And the winner is…

Stacy! Who gets the shoes from Simple Shoes for arguing on behalf of the illustrious and life-bearing Natalie Portman:

I think that Natalie Portman is the greenest celeb. Not only is she vegan (I can’t consider ANYONE green if they aren’t at least a vegetarian) but she has her own clothing line that is totally cruelty free. She is outspoken on all environmental issues and she really lives what she speaks about.

Yep, she rocks. Thanks to everyone for playing and keep tuned for the next cefashion contest!

Musings on Men’s Fashion – Review of Simple Shoes Tuba Sneakers

Green is undeniably in fashion these days – and, no, I’m not talking about the color. And while being environmentally responsible is always a wise way of living, it is a relatively gree-I mean, new approach when it comes to garmenting. Simples Shoes is one such innovator and pride themselves on producing sneakers from recycled and organic materials. But does following the three-R philosophy promise quality footwear?

There are a lot of things to like about these “Tuba” shoes. For one, they’re really comfy with and without socks. I trekked around the Back Bay of Boston this past weekend and, boy, were my dogs mostly silent. I think we can attribute the softness of their step to the polyurethane foam and recycled rubber making up the pedbed. As for the inside, the seams are padded well with super-soft cotton and the sides of the shoes allow for air circulation, so no dreaded feet swampiness here despite the summertime humidity.

Another selling point on these shoes is their thick and strong laces. Made from organic cotton as well, the laces stood up to yanking and exposure to water without widening or getting overly fuzzy. They also match the rest of the shoes’ design very nicely.

Of note, I found some of the fabric at the upper edge threading and pealing slightly , which makes me worry a little about the general construction of the shoe. It’s too early to say how they will stand the test of time, but for the time being they’re sharp-looking and, again, very comfortable. Feel free to check out the Simple Shoes facebook page for more information about the brand and their other products.
