It is SO important (to me personally) that I design shoes I can wear from sunrise to sunset. I want to walk my dog in the morning to grab a coffee, run from meeting to meeting, and slide into a yoga class in the same style all day long.
I have tested these shoes to ensure their longevity, durability and comfortability in a variety of destinations because I understand every woman has a different set of priorities. From off-duty elegance that suits an office environment, to running around a playground with energetic children, these shoes have been designed for you to live your best, hectic, adventurous life!
The Lost Sols name was manifested from years of trying and testing many careers. Searching for that passion that would wake me up in the morning and fill my dreams at night.
People would roll their eyes at me, wondering when I would ever settle down and commit to something. What they didn’t realise was (as I navigated the way through my twenties) I was looking for a purpose that not only set my soul on fire, but gave back to protect the planet.
I would continuously think to myself: I don’t fit in here, I am a lost soul.
We are now in a technological age where we can dream bigger, think outside the box and use materials we could never have dreamt of using before. With this in mind, we feel very strongly about creating classic styles and not seasonal trends. It is a must that all our designs are developed ethically from eco-friendly, recycled, vegan materials.
These have less of an impact on the environment, from manufacturing to purchasing.
To further this goal we have also aligned with One Tree Planted, and for every pair of shoes sold, we will plant a pair of trees around the world to assist in reforestation.
Australia is one of the biggest consumers of fast fashion, 85% of our unloved clothing can fill the Sydney Harbour Bridge annually. Most of these items have only been in our wardrobe for six months. This means Australia discards up to 935kg of clothing every minute.
The sad fact is that 95% of these textile materials can be recycled.
We provide a modern alternative to reuse our waste for a contemporary purpose.
