If you have to walk a mile in someone’s shoes, they might as well be these handcrafted Argentinean alpargatas by Pauline in Love. Similar in style to the popular TOMS, these on-trend foot-cozies pack a lot of comfort and style while supporting ethical labor through the Working World, a nonprofit organization that helps local craftspeople and independent factory owners bring their products to the consumer market.
The refreshing twist on this ethically minded classic? In addition to the basic melange jersey and leather styles, Pauline in Love offers fashion-forward options in organic-cotton canvas, including this glitzy faux cobra-skin print in both fuschia and emerald. Bonus: 100 percent of the Working World’s profits are channeled into its La Base microcredit fund, which metes out loans to cooperatives and fair-trade businesses in Buenos Aires and Nicaragua.
