10 Shoe Brands with Soul
TOMS, Twins for Peace, Oliberte, Sseko, GROOBS and More

By: Bianca Bartz (Superstar) Jan 20, 12

By now you’ve probably heard of TOMS shoes, the slip-on flats that rocketed to fame thanks to their heart-warming one for one (or buy one give one) model. For every pair of TOMS you buy, they donate a pair to a child in need.

This model has been so wildly successful that it’s been adopted—and adapted—by other social entrepreneurs. This cluster of shoe brands with soul gives you a peak into the world of social enterprise footwear, featuring socially conscious brands like Twins for Peace, GROOBS, Oliberte Premium, SAWA sneakers, Sseko designs, Roma Provisions, soleRebels and of course, TOMS.

We opted not to include one-time charitable collections or limited editions that benefit a cause. All the footwear companies featured here have giving built right into the sole of their businesses.
