Ethical Sale Alert
I am often skeptical of hype around sustainable brands. The truth is, sometimes brand recognition is based more on how many influencers receive free products than on authentic interest in the product.
But when it comes to Nisolo (and Mata Traders), the hype is real. While I have worked with Nisolo as an affiliate – and received free product from Mata Traders several years ago – the items I own and use now are things I purchased out of pocket. That’s because quality is consistent, styles are truly wearable, and both companies’ ethics are not only sound, but also well-articulated.
I just ran into a colleague at the library today who was asking where they could find sustainable shoes. I told them that it makes sense to buy gently used if they know and like a particular brand, but after that, Nisolo ranks high on my list. Shoes produced with ethics and sustainability in mind can be cost prohibitive, so it’s really important to ensure that the quality is there. With Nisolo, I know that the price is worth it.
This is a quick post just to let you know that Nisolo is running an End of Season Sale. It includes several favorites from last season, including the Amalia Boot (shown above). I love this brown-green suede and have found that they hold up well in wet weather. See my full review here.
Get an additional 10% off sitewide with code, EOSSTYLEWISE, through 2/29.
But, if you’re looking for clothing, Mata Traders also has a full sale section right now, including the skirt I put on my wishlist in August. I also purchased a dress for my sister-in-law’s upcoming wedding!
Let me know if you end up getting anything!
