Often times today’s market makes customers feel that they need to buy more to be happy instead of reminding customers that they are enough. Many brands pressure consumers into believing they are not good enough and, in a sense, are against self love. Z Shoes Organic is defying this by crafting a shoe that represents positive values all around. Z Shoe’s new Self Love Collection features an ethically crafted sneaker that empowers, inspires, and encourages women to love themselves.
Z Shoes Organic empowers communities in developing areas through responsible material sourcing and craftsmanship of their sneakers. I am so in love with their new Self Love collection! The new leather sneakers were designed to encourage women to feel confident in their own skin and embrace being perfectly imperfect. The “#ZFORSHE” campaign launched during women’s empowerment month and has continued to give back through their donations. For each pairs of Self Love shoes sold, Z Shoes donates $5 toward empowering women around the world. Z Shoes has partnered up with 3 amazing NGO's; Not For Sale, UN Women for Peace Association and World Wide Women. Each purchase directly supports their ongoing effort to empower women and create a world where no women is for sale.
The Self Love Collection has a few different colors and styles differentiated by empowering words such as Bold, Fierce, & Worthy. Customers can find a mix of black and white or pink and white shoes within the collection. These gorgeous leather sneakers are made from responsibly sourced leather. The upper part of the shoe is made from ethically sourced cow leather, the inner lining is crafted with responsibly sourced goat leather, and the sole of the sneaker is made from wild amazonian rubber. These beautiful sneakers are ethically crafted in Portugal with Z Shoes partnering factory. Their partnering factory employs 200 local residents. This number includes 60% female employees. Luckily these ladies are paid an equal wage as their male counterparts. I really appreciate that Z Shoes has checked that the factories ethics match the values of their new collection which focuses on empowering women! So great to see brands emphasizing their ethics in all aspects of their product!
I can’t say enough positive things about these shoes. As you all know, I struggle with anxiety, so self love has been a journey. But I’ve been in a pretty good place the past year. Learning how to value yourself and love your flaws can be a challenge, but I think the journey of getting to that point of confidence makes you a stronger person. Self love makes you value yourself and others who stick by you during difficult times. Self love encourages you to want the best for your future. Self love can inspire women to empower others to reach self love. Self love is a journey and I love that we can walk through this journey wearing a shoe that truly represents positive values.
I love everything the Self Love Collection stands for: empowering women and encouraging them to love themselves. So wonderful. These leather sneakers are a great conversation starter, not only because they’re fashionable, but because of what they represent. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and I can tell they are crafted with high quality materials and will last a long time. The minimalistic style of the sneaker makes this the perfect shoe for pairing with a pair of jeans or going for modern style with some classic streetwear. 10/10 recommend the Self Love Collection by Z Shoes Organic! I highly encourage you to check it out!
