Avril - Guilt-Free Kicks
BRAND PARTNER: Lacess
Think these shoes are cute?
Yups! We think so too! And we deliberately made them versatile and timeless, so they can stay part of your wardrobe for multiple seasons!
From matching jeans to dresses, you could pretty much wear these everyday for a whole week!
And the 5 dots are super cute right? They're inspired by children's connect-the-dots activity books, because we want to connect a community.
And just how comfortable are these shoes?
SUPER COMFORTABLE! The insoles are squishy yet supportive with arch support, and layered with a sheet of natural cork to keep your feet feeling fresh.
Don’t just take our word for it though, check out the verified customer reviews below.
So why are these shoes “Guilt-Free”?
We're glad you asked!
Well there are 3 key reasons:
Use Sustainable Materials
Employ an Ethical Supply Chain
Give Back to the Community - specifically to young victims of human-trafficking (learn more here)
So they’re a pair of shoes that not only comforts your feet, but also your mind and conscience? Sign me up!
