Krochet Kids International helps impoverished people throughout the world by teaching communities how to make products ranging from bowties to hats with a hook and yarn technique. The crochet detailing on the shoes from the Van's collaboration are all hand-woven by artisans in Uganda, and each pair comes with a hand-signed tag. You can even find your artisan's profile online and connect with the woman who worked on your flats! They are available in two styles online at Nordstrom.
