Berkeley sustainable clothing retailer Convert is the exclusive retailer (until the end of this season) of these insanely awesome and eco-friendly platform sandals. (There are also four flats in the collection, but you know how I feel about platforms.) The prices range from $98 to $108. I also learned something new: Jeffrey Campbell is a small, family-owned L.A. biz (I kind of assumed they were part of some giant conglomerate)! Loving their shoes as I do, that was music to my ears. The five designs available at Convert (deliveries start May 15) are made of sustainable and vegan-friendly materials, including dead-stock fabrics, biodegradable fiber, jute, and glue that’s free of animal products. I suggest you hop on BART stat and get thee to 1809B Fourth Street in Berkeley sometime between 10am an 6pm Monday through Friday, 10am to 6:30pm Thursday through Saturday, or 11am to 6pm on Sunday.
UPDATE! Convert is taking advance orders now! The shoes will ship between May 15 and June 15. Just in time for my bday, hooray. Check out the other designs in the gallery!
