Modern footwear production is surprisingly damaging in various ways.
As the pace of fashion has quickened people have begun buying more shoes and throwing them away more easily. The quest for cheaper and faster production has also encouraged the exploitation of vulnerable workers through long hours, low pay and dangerous working conditions.
Traditional shoe-making skills has given way to mass production, wasting precious resources and resulting in an average of three pairs of shoes per person being sent to landfill every year.
It's not rocket science. Durable, well made products lead to less consumption of all kinds of resources.
Uniform Standard sneakers are designed with this in mind. Less and better.
