This evening I stepped into the Roots store in the Rideau Centre and confirmed that it does indeed sell environmentally-friendly shoes made by Simple Shoes. I posted a few days ago about my saga of buying Simple Shoes from an on-line U.S. store. Well, now I know I can buy them right here in Ottawa. However, they do not carry the particular style that I bought on-line (and which is shown in the photograph for that blog post). Instead they carry the ecoSNEAKS for men and for women.
I assume that other Roots stores across Canada also carry Simple Shoes, but if you’re making a special trip I suggest you call ahead, just in case.
Roots, Rideau Centre, 50 Rideau Street, Suite 247, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 9J7, (613) 236-7760
