Irregular Times: A Tale of Two Sneakers

I’ve been meaning to mention the No Sweat sneakers for some time. While Adbuster’s “Black Spot” sneaker may never see the light of day, you can already pick up a pair union manufactured kicks.

I like the idea of using union labor in foreign countries to both bring jobs to developing nations and to ethically manufacture materials (and likely still for a lower price than using U.S. labor).

I’d like to see some edgier Puma-esque designs available. Also, No Sweat offers an entire line of union made clothing, but their stuff’s not very stylish.
