100% Cotton Canvas Hi-tops inspired by traditional, indigenous woven-art – technically these come in women’s sizes, so if you are a Men’s 10(US) and under, you’ll be fine with size conversion. Otherwise, for guy like me with size 12, these are not for you. I am showing a few of the styles that do not have wool products in them.
Dudes can be feminists. KEEP’s new hi-tops pay homage to age-old traditions and the handiwork of women everywhere. Stripes abound in woven Mayan fabric straight out of the highlands of Guatemala and hand quilted morning star pieces light the way on our latest Guerra offerings. Tip your hat to the labor of ladies around the world, sit back and get inspired. 100% cotton canvas. Molded rubber sole.
DBs Etiquette Recommendation: Many people believe that harvesting wool does not involve any cruelty. A few of the styles do utilize wool. For info on why not to support products made from wool, click here.

Our Friend Chloe Jo at the Girlie Girl Army pointed out the Polladium Boot at palladiumshoes.com.
These boots were created in the 40′s by the Foreign Legion. They are simple, machine-washable, and look great with a pair of jeans. Canvas is most commonly made from cotton, but it used to be made from hemp. The word canvas is derived from the Latin word for cannabis — hemp!
