Scarabeus Vegan Oxford
Whether pounding the pavement, burning up the dance floor, or sitting at a desk, Insecta's classic Oxford shoes are indeed all things to everyone: flexible, supportive, and astonishingly ecosexy. These Oxfords are designed with simplicity and comfort in mind, and a sustainable ethos to boot: they’re lovingly made with recycled plastic bottles in gorgeously exclusive patterns! Insecta shoes are unisex, so anyone can wear ‘em! They are extra comfy thanks to their beehive-patterned insoles made from our fabric scraps.
- Sustainably conceived, with recycled rubber soles, so you can walk easy.
- Available in Dama da noite.
- Made with love in Brazil.
When asked if we would ever have our clothing made overseas, we categorically said no. In the beginning, Jennifer made everything by hand in the back of her shop, loving the contact with clients and refining her skills. Now that the business has grown, we’re proud to say that Jennifer Glasgow clothing is still made right here in Montreal! Our close knit circle of factories are all woman-owned. Chenda, Sina and Miu, with their teams, have produced every stitch for over 10 years. Keeping our production in Canada helps us control the quality of our goods and reduces our carbon footprint.
