Looking for some eco-friendly shoes? Let me introduce you to Wildling Shoes, and I’ll do you one better: Sustainable shoes that also cater to the health of your feet and overall well-being? Here is my review of Wildling Shoes.
I slipped into my first pair of Wildling shoes and could immediately feel the difference. Most walking shoes have thick soles that wind up weakening our foot muscles. The materials are super soft and the textiles are flexible, for a comfortable feel.
The soles are thinner, so I’ve noticed my strides have become a lot shorter and gentler too. I’m walking way more mindfully, whereas with regular shoes I barely noticed the ground underneath my feet.
Wildling makes minimal, barefoot shoes from all-natural materials. They use cotton, hemp, wool, linen, and cork wherever possible. Wildling uses plastic at a minimum, and it’s typically from recycled materials, which I love.
When selecting their production partners, they’ve chosen ones in compliance with fair working conditions and environmental standards. They regularly visit their production partners to carry out quality controls.
Overall, they use less resources and materials needed to make the shoe in the first place, which means the product has a low impact on the planet. They also participate in a number of sustainable projects.
