Fair Trade Athletic Footwear

I wanted to avoid buying shoes from sweatshop conditions… but finding a socially responsible running shoe is really, really difficult.

So as I was training for my first marathon I hoped to find a good pair of Fair Trade running shoes. I Googled to find some options. I do not necessarily endorse these, but they are provided to help with your personal search in ecoconscious friendly athletic shoes and/or Fair Trade Athletic Footwear.

What are your thoughts about Fair Trade running shoes? What are your experiences with them if you have purchased them? Thanks for your help!

    1. I ended up going with Brooks Running Shoes for now. I preferred to use a pair of shoes that I could try on at the store because the fair trade options I found needed to be shipped through the mail. If I ever travel to boston, I would get the Hersey shoes though.

      P.S. – You should check out my Liebster Award Post if you haven’t already, because you are one of the 7 blogs I nominated : )
