Product Review: Ombu Lifestyle Eco-friendly Shoes

Product Review + Giveaway: Ombu Lifestyle Eco-friendly shoes

Product: Ombu Lifestyle Eco-friendly shoes

Company: OMBU LifeStyle

About  Ombu lifestyle: Through their Eco-friendly shoes, Ombu Lifestyle achieves the most important goal of reforesting the planet. For every pair of shoes sold, they plant a tree and give away a tree seed, inviting you to be part of this new movement. If you are looking to give back while wearing something cool, trendy, free -spirited and relaxed, then OMBU shoes are for you!

The One Green Planet Verdict:

In one word, these shoes are “fun.” They look cool, are Eco-friendly and the company informed us that they do not use animal material in the fabrication of the shoe! The sole is made of “ecological leather,” which is a form of synthetic leather.

We reviewed the “Deep Purple” in women’s and the “Yute” style in men’s and liked both. The deep purple is casual, comfortable and great for everyday light use — you can slip them on and walk right out! The Yute style in men’s was our favorite — it’s super fashion-forward, very comfortable, and will add a splash of style to your casual wardrobe…. so sport it at your next summer party!

The company does not offer sizes above 10.

I actually really enjoyed wearing these shoes around town. As a NYC-er, two things are important to me: stylish appearance and comfort. They were a really cute light color with tiny white polka dots. It wasn't hard to find an outfit to pair them with because their simple clean look pretty much went with everything. I literally walked all over, and I was surprised that even though the shoes were "new" I didn't have to break them in first. I would suggest buying them! Though now that we are moving into winter, probably not the white pair.

I think OMBU Shoes in Circus SKA are so damn cool because they are purple and white, which matches BOTH my undergrad and graduate school colors, which means I'd be complimented on them all the time, which would lead into a discussion about their eco-friendliness. Perfect! Especially since my graduate work includes research into ecofeminism.

I think Ombu shoes in Yute are the coolest because they look like they're a nice neutral color that can go with lots of outfits and have a cool eco-hip look to them. I tweeted here https://twitter.com/cultofkale/status/229276651018653697
