The Root Collective, an online shoe boutique, will soon bring its footwear to the Mosaic District.
Shoppers can find the shoes for one week at Fair Trade Winds (2905 District Avenue, Suite 125) starting tomorrow (Saturday).
The Root’s online offerings range from $98 flats to $228 boots. Its current “Pair of the Month” is the $228 Lee Boot in the color “chestnut.”
The shoes are ethically made in Guatemala, according to The Root Collective’s website, adding:
At The Root Collective, we partner with small, independent workshops because we believe that’s where the most impact in communities happen. Our goal is to support existing workshops that are run by local business owners… Steady and safe jobs are also fighting gang violence in Guatemala by giving young men and women an alternative to joining the gangs, which are rampant in many communities throughout the country.
The pop-up will run from May 4-12.
