Publisher's Synopsis

From the author of STITCHED UP: 'Makes a strong case for nothing less than a revolution' Emma Watson

'A superb primer on everything that is wrong with our world - and how we can start to change it' NEW INTERNATIONALIST

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR SHOES COME FROM?

DO YOU KNOW WHERE THEY GO WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH THEM?

In 2018, 66.3 million pairs of shoes were manufactured across the world every single day. They have never been cheaper to buy, and we have never been more convinced that we need to buy them. Yet their cost to the planet has never been greater.

In this urgent, passionately argued book, Tansy E. Hoskins opens our eyes to the dark origins of the shoes on our feet. Taking us deep into the heart of an industry that is exploiting workers and deceiving consumers, we begin to understand that if we don't act fast, this humble household object will take us to the point of no return.
