This is a subject which I have a love hate relationship with - mainly because I LOVE ethical shoes, but hate that the average person scarcely can afford them. I understand that making ethical goods takes more cost, but sometimes these shoes seem priced so out of range it makes me want to weep. I have contemplated a shoe limit - like I will buy ethical made shoes but I will only have 2 or 3 pairs and no other shoes ( a boot, a heel, and a flat pair ). And of course, I will have to save up money for this venture. Terra Plana shoes can run well into $300 plus a pair, but mainly averaging around $260 . Which is why, it seemed a relief to find El Naturalista, who's created a wide range of less expensive then Terra Plana eco footwear for men and women. Less expensive does not equal affordable, but certainly more within reach- with some pairs starting around $80, and up to $260 for more intricate boot designs. One easy way to shop for them in the USA, is through Biz Rate : http://www.bizrate.com/womensshoes/brand--el-naturalista/products__att259--658222-__keyword--el+naturalista+footwear.html . You can also view the entire ethical shoe collection at the El Naturlista website @ http://www.elnaturalista.com/index.php/en !
