Best Sustainable Shoe Brands for Women You'll Want to Know
Sustainable shoe brands featured here come in an array of styles for every season. And each has a unique story about how they approach manufacturing in an eco-friendly way.

Two sustainable shoe brands here are Certified B-Corps, Allbirds, and Nisolo. Two others, CARIUMA and Yatay, along with using eco-friendly materials, neutralize their carbon emissions through tree plantings. CARIUMA, which is on track to becoming a Certified B-Corp, runs a Reforestation Program in the Brazilian rainforest.

For summer footwear Freedom Moses is a sustainable shoe brand worth considering because its slides are made from PCU, a recyclable Polyurethane material.

Carrie Forbes is another sustainable shoe brand offering summer sandals. The brand's footwear is handwoven by artisans in Morocco using sustainably sourced raffia from the palm tree marshes in Madagascar.

You can also find several sustainable shoe brands specializing in sneakers made from the latest high-tech materials derived from post-consumer plastic bottles and bio-leather made from corn.
