These guys tick all the right boxes, using upcycled and sustainable materials, including inner tubes, coconut fibre and cork. They publish their entire policy on ethical supply chains in black and white right on their website.
Isn’t that the sort of thing you want on your children’s feet? In case you’re not convinced, well, the designs are lovely.
And second, the prices are very reasonable. Top to bottom: Doodle, Â£30; Poodle, for toddlers, reduced at the time of writing to Â£21; and Doogie, Â£17.50. Add Â£4.50 for basic shipping.
