This Toronto-based ethical brand is making shoes and clothing that use clean cuts, quality material and transparent manufacturing practices.

Looking to be part of a movement to end worker exploitation in the fashion industry, Luigi Sardo sources its footwear and clothing to a small factory in China that has less than 100 workers and pays above average, as well as a family-owned shoe manufacturing business in Portugal. With this, the ethical brand creates products of the highest quality that people can feel good about buying. Shoes are made with leather uppers, laces and linings and a suede sole.

The shoes are simple and stylish, offered in black and white options. Shoes come is a low, mid and high cut which are complemented by the brand's streetwear style clothing -- which includes cargo joggers, crewneck t-shirts and long sleeves.
