So I have these High Tops that came, in a sense, from a great idea. Autonomie Project, Inc. is a parent company that works with small independent, employee owned and Fair Trade Certified manufacturing facilities in developing areas of the world. They are giving these companies the opportunity to tap an American commercial market they would not under normal circumstances be able to take advantage of. By reworking the global marketplace in this manner they are helping to balance the worlds economy.
Now for the product, I received a pair of the Ethletic High Top Sneakers. I chose to go with the all black, since I own a pair of sneakers in the same style in a different color. The shoes are great, they are totally comfortable, fashionable, and reasonably priced on their website. The shoes, certified by the FSC and the Fair Labeling Organization, are also 100% Vegan. Fair Trade Premium was paid for the rubber and the shoe stitching as well. I wore them to work 4 days in a row, never had a problem. My coworkers commented on how they liked them, one asking where he could purchase a pair.
Overall it’s a great product and a great company. Autonomie Project is said to be expanding its line of products as well so check them out. I found a great product I love, you might do the same.
