Simple Shoes Debuts Colourful & Eco-friendly Footwear for Children For Fall 2010
Eco-Certified Suede, Recycled Wool and Certified Organic Cotton are the materials used to create Simple Shoes‘ new fall 2010 kid’s line. The use of recycled wool is a new one which is making it’s way into the fashion industry. Second-hand wool sweaters from second-hand or thrift stores are used and rewoven into super soft and cozy fabric, thus preventing more build-up in today’s landfill sites.
The Weegee booties for babies have fun appliqués, including a submarine and octopus or a squirrel and acorn. These cute shoes are made from a wool blend and washable suede making them fully machine washable.
The Woogee (pictured above) is a new toddler boot for boys and girls that feature washable suede uppers and recycled nylon button closures which make the job of putting shoes on your little monkey, easier.
For girl’s, ages 4-8 years-old, the Sidecar is a fall knit-boot made to keep small feet warm. It is made from eco-certified suede uppers and certified cotton linings. The slouched knee-length boot will be available in maroon, navy and black.
For boy’s, the Carport Elastic comes in chocolate and black, featuring both the eco-friendly suede and leather uppers as well as recycled wool. The shoe is a slip-on sneaker and is built for kids who don’t like doing up their laces! In production, Simple Shoes uses post-consumer recycled inserts, a biodegradable “pedbed” and a sole made from recycled car tires to make the Carport.
Simple’s new line will all be available online and in stores August 2, 2010 followed by the girl’s Sidecar on September 1, 2010.
