Blackspot is a rise to independence from mega-corporations.
100% Organic Hemp - Recycled Tire Sole - Union Made
Designed by Fluevog - Assembled in Portugual
We have had enough of corporations buying up the market and constraining us to product A and product B--when both serve corporation C. We want choices, not marketing campaigns. We want to support the local efforts of our neighbours, and choose their products: from the local bookstores, the local barbers, to the local grocers. These indie initiatives are putting themselves on the frontline against these mega-corporations, fighting million-dollar marketing campaigns, and for the mega-corps' dollar. Ready your Blackspots, and stand with us. Leave a Blackspot on the banks, the storefronts, and the offices of the automated mega-corporations, and signal the rise of a new indie, grassroots order.
By supporting our local friends and neighbours, we stop contributions to the mega-corporations' rapacious profiteering. You will spark a new Blackspot order: one of grassroots capitalism, and one free of mega-corp audacity.
This shoe is our Blackspot. Sustainably produced with recycled tire soles and organic hemp uppers, this shoe will leave a revolutionary footprint on the earth--and prevent mega-corps from leaving their carbon footprint. Best of all, it treads all over Nike's and Adidas's corporate "cool."
Our shoes are produced in Feluerias, Portugal, a locale steeped in 400 years of shoemaking craftsmanship, through a family-owned, unionized factory.
#BlackspotDay is coming May 7th.
