With all of the eco-friendly goods and products in the marketplace, shoes might be the last thing you think of as “green,” but Atlanta-based Julie Bee’s is changing that notion.

Launched in 2012, Julie Bee’s offers women a comfortable shoe that is still stylish and environmentally friendly. Constructed with ecologically sustainable leathers and vintage pieces, Julie Bee’s offers customers a selection of wedges, flats, and heels which founder Julie Brown says so comfortable that, “people do not realize that are even wearing them.”

After realizing that women’s footwear is made with little regard to the environment, Brown decided it was time to provide shoes made in an American facility that supported sustainable processes, which ultimately limits the company and the individual’s carbon footprint.

By using leather that is vegetable-dyed and reclaimed vintage pieces, Julie Bee’s is able to eliminate the use of harsh chemicals and give new life to shoes and goods that would have eventually been discarded.

The new spring collection is available online at and styles range from the casual to the dressy. The heels designed with higher backs offer more support and are perfect for a day at the office and for an after work meet up.

With most styles available in sizes 6 to 11 and ranging from $295 to $375, the eco-chic line of footwear is perfect for styling women consciously with the future in mind.
