The Nisolo Chelsea Boot
I came across Nisolo a few years ago when I noticed a girl wearing a pair of their Oxfords at our local brewery. I loved them so much that I approached her and asked her where she bought them. At the time, I didn’t think I could justify the price point, but jumped on the opportunity to purchase a pair during their Black Friday sale, and that’s when my love affair with Nisolo began. Not only are they a beautifully made pair of shoes, but the brand promotes sustainable and slow fashion. As I become more aware of the benefits of creating a more conscious lifestyle, I am searching for clothing & shoe companies that align with that vision and am happy to have found Nisolo.
The Oxfords became my staple wedding shoe (I wear them throughout the day, sometimes 8+ hours) and I receive a compliment every time I wear them.
All Nisolo producers receive, at a minimum, beyond fair trade wages, healthcare, and a healthy working environment.
They responsibly source leather from tanneries committed to the ethical treatment of animals (always a byproduct of the meat industry) and the implementation of eco-friendly waste disposal systems.
Most products come from a factory they own and operate in Trujillo, Peru, but they also source from ethical partner factories in León, Mexico. Jewelry is made by independent artisans in Nairobi, Kenya.
Last April Nisolo reached out to me about a collaboration. I was honored as I’m no blogger, and was thrilled to be working with a company that I loved and supported. I took their Isa boot to Italy, and continued to fall in love with the quality of their shoes.
Fast forward to November 2018 when Nisolo reached out again regarding their Chelsea Boot. It was such an honor to be approached by them once more, because again #notablogger.
It was right around the time of Brent’s birthday (their timing in impeccable) and we were headed out of town to celebrate at Tourist’s Welcome in the Berkshires, so it was the perfect opportunity to wear a new pair of shoes. I was 20 weeks pregnant during this trip and have been all about a no-frills / all comfort wardrobe, so the Chelsea boot was the perfect addition to dress up my casual maternity looks.
