I'm a big fan of Chipkos and their awesome, eco-friendly sandals.   Chipkos Footwear is an eco-friendly footwear company that protects one hundred square feet of the rain forest per product purchased. Chipkos is most well known for their Chipkos Original Sandals available for men and women.

I first came across Chipkos back in April and I was immediately drawn to the unique look of their sandals, the green materials that they use, and their dedication to saving the rainforest.  Now, I am excited to finally being reviewing the sandals!

When I first began wearing them, the bottom part felt very comfortable - a true testament to these sandals, because I have flat, achy feet and flip-flops often don't feel good on my feet.  These sandals offered more arch support than most flip-flops.  I was able to walk for a few miles in them with my arches still feeling good. 

Unfortunately, as I wore them more frequently, the straps began chafing my feet.  It was a bit painful at first, but after about a day, the material stopped irritating my feet and they became the most comfortable flip-flops in my somewhat vast collection.  

The sandals are vegan, made with recycled materials, and each Chipkos purchase results in the adoption of rain forest!  

I'm really enjoying my Chipkos...but alas, winter is around the corner and here in New England it will be a few months until I can bring out the Chipkos again! Just another reason to look forward to spring, I suppose... :-)

Don't forget, Chipkos is offering a 15% discount for Keen For Green readers until February!
