Eco-Find: Earth-Friendly Shoes with Fashion Sense
April 16, 2007
What: Better for you â€“- and the earth â€“- shoes like the Pirouette 2.
Why: You know how running uphill makes you work harder than going down, or how when you increase the incline on the elliptical machine, you start feeling muscles you never knew you had?
Such is the concept behind the Kalso Minus Heel incorporated into the Earth brandâ€™s stylish shoes, such as these Pirouette 2 flats. The negative hill built into the shoe forces you to walk on a slight incline, helping you to burn more calories as you walk around town. At the same time it helps correct your posture by forcing you to stand straight.
An added bonus? The Pirouette 2 is a fully vegan shoe. Made of faux suede or microfiber, itâ€™s hard for others to know itâ€™s not the real thing. Plus, users can take advantage of the adjustable strap to find the position that works the best for their feet.
Although the negative heel takes some getting used to, after a few days of walking around, I felt straighter, stronger and happier with this vegan contribution to the earth.
