'Fascinating and eye-opening' OWEN JONES

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.


AUTHOR: Tansy E. Hoskins is an author and journalist based in London. She can be found writing about the textile, clothing and footwear industries for the GUARDIAN, Al Jazeera, i-D, and THE i PAPER, or making TV documentaries. This work has taken her to Bangladesh, Kenya, Macedonia, and to the Topshop warehouses in Solihull. Her first book, the award winning STITCHED UP: THE ANTI-CAPITALIST BOOK OF FASHION was placed on Emma Watson's 'Ultimate Book List.'
