What summer shoes do you wear on repeat? During warm months, our whole team lives in shoes from Nisolo, the sustainable Nashville-based company…
We love Nisolo’s beautiful styles and mission: Nisolo is a Certified B Corporation and provides living wages across their supply chain. As a Climate Neutral Certified brand, they also measure, reduce, and offset 100% of their carbon emissions.
In the summer, I go for shoes that feel good while working at home, hanging out at the park with the boys, and walking to our neighborhood bodega for snacks. These knit sneakers are cool and comfy — even on long podcast walks during Brooklyn’s golden hour. They also make me look sportier than I actually am, which I kind of like?
Our California-based editor, Jannelle, loves shoes that can double for friend hangs and date nights. “These clogs have become my everyday sandals,” she says. “Some clogs feel clunky, but instead these are streamlined and modern. They’re also easy to walk in, which is key because I’m a klutz. When grabbing drinks with friends, I wear them with high waisted jeans, this belt and a T-shirt. For date nights, I pair them with a midi dress and denim jacket.”
Our partnerships director, Maureen, is spending her first summer as a mom to her four-month-old daughter, so she’s gravitating towards shoes that are stylish and easy to slip on. “Ama Mules are my holy grail shoes. They’re cute for walks with baby girl around the block, and they don’t require any bending down, buckling, or fastening. To tie my look together, I pair them with this bag, and I’m out the door!”
