Banish sweat

The most fashionable new shoe on the market could make sweat a thing of the past. But this is not a scientific breakthrough in the quest to rid the world of smelly feet.

The world’s first fair-trade sneaker made without sweatshop labour is now on the market, sold by new company No Sweat Apparel. Each pair comes with a detailed fact sheet telling you exactly what wages and benefits the workers who produced the shoes at the union shop in Jakarta, Indonesia, get paid.
