Tread Rightly

Posted June 6, 2008
The quest for the perfect summer flip-flop can be long and painful—who knew that such an innocent-looking shoe could leave your feet crying for mercy? But Corso Como’s Summer Sandal is heaven-sent. Built in Brazil, these shoes are a step up from the rest of your flip-flop arsenal in that they are padded on the inside and cushioned on the sole. We’re partial to the black patent but would be equally comfortable in the brown, nude, or mint. And in addition to realizing that your feet need support, Corso Como also lends a hand to the environment: It's committed to ensuring the rights of its local workers, its shoe boxes and wrappings are made from recycled materials, and the leathers are dyed with nontoxic vegetable dyes. So now you, and your feet, will be at peace with the Earth.
