Be a Convert
Sustainable shoes that don’t break the bank have made their way to Berkeley, CA. “The footwear industry is really rough on the environment, and eco-choices usually cost a fortune,” explains Randy Brewer, owner of Berkeley’s sustainable apparel shop Convert. That’s why he recently opened Convert Shoes, a store stocked with eco-friendly footwear for men, women, and children. “We’re really excited to be able to offer our customers affordable options that they’re dying to wear.”
Along with favorites like Toms and Natives, the new shop carries exclusive collaborations like J Shoes for Convert and a vegan Jeffrey Campbell for Convert line. If you’re in the Berkeley area, walk in to check out the new space on Fourth Street; it features thoughtful design elements like recycled cardboard shelving and vintage furniture. We’ll pretty sure you’ll walk out with a little inspiration — and a lot of style (especially if you pick up Jeffrey Campbell’s Regina shoe, on tap to arrive in June. Scroll down this page for a quick look).
