I think that converse is owned by nike who use child slave labor in poor countries,
as far as animal products in the actual shoe i dont think so, apart from leather ones, but cruelty- maybe not to animals but probably to humans...
forgot to mention the alternative! No Sweat Sneakers! http://www.etiko.com.au/sneakers-sale/no-sweat-sneakers/w1/i1004272_1003799/
i havent bought them myself, you can also get them in shops
Holy crap! I didnt they were owned by Nike.. I guess il just respect the design from now on.. I wont buy anymore.. That said that Etiko brand is NICE! and cheap!! Im going to go explore to site.. Thankyou so much!!!!
