kickstarter in the history of Pakistan.

Sidra and Waqas reached another milestone when they decided to marry. Devoted to their budding business, the newlyweds skipped over their honeymoon and instead applied to an accelerator program in San Francisco called Y-Combinator. Since the program is incredibly selective, the couple didn't expect that they would be accepted. They had spent years learning about American entrepreneurs, who have engendered successes such as Minecraft which sold 200 million copies in just May 2020 alone, and didn't think their successes stacked up. They were proved wrong, were accepted into the program, and were in San Francisco by the next month.

Their experience in the program didn't go quite so well and showed them that their concept of a luxury leather shoe brand wasn't what consumers wanted. So they pivoted yet again, this time creating a line of casual shoes that you can wear anywhere. The team researched the highest quality materials, gave their notes to a talented designer, and together they built a prototype called "Atoms." They chose this name because they'd gone to the atomic level in the pursuit of quality.

Shoeography - Atoms Shoes Shares Inspiring Story with Humans of New York

With a simple design, Atoms can fit anyone's personal style and be worn to go to the grocery store, to the office, or to a date. They come in quarter sizes to give wearers a more precise fit that results in less strain on the body. The design of Atoms features an insole that cushions your movements, laces you don't need to tie, and an odor-fighting copper thread lining.

All of these qualities have struck a chord with shoe aficionados and novices alike. Within just 12 hours of HONY sharing Sidra and Waqas's story, Atoms had topped their previous biggest sales day by 500%. Their total lifetime amount of shoe sales had increased by 30%. Sidra shared with HONY that she was touched seeing how other women related to her story and the entire Atoms team was in tears because of the amount of support they received.
