They speak for themselves
"I just received my Lili Mules today and they were exactly as I hoped they would be. They are very well made. The leather is amazing and the shoes were comfortable from the minute I put them on."
"They have already begun to form to my feet. The leather is high quality and feels supportive. There is good padding in the insoles and the right amount of room in both the arch and the toe box. I am so pleased I can't recommend them enough!"
"I hesitate when buying shoes online... but the team at TRC was so helpful! They responded to my email of questions. My Shelley Sandals arrived and I love them! Soft leather, comfortable, and just what I was hoping for for summer!"
I'm so glad you're here. I started The Root Collective out of a deep desire to see our world be a better place. I had spent some time in a slum community in Guatemala and realized one simple fact:
Every single parent deserves the dignity to take care of their family.
Then I realized another simple fact:
Consumers are the most powerful people in the world.
I came to understand that you and me could make the world a better place simply by how we shopped. We could choose to spend our money with companies who paid workers a fair wage for fair work. People like Elizabeth, Carlos, and Isabel (who are just a few of our makers).
How crazy awesome is that? We think that something so beautiful can come out of something as simple as a pair of shoes or a bag. It can mean a mom can put food on the table. It can mean a dad can send his kids to school. And it can mean that you and I have something beautiful to wear with an incredible story in return.
I'm so glad you're a part of our family now.
