  • Nisolo is a socially responsible footwear startup that sells high-quality leather goods for prices you can actually afford.
  • I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect chukka boots for women for a while now, and after getting Nisolo’s Isa Boots to test out, I think the search is over.
  • The boots are comfortable, stylish, cut off at just the right spot, and didn’t give me any blisters, even when I expected a “break-in period”.
  • The Isa Boots retail at $ 198 and frequently sell out in one or more of their four colors.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect women’s chukka boots for almost a year now, and, recently, the socially responsible footwear startup Nisolo sent me a pair of their best-selling Isa boots that I’d been seeing all over my Instagram feed — a style best described as an updated take on the chukka.

Founded in 2011 by Patrick Woodyard and Zoe Cleary, Nisolo aims to make timeless, high-quality designs that you can wear every day. But what sets this company apart, aside from their excellent designs and premium materials, is that they don’t require either the company or the shopper to make compromises on integrity. As a rule, the company uses leathers sourced from tanneries committed to the ethical treatment of animals, implements eco-friendly waste disposal systems, and ensures fair wages, healthcare, and healthy working environments for their employees in Peru, Mexico, and Kenya. The average salary of a Nisolo worker is 27% higher than Fair Trade wage requirements. In Peru, specifically, the women Nisolo employs have seen an average annual income increase of 126%, which is more than double what they made at their previous places of work.
