Reader Request: Ethical Black Flats

So the gorgeous Noelani mentioned that she was looking for some black flats and maybe it would be a good idea for my next ethical footwear post, and I agree- so here we are!

I’m sure Noelani’s not the only one in the search of the perfect black flat, so I was really happy to go on a little hunt for a variety of this classic shoe.

All these lovely black flats are cruelty free and made ethically.

    Perfect timing with me and my blog reading! I love all the flats, I can’t imagine how you managed to edit down. I think my fave pair is the Melissa Dreaming + Julia Petit, they would go with everything of course. And look to be water proof, added bonus! I’ll let you know what I settle on for spring, still in search phase….this gets me off to a fabulous start!

      that’s my favorite too!!! melissa shoes are water proof and they last forever! they’re also not the plastic jelly shoes from like our youth, it’s super high tech plastic they make to be very soft. they’re one of my favorite ethical shoe brands out there… i mean i have 3 pairs (blushing) and i’m totally going to get the julia petit’s too.

      the jlia petit’s are available in more colors on melissa’s actual site here:
