Chipkos Sandals for Men & Women Review & Giveaway

Chipkos is a lifestyle oriented shopping company that specializes in socially conscious products. Here is a description of the company and their mission: Company Background - Chipkos takes its inspiration from The Chipko Movement, a historic environmental effort which first took place in India in the 17th century. Indigenous villagers protested against the logging of their land by literally attaching themselves to their trees. 'Chipko' is a sanskirt word that means 'to stick'. By 'sticking' to their trees, these villagers were, in a sense, the first treehuggers, and the Chipko Movement was the first group environmental effort ever recorded in history. Chipkos was founded by Priya Dua (a former math teacher).

I ordered a pair of Chipkos women's sandals to review in black. The first thing I noticed was the square ends which are neat. There are little gold "C''s on the strap and the words " Stand for square feet" are embroidered inside the straps, nice little details that make these sandals stand out. After I wore my Chipkos for a few hours I couldn't believe how comfortable they are! You don't even realize the straps are there, no chafing or rubbing and they absorb shock, it's like wearing pillows on your feet. They are made with 100% vegan products and environmentally friendly products. In addition to be very stylish and comfortable Chipkos will protect 100 square feet of Rain Forest for every pair you buy, how awesome is that? You can be stylish and socially conscious at the same time when you purchase from Chipkos.

  1. I'm happy to hear they're as comfortable as they are cute. The older I get, the less tolerant I am for fashion without practicality and comfort!

  2. These sandals really do look comfy, and so cute. I love my flip flops but I walk a lot and these sandals look like they would be better for my feet.
