This cobalt blue shoe is bright and summery, and the material is durable, high-quality Italian faux leather. Bourgeois Boheme also has a large selection of men’s shoes.

2. Sydney Brown Flat Sandal


Sydney Brown is a Los Angeles–based designer. Her shoes are handmade and free of animal products. Instead, they contain materials such as coconut insoles and “reclaimed wooden soles, aiming to create every pair of shoes with a ‘cradle to cradle’ life cycle.”

Pharrell Williams owns an eco-textile company called Bionic Yarn, and this collaboration between him and the Timberland boot company does Mother Earth a good one by creating unisex boots made from a blend of organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles. The boots feature two designs to choose from: honeycomb and blades of grass.
