As many of you know, BioWorld Footwear has been a long time sponsor of Nourishing Joy. We are so grateful for their on-going support! Since our focus is on sustainable living options as well as real food and intentional parenting, we've loved having a sustainable shoe company on board.
Their ads have been ubiquitous around the site and our news feeds for nearly a year, yet this week as I was talking about running a sale with the woman who runs the company (and who just happens to be my sister), I realized I've been negligent in not introducing their shoes…

All the shoes are handcrafted by a fourth-generation artisan in Spain. He has developed BioWorld based on the concept of enhancing the health of the natural world (through the use of environmentally sensitive materials) as well as the health of the wearer (through the use of chemical-free materials and an anatomic footbed that encourages a healthy gait and posture).
A heavy emphasis is placed on sourcing environmentally responsible materials. The footbeds are constructed of jute, latex, and sustainably harvested cork. All leather used in the uppers is sourced from Spain and is vegetable-tanned and -dyed. Vegan models are also available, which use an Italian microfiber called Lorica in place of leather.
I myself basically live in a pair of BioWorld's signature Caracola shoes. They take about two weeks to “break in” because of the firm support they give the foot, but once they're shaped to your foot, they are as comfortable as going barefoot.
