Yeah yeah call me a dumb beta neckbeard let for having ethics.

And when you're done with that: where can I cop a nice pair of shoes that weren't made by battered kids? Nike and Adidas seem to be the most commonly recommended shoes on this board, and while they are decent quality, I obviously have conflictions with their practices.

Owens is good but it's hard to cop for cheap
>>
Not sure about their standard stuff, but I'm guessing New Balance's Made In USA/UK ranges haven't seen a sweatshop
>>
You mean youre deliberately not going to buy a product made by world's poorest, who desperately need the income?

You insensitive bastard.

Every a bit higher up brands...

They'd be better off if the factories hadn't come there in the first place. We're just perpetuating this cycle of poverty by buying into it.

The factory jobs there provide higher wages than all their alternatives. How do you think the West industrialised? Magically transformed from a subsistence agricultural economy, to a high wage industrial economy?
>>
Just buy second hand. You can find a lot of NWT on ebay and such.

Countries of the global south cannot be allowed to develop any further than they have. This is their peak. It's what gives other affluent countries their high quality of life.

Doc martens, the vintage kind are mind in jolly ol England

I'm also after some shoes like this. Since you mentioned nike/adidas, I assume you're after some sneakers. Check out Victory Sportswear, made in the U.S. and nicer than NBs imo.

If you're just talking generally, most contemporary/mid-tier labels are sourcing in Europe. Common Projects, Our Legacy, etc.

Be wary of the "made in Europe" label though. It's hard to be sure. Some of these brands (cough cough Norse fuck you) are sourcing from Turkey which is technically a European country but uses a massive amount of immigrant, child, and (now) refugee labour.

The point is, it's not so black and white as people think. "Made in Europe" doesn't always mean you're getting what you're looking for. I don't want to go into the debate about labour, I'm just saying it is what it is.

ITT: /fa/ proves it knows next to dick about globalization. I think /pol/ may know more about fashion than this board.

Make sure to only buy goods made by white people in white countries. We wouldn't want to trade with brownies and chings!
