Abbot's Shoes was created as a solution to this problem.
By bringing together like-minded consumers we help to extend the lifespan of Goodyear welted shoes. Along the way we have bought and sold over 1500+ pairs of shoes that may have otherwise been gathering dust. We hope to give our customers the opportunity to wear some of the world’s finest shoes at a more affordable price point and to give sellers the chance to cash in on shoes that may not be getting the wear they deserve.
Did you know leather shoes are a major source of carbon emissions?
The manufacturing of leather shoes accounts for a quarter of global footwear production, but up to 80% of its environmental impact. The lack of high-quality and eco-friendly materials that can stand in for leather means it is important to make full use of leather goods. Wearing leather shoes for just 9 extra months, instead of buying a new pair, can drastically reduce the carbon, water and waste footprint by up to 30%.
Abbot’s Shoes supports sustainable fashion and is committed to reducing its impact on the environment.
