Move over Toms. Osborns have arrived.
The shoes are handmade in Guatamala and are entiredly fair trade with locally sourced materials. Co-founder Aaron Osborn, whose family runs one of the largest orphanages in Guatemala, stumbled upon the idea for Osborn in 2007 when he met an out-of-work cobbler. Osborn officially launched in 2009, and that first cobbler still works with them full time.
"Each and every Osborn shoe represents not only a fashionable statement, but also a step in the right direction in respects to world employment and sourcing standards." Read more about the company here. Money well spent if you ask me!
