I think my footsies are ready for a change. They’re tired of trudging around in cheap, uncomfortable shoes that last little more than a few months of steady wear in the heat and muck of summer activity. “Make better choices,” my feet seem to plead.

Alright, feet. You win. I’m ready to put my shoe money to better use. I’m on a mission to find cool, comfy summer shoes for all my warm weather styles. Good quality is a must. And they need to be friggin’ adorable. And while I’m willing to part with a little more change than I’m used to, these kicks can’t break the bank. Oh, and while I’m really thinking about how I spend my money here, I feel like they should probably be ethically produced.

Below are a few of my favorite finds from my search. I hope this rainbow of ethically produced shoes helps to brighten your summer. From bold wedges and polka-dot pumps to strappy sandals and neon sneakers, there’s a shoe here for every occasion. There’s also something here for nearly every budget, with pairs starting at $40. Whether you're looking for vegan, fair trade, handmade, upcycled, organic, made in the good ole USA, or just plain cute, you can lighten your conscience while you lighten your wallet with any one of these cool kicks.

NOHARM offers cruelty-free non-leather footwear, clothing and accessories. All NOHARM footwear is crafted in Italy by artisans in fair labour environments.

Running outdoors is low impact and connects you with nature – both gold-star ethical activities. And yet the history of athletic shoes and the industry's business model mean that when you try and select a suitable shoe you enter a vortex of exploitation issues.

Yue Yuen, the planet's biggest trainer manufacturer and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) for Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Puma, Reebok and others, has pushed out 83.4m pairs in the past three months alone. But deconstruct the retail price (as Consumer International did in 2009) and you'll see that although the 150 processes needed to create a trainer make them one of the most labour-intensive items we own, just 0.4% of retail cost is spent on labour.

Some companies produce ethical trainers. There's Veja ( veja.fr ), which sources fairtrade components, the Ethletic shoe ( thefaircorp.com ), and Dutch ethical brand Isyou.com is working on a "unique sneaker" model, with shoes to be co-designed in developing nations with everyone involved receiving a fair share of proceeds. Sadly they don't produce proper running shoes.

This week, ethical shoe brand Po-Zu will unveil its Star Wars -themed footwear at the FFANY trade show in New York as part of a major collaboration with the movie franchise. It’s a highly significant launch for Po-Zu, as it will enable the UK-based manufacturer to bring its products to a wider market and raise public awareness over the ‘dark side’ of the shoe trade.

The footwear industry is not known for its ethical or environmental practices. Used shoes are a landfill magnet – one study suggests less than 5 percent of waste from post-consumer shoes is recycled. Material toxicity is also a concern, with leather shoes being particularly problematic: 85 percent of the world’s leather is thought to be tanned using chromium, which is considered one of the world’s worst pollutants .

There are questionable supply chain labour practices too, with many workers exploited for what is often considered a cheap commodity. According to a recent report from NGO Labour Behind the Label , just over 2 percent of the final price of a pair of shoes goes towards the wages of workers who manufactured them, whereas about a quarter of the price remains with the brand company and one-third with the retailer.
