Becky Bones: Shoes With Attitude For Eco-Conscious Teens & Tweens
Becky Bones is an eco-conscious footwear company who has teamed up with Osiris, producing edgy and sporty shoes with attitude for teens and tweens. Teen Vogue, Cosmo Girl and Seventeen have all raved about the company, dubbing them the perfect “Skater Girl” shoes.
Becky Bones’ tagline “Save the Earth, Save yourself” is the force behind their company and products. In fact they currently give back 25% of profits for grassroots solutions like planting trees, starting recycling programs and other green projects.
The fun, edgy and colorful shoes are extremely appealing to young adults, teens and tweens – even the designs are made with them in mind. I think many girls will find these highly appealing, especially for back-to-school shoes! In regards to comfort, these shoes are cushioned and comfy, made from materials that are meant to last!
Along with their commitment to helping the environment, Becky Bones has eliminated all glue in their recycled shoe boxes. They are also:
- Integrating bamboo into their shoelaces and insoles
- Researching other sustainable materials to integrate into their shoe designs
- Working on a recycled rubber for their outsoles
- Researching water-based glues
This line will be available at select Kohl’s in June (including an exclusive “just for Kohls” set of designs shown above), in sizes 11 (kids) through 6. Larger sizes are available at retailers like Journeys, Amazon.com, Zappos.com and shoes.com, where sizes go up to 10.
