It’s time to start shopping for winter boots (or maybe you already have), and at Goods Unite Us we take both politics and shoe shopping seriously! So much so that we’ve made it our mission to empower shoppers with valuable information (for free) about the political donations of nearly 4,000 brands and companies.
With that in mind, what are the best shoe brands to spend your hard earned cash on if you want to help keep corporate money out of politics?
Below we’ve listed a few shoe brands and companies that have perfect Campaign Finance Reform Scores. A perfect CFR Score is 100, a score that means the brand or company and its senior leaders contribute very minimally to politicians and PACs or (better yet) don’t contribute at all. (If you want to know more about our scoring, you can read about it here).
Shoes and Boots With Perfect CRF Scores
Crocs: They’re perfect for around the house, and they’re also perfect if you don’t like corporate money in politics.
Adidas: Adidas is a stylish brand, and now we like them even more. The company also owns Reebok (great news for Crossfitters) and Rockport (we don’t know who wears these).
Louis Vuitton: Louis Vuitton is owned by LVMH, who also owns Emilio Pucci, Givenchy, Berluti, Celine and Giorgio Armani. Praise fashion sneakers!
Salomon: Salomon is owned by Amer Sports, which has a CFR Score of 100. They’re slightly more functional than fashion sneakers but equally stylish (sometimes).
DSW: This giant shoe store has a CFR Score of 100. And so do Famous Footwear and Five Ten Footwear.
