Over 8% of total global greenhouse gas emissions are produced by the apparel and footwear industry. Plastic microfibers from shoes and clothing shed into the water account for 85% of the human made material found along ocean shores, threatening marine wildlife and ending up in our food supply.

The apparel industry, mostly made up of women, is linked with both child and forced labor. The workers receive only .5% of the final retail cost of the shoes made.
The integrity of our brand:
Sustainability: Our expanding line of interchangeable shoes allow you to enjoy a pair of quality shoes longer, season after season, from one occasion to the next without being wasteful. Our shoes allow customers to buy less and enjoy more! They are easy to pack in a suitcase and store in your closet. They are affordable and very versatile.
We also help the charity, www.soles4souls.org , wear out poverty all over the world and provide proper footwear for children and families in need. In•a•grüv is in charge of the 25K Long Island shoe drive! For more information on how you can donate to this wonderful cause and help wear out poverty domestically and globally, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This mission started in 2012 when the founder of the company began donating over a thousand pairs of shoes to the organization with her students.
Materials: Our interchangeable shoes allow for more use and less waste, which is great for the environment!
We have sourced a family owned footwear manufacturer in Brazil to guarantee our shoes are ethically made and top quality.
Our new shoe accessories are also made responsibly in Brooklyn, NY.
