The Eco-Ariel is a classic double-strap sandal with tear-drop perforations. The upper ankle strap has a modern hook-and-loop closure for easy on and off, while the lower strap stays classic with a traditional buckle closure. Water-friendly uppers and footbeds along with corrosion resistant buckles make the Ariel a great addition to any summer activity.

Every foot is unique and every brand utilizes different shoe specifications when making their shoes. Thus, there is no single or "perfect" measuring device for all footwear brands. Trying the shoes on is still the only way to truly know if you have selected the correct size with the proper "growing room" for the shoe you are purchasing. With this in mind, and utilizing our decades long experience with fitting children we have developed this unique sizing tool.
The Footmates® "Sustainability Project" showcases our continuing efforts to create the highest quality children's footwear while reducing our products environmental impact.
"Sustainability Project" items will be marked with a special identifying hang-tag and we are confident that they will be the best Footmates® shoes that you have ever purchased!
Footmates® is very proud to be able to offer, beginning in Spring 2022, our first selection of “Sustainability Project” footwear.
These select items have been produced with our Project’s “Guiding Principles” in mind, and are the culmination of all of our internal research and discussions with our production, sourcing, and design partners around ways to make our Footmates® products “more sustainable”.
These items are not perfect, but they are the start of what we know will be the future of all Footmates® products and what we believe will be the future of all footwear over time.
GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR THE FOOTMATES® “SUSTAINABILITY PROJECT”:
High quality footwear lasts longer and allows you to purchase LESS shoes over time.
Consuming less is the number one way to lower your carbon footprint and therefore lesson your environmental impact.
Recycled materials save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce waste to landfills, and prevent pollution associated with harvesting new raw materials.
Technologically advanced materials can provide superior performance and can be more animal and environmentally friendly.
Reducing the amount of materials used in products and packaging can lower the environmental impact.
Reuse provides an excellent, environmentally-preferred alternative to other waste management methods, because it reduces air, water and land pollution, limits the need for new natural resources, such as timber, petroleum, fibers and other materials, and conserves the limited space in our existing landfills.
