Two New Flip-Flop Styles
from Common Soles
Shortly following a successful launch this past August, Common Soles LLC, is now announcing the release of two new styles of flip-flops. The sales of these two new styles will generate funding to support education in the region of India in which they were crafted.
Common Soles partnered with
the folks at a footwear factory in Vijayawada, India to
source materials for the two new styles from local vendors.
Common Soles sources all materials local to the factory so
as to eliminate and/or reduce the shipping of components
that results in unnecessary resource consumption. Common
Soles is also using natural jute in the strapping for the
men's Aiman Fezz flip-flop and sari print fabric for the
strapping of the women's Natya flip-flop.
5% of the selling price of each pair will be dedicated to
funding education at an all girls school in Purchuru.
The two new styles, along with the company's first flip-flop, can be viewed online at the Common Soles website: http://commonsoles.com. Further detail on the initiatives funded via the sale of Common Soles flip-flops can also be found on the company's website.
Common Soles LLC, was founded in 2009 in Wellesley, MA by
Dave Mesicek and Rao Naraharasetty as a brand of footwear
that exists as a means to generate funding to support
community improvement initiatives in manufacturing
communities around the globe. Additionally, Common Soles
will bring innovation and transparency to the footwear
supply chain through making the direct connection between
