Greener pride: shoes!

My greener pride is rooted in my love for shoes. Not your typical response, but shoes are my indulgence. I’m greener proud though that rather than always buying a new pair, I’ll get my shoes repaired. Whether it’s making sure to winterize them before stepping out fabulously into a rainy day, or getting my favorite boots resoled, I’m proud that my shoe collection is far more than a disposable hobby, it’s a collection I’ll live life in for years to come.
