Simple Shoes c/o the Nature Shop

As an environmental scientist I often wonder how my interest in fashion and career choices can interact with each other. Something I'm extremely passionate about is our planet and the way we look after it and I take great measures in my life to protect its future. Sustainable products are definitely the way forward and in a world where fashion is often regarded as disposable and ever changing it's hard to find the right balance between the two. So when the Nature Shop contacted me about reviewing a pair of Simple Shoes from their website I was extremely interested because they produce sustainable and vegan friendly foot wear made from recycled materials.

Environmentally friendly shoes do come with one down side and that is not a large selection of styles, however I was delighted to spy these navy converse look-a-like trainers. I've been wearing them to work this week and they are so comfortable plus I love the elastic laces detail which make them much easier to wear. I think they look quite similar to Converse in real life too which is a big bonus for me as that they style I was hoping to achieve from them.

I'm so thankful to have been introduced to this brand and you can even buy the shoes in plenty of different shops such as the Nature Shop, Schuh and Topshop Oxford Circus so it you're interested in sustainable fashion please do check out the Nature Shop website.

  3. I'm in love with your skinny jeans!
    I've never quite seen them in such a lovely shade of red before. And I'm a sucker for outfits in blue and red. Beautiful, as always.
