Footwear brand Freewaters takes a minimalist approach when it comes to shoes and sandals. In fact, this might be the ultimate footwear for traveling. Scroll for pics.
Freewaters is a California-based company that was built for sustainability and giveback. The company was formed in 2010 and even before they sold their first pair of sandals, they established a clean water project in Kenya, Africa. They began making sandals and their first signature product was a pair dubbed “The Dude” no doubt inspired by the Big Lebowski. When it comes to being environmentally friendly Freewaters doesn’t play. They use PVC-free materials and water based glues for every pair of footwear created. In 2018 they introduced Responsibly Sourced Leather: by working with this award winning, Gold Certified supplier, 100% of the water used in the tanning process is naturally purified in on-site wetlands. In addition instead of using plastic polybags, their bags are made from a Cradle To Cradle certified eco stone powder. Today the company has a full line of sandals and shoes and they also have many clean water projects and other global initiatives to their credit. Freewaters is a company that walks it like they talk it. Respect!
We’re into all these styles, but if we could only take one pair with us it would be the Freeland Hi-Fi. This shoe features a breathable stretch-knit fabric in an easy slip-on design with a quick lace system, supreme foam cushioning and modern styling. An incredibly versatile shoe for work, coffee or that next trip to the market or overseas. This is where casual meets comfort. Yes, you need these.
