Paris Shoes - bensimon

You can always spot an American tourist in Europe by their shoes. Europeans have fantastic style in general (most of the little kids in Paris were dressed better than me), but they have particularly good taste in shoes.
I picked up a pair of these simple sneakers at a Bensimon boutique in the Marais neighborhood in Paris. I love how light and seamless they are. They look especially cute with shorts.
To be honest, I haven't been able to find conclusive information about Bensimon's environmental or labor practices. This online boutique carries them and they claim certain standards. And they have a US outlet that reveals some of the company's history here.
