Sustainable shoe brands are more coveted than ever before. Samuel Baruch has a mission to recreate the idea of what style looks like and how it can be ethical while also leaving less of a carbon footprint. Fast fashion industry exposed by documentaries such as The True Cost has inspired many to dress and shop more ethically – but how does that filter down to our feet?
Footwear manufacturing can be fraught with many of the same ethical, social and environmental issues as clothing production – labour rights, fast fashion, plastic pollution, animal welfare, waste and recycling – heightened by the fact that shoes are made of so many different components, frequently contain animal-derived materials, and often come with performance requirements.
