This week please join Frankie Picasso on The Good Radio Network this Thursday, January 22 at 1:00 pm est.when her guest is Mauricio Laniado, Founder of Juntos Shoes, a social fashion company whose motto is Look Good, Do Good!
Mauricio is a young social entrepreneur who has reached back to his heritage and taken the lowly El Zapato de Lona, the Ecuadorian street shoe , worn by the working class in cities like Guayaquil, Ecuador ( where he was born) and turned it into a fashion statement for all. This shoe is an iconic part of the Ecuadoran landscape - part functional necessity, part social signifier.
Juntos embraces this heritage and brings it to you, refining and repurposing the design while preserving everything that makes the shoe, the shoe.
That’s why there is a map of Ecuador on the inside of every pair, so one never forgets where they came from.
It’s also why for every pair sold, Juntos donates an education pack filled with crucial school supplies to a local child in Ecuador –as a small way of giving back to the places wherehe found inspiration. So far 1000 packs have been given out to students. The bright yellow bag with the Juntos logo is also funtional as well as beautiful.
I don't think we have anything to worry about if our future includes young Entrepreneuers like Mauricio Lanidades.
For Mauricio and his company..that is what they call- a real ethical footprint.

We will take an in-depth look at the on going craze for the Michael Jordan sneakers by Nike. Have these sneakers become a driving force for how people define themselves? As well, as to the extent to which one will go to obtain such shoes.
History of Footwear
Footwear refers to garments worn on the feet, for fashion, protection against the environment, and adornment. Some cultures chose not to wear footwear, at least in some situations.
Socks and other hosiery are typically worn between the feet and other footwear, less often with sandals or flip flops (thongs). Footwear is sometimes the subject of sexual fetishism, such as shoe fetishism or boot fetishism.
Durable shoes are a relatively recent invention, though many ancient civilizations wore ornamental footwear. Many ancient civilizations saw no need for footwear. The Romans saw clothing and footwear as signs of power and status in society, and most Romans wore footwear, while slaves and peasants remained barefoot. The Middle Ages saw the rise of high-heeled shoes, also associated with power, and the desire to look larger than life, and artwork from that period often depicts bare feet as a symbol of poverty. Bare feet are also seen as a sign of humility and respect, and adherents of many religions worship or mourn while barefoot, or remove their shoes as a sign of respect towards someone of higher standing.
In some cultures, people remove their shoes before entering a home. Some religious communities require people to remove shoes before they enter holy buildings, such as temples.
Practitioners of the craft of shoemaking are called shoemakers, cobblers, or cordwainers.
It may be an understatement to describe Donna Voss’s life experience as eclectic.
She is a Berkeley grad, a stay-at-home mom, a former pagan, and a devout Mormon.
Clearly a study in extremes, she is a fifty-something homemaker who loves rap music, outrageously expensive shoes, and people who own their flaws and call her on hers.
She is avoids negotiating the price of anything but will dive into intense interactions, especially if they are about politics and religion. Raised in the shadow of luxury, her favorite vacation is camping. She is an eternal optimist who is endlessly fascinated by the dark side of good people. Anxious to be liked by all, she has written a memoir, One of Everything, that is sure to provoke everyone about something.
