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!
