Finding a boot that looks premium, that can withstand the intense weather over here in Amsterdam, and is ethically made is a rare find. And, here at Digital Warble, we scour the web to find the ethical brands that look at the world in different ways to create such magical unicorns.
However, before we dive into the stunning Nisolo Andres All Weather Boot, it’s with grave disappointment to say that unfortunately, Nisolo’s web shop isn’t ready for shipping outside the United States as of the date in this article. So we can’t get our hands on a pair to try these out yet.
It’s difficult to know where to start when talking about this brand. From their 1% donation to a grassroots organization, to 100% carbon offset shipping, to the beyond fair trade wages, healthcare, and a healthy working environment. Nisolo are truly an impressive ethical and sustainable clothing brand.
They claim to be as transparent as possible in their production techniques and sustainability, ensuring people both and planet are considered and cared for. Nisolo takes great pride sustaining long-held traditions like the Peruvian shoe making art form they champion inside their own factory in Peru’s shoemaking capital Trujillo.
Although not 100% outside of the animal leather realm, the Andres All Weather Boot is made from a mixture of responsibly sourced leather from tanneries committed to the ethical treatment of animals and the use of eco-friendly waste disposal systems.
To tackle the weather and terrain, this stunning ethically produced boot is water-resistant and features a Vibram 430 Mini Lug Sole with a stronger grip than a rock climber. Keeping your toes nice and dry is a breeze too with a gusseted tongue that allows you to withstand the elements.
