Shopping List: Ethical Crossover Slides



This post contains affiliate links.

Last year around this time, I was on the hunt for black sandals. It ended up taking me over 6 months to find my ideal pair, The Melissa x Jason Wu studded sandals I’ve worn every other day this season. Maybe this year, I’ll find the crossover slides I want before warm days are over?


Crossover sandals are undoubtedly the sandal of the season, at least in the circles I run in. 

They’re sporty and simple, and the right shape and detail can make them suitable for a huge range of occasions. Plus, the slip-on factor means they’re the thing you’ll turn to on your way out the door on a busy morning. In the summertime, I live in slide style shoes, but my Birkenstocks are not the most elegant choice, so a pair of crossover slides might be just the thing I need, preferably in a neutral shade other than black since I already have black sandals.

MY TOP ETHICAL CHOICES


1. Everlane Form Crossover Sandal, $118

Made in Italy with transparency.


2. Minda Living Leather Slide via Accompany, $78

Fairly made in Morocco out of vegetable tanned leather.

3. Sseko Designs Crossover Slide, $69.99

Fairly made in Uganda out of local leather.


4. Deux Mains Minouche Sandals, $48.99

Fairly made in Haiti out of local materials.

5. Ilano Jing Rust Slide via Accompany, $98

Fairly made in Mexico with recycled rubber soles.

Right now, I’m leaning toward the Deux Mains sandals because I like the idea of the navy color and streamlined look. But I’m interested in your suggestions and reviews.

Have you tried any of these shoes?
