My new kicks:
Sole Rebels shoes are made in Ethiopia. They’re fair trade, and comfortable, too.
The company is owned by a woman, Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu, who employs only other women. She pays them a living wage. The materials are made locally or recycled (the soles are tires). She also has a vegan line that promises no animal products are used. There’s a Sole Rebels store in the Adams Pavilion shopping center near the school.
I liked my first pair so much that I went back this weekend and got another one.
