IndoSole Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}


It's May, already?! I just can't believe it! I haven't been doing very well on consistency of my posts, but I plan on change that this month! So, expect to see a lot more in this space ;)

Anyways… I am so excited to share with you this amazing review & giveaway! IndoSole is creating revolutionary products that repurpose tires and bring them a new life. They are determined to save one million tires from Indonesian landfills! For every two pairs of sandals sold, one tire is saved.
I love the story behind IndoSole and just have to share it:
The idea for Indosole was conceived on a surf trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2004. A couple of young Californians were struck by the environmental issues faced by Indonesians, and inspired by an unusual pair of sandals they found there. By combining these two things, they created a unique solution to the problem of pollution in Indonesia in the form of a product that was both fashionable and functional.
RE-PURPOSE:
With “Re-purposed” products, Indosole offers the most organic, toxic free and environmentally sustainable production process. There is no melting down, off gassing, or reforming of any material—just strong hands and minds.
RE-IMAGINE:
“Repurposing” is an art of transformation. We learned this from our commitment to the local Balinese crafts people, the wise and resourceful artisans who taught us that waste could be reimagined, transformed into something purposeful. Through our strong relationship, we have saved thousands of tires from overflowing and overcrowded Indonesian landfills. And the thing is, we’ve only started to get our hands dirty. The more tires we save means a lower production of tire-derived fuel on the island, less landfills; and also, more shoes, more ideas, and an all together healthier way of living.


RE-BIRTH:
To enhance every aspect of your life, Indosole uses only locally sourced and animal free materials during its transformation of waste into fashionable and functional items. It is our dream to provide you with footwear that not only eliminates waste, but also, can give it a new life. Please join us on our quest to save 1 million waste tires from Indonesian landfills.

I am super impressed with IndoSole's commitment to sustainability. On their website they even have a "tire ticker" so you can see their progress in their goal of saving one million waste tires from Indonesian landfills!
 Their shoes are extremely stylish and I just LOVE that they are made from old tires. For this review, I got the Banana Weave Sandals
These shoes retail for $44 USD and worldwide shipping is available. Free standard shipping for all U.S orders! IndoSole explains:
All natural banana leaves are dried then hand woven into sandal uppers. This model is like a 72' Honda motorbike, designed for urban cruising.
*An Indo original - Roaming the streets since 2009*
  • 100% handcrafted with re-purposed tire sole
  • Nylon toe thong and wrapped mid-sole
  • EVA foam foot bed with arch support
  • 2MM Foam bed in the heel for extra comfort
  • 1.2 inch wide canvas straps
  • To ensure longevity, keep the natural weave dry
I absolutely LOVE these sandals and can't wait for this New England weather to get warmer! They will be perfect for summertime!
I love how they are handmade with banana leaves. I feel like so much love goes into each and every shoe! I adore the small "Hand Made in Bali Indonesia" tag on the inside of the strap, it adds such a lovely handmade touch!
I also love how thick the sole is, they are very durable and comfortable! I can't wait to break these in and make them my everyday shoe :)
IndoSole also offers mens shoes and sandals along with men & womans clothing!
