Fashioned Green: the New Summer Flats

Once teetering in six inch heels, the tides have turned as we usher in a new breed of 'it shoes' for the summer. Enter the woven slipper. Let's call it the product of good karma for all those hours spent on unstable stilts waving pain away in the name of Fashion (with a capitol F). That's right, slippers are the new shoe du jour and I am ecstatic! Don't get me wrong, there is a time and place for a sexy heel. For everything else we now have 'outside' slippers. Happiness is.

Go green with this summer's must-have shoe. We find amazing quality in the braided mule style slipper from Mohinders. Mohinders works with a shoe cooperative in Karnataka, India that employs artisans to hand make their designs. The leather is vegetable tanned and they source their materials directly from entrepreneurial artisans in India. Not only do their ethics check out, but so does the comfort factor. Bring on the lazy days of summer.
