Though we appreciate practicality in a design, the humdrum composition and lack of color in sporty footwear is starting to get to us. In other words, lately, sneakers suck. Fortunately for all of us, there’s Inkkas, a shoe company that’s kicking things up, literally. Each pair of its unisex sneakers is handmade in South America, by local artisans who use authentic South American textiles in colors and patterns that are mind-blowingly cool. If that’s not enough to tempt you, listen up: A portion of proceeds goes towards protecting the Amazon and its inhabitants.
This socially conscious company was founded in 2012 by Dan Ben-Nun with one goal: promote beautiful, handmade shoes using traditional South American textiles. Inkkas strives to be a company that makes a beneficial impact on the world, not an exploitative one. With a focus on fair trade, philanthropy, and authenticity, proceeds from each sale help to save the Amazon.
