Given the "ethical" branding I expected these to be well-built, as the most sustainable, environment-conscious, ethical practise would be to make products constructed to outlast 'Fast Fashion' items, as manufacturing is the greatest drain on world resources and the most imminent threat to humanity.rnrnThey turned out to be flimsier, shoddier-built and less comfortable than even £6 knockoffs from SportsDirect (which are comparable to genuine Chucks in terms of durability, if not comfort).rnrnThis for £60 - £10 more than you'd pay for genuines! - another £10 and you could buy Chuck 70s, which would last longer even than regular converse! rnrnI've personally opted to stick to knockoffs, because you can get 2 pairs for £12-16 which will last longer worn alternately than one pair of converse/70s worn every day. And less money to flimsy shoe manufacturers!rnrnThe only other significant consideration is the 'fair trade/living wage' aspect, but considering the product ends up being comparable in quality to a £6 shoe, what percentage of that other £54 is going to those factory workers and rubber growers vs. the CEO's salary? Without any financial accounts it's all spiel, and even if it's above board - I mean, the shoe still needs to actually do the job. You can't walk to work on 'Solidarity'.rnrnFrankly baffled how Ethletic have continued to survive as a company.rnrnSpirit of Nature were very good on returns, full marks to them, but I wish they'd drop this brand.
