It is no secret that many women love shoes, and what better excuse to shop til’ you drop than for a good cause? Well, we found a brand that offers comfortable footwear and whose sales help a community-in-need in Colombia. Solas is a company that offers comfortable handmade shoes by the artisans of Santander, a town in Colombia where generations of residents, and mostly single women and elderly men, have dedicated their lives to making beautiful embroidered shoes using fabrics and cotton. The young Colombian and founder of Solas, Laura Viveros, shares how a trip to her native Colombia changed her life, and how in return, she is changing the lives of many residents in the region.
For every shoe you buy you’re helping several single mothers and elderly men in this region of Colombia, as well as offer more locals the opportunity to be part of the company. With each pair you’ll also receive a card with the information of the person who made them, making shopping a more satisfactory experience. Go to solesforchange.com and see the amazing designs, as these could become your new favorite shoes. You deserve it.
