Great article! When my partner and I were looking for new shoes, we came across a local company that really got it. "All of our shoes are made in Australia under fair working conditions. The way we see it, there’s no point creating a pair of shoes in the third world under unjust conditions and then turn around and give back to the community."
My partner's sneakers always broke at the same area, but these shoes were hand stitched in that area rather than just glued on. If you're interested, we got them from gideon.com.au
