Dem Boys & Their Shoes…

I may be an uptown girl, but I love me some sexy downtown boys. Hmmm… I think I just had a flashback to the days of Billy Joel wooing Christie Brinkley. Today I’m gonna share a little secret with you fellas who are still trying to figure out what women want. You may think we want a “bad boy,” but the truth is we don’t. What we really want is a “nice guy” who can pull off that rebel without a cause, “bad boy” style. So guys, here’s some sexy eco-fashion that’s sure to give you an edge and drive all the women wild. They say you can tell a lot about a man by the shoes he wears – so let’s see what the eco-friendly kicks by Autonomie Project are all about!

Autonomie Project is a new Fair Trade fashion company offering stylish sweatshop-free, eco-friendly footwear, clothing and accessories. Hands down there best styles are their classic high-top sneakers. Made from 100% Fair Trade-certified organic cotton canvas and a tough rubber sole, these sneaks are the new Earth-friendly rage. The sole is produced with FSC-certified all natural and sustainable latex. Not quiet edible as some of my friends wish them to be, but FSC-certified means that the rubber comes from sap that’s been tapped from a tree growing in a well managed forest. Autonomie Project has a soul. Their rubber soles aren’t made from chemicals like other rubber products. Plus, all the dyes used on the canvas are PCP and AZO free. So you can feel guilt free about adding a splash of color to your footwear.

Autonomie Project’s mission is to supply high-quality, stylish fashions to consumers seeking to make purchases that align with their values without sacrificing their own personal style. All while making a positive social impact on our earth and raising awareness about today’s most pressing global issues. Their thirst for eco-fashion and creating a greener environment reaches across the world. Autonomie Project works exclusively with small, independent cooperatives and Fair Trade-certified facilities located in developing countries. They allot a portion of their funds to be used for initiatives that will uplift their workers’ entire community. They fund projects such as building health clinics and bringing steady water supplies to small villages.

If you’re ready to add a dash of style to your wardrobe, it’s time you check out Autonomie Project. Just beware – you’ll encounter lots of animals while wearing these sneakers - WOMEN. One glimpse of you walking by in Autonomie Project’s kicks and they’ll be chasing you down for your number. Other than sexy, wild women, you won’t find any other animals because their shoes are 100% vegan.

I think I've fallen in love!
