Step it up with eco-friendly footwear

Shrink your ecological footprint (pun intended) with eco-conscious kicks. We dig these nautical-themed Melissa docksiders ($69), constructed of recycled PVC plastic, and unique runAROUND FULL shoes (US$75), made of organic cotton and recycled tires by soleRebels, the only WFTO Fair Trade certified footwear company. Kids can run around in feel-good TOMS Blue Black Block Youth Botas ($50) or Purple Zig Zag Pop Youth Classics ($45)—for every pair you buy, TOMS donates a pair to a child in need.
