My Shoes Collection with Nisolo | Fair Trade Shoes | Dearly Bethany

so over the last year I have shared my
outfits every single day on Instagram and one thing that I’ve really tried to
do during that time is to find artisans I absolutely love to find things that
people have handmade handcrafted and poured their love and like their
expertise into making something and then I love just being able to wear that all
day so that’s really why I’ve focused in on like brands that do this that aren’t
necessarily fast fashion like that are more crafted over generations one of my
favorite brands that has done this has been Nisolo
I hate pretty much only wearing Nisolo shoes because I’m just such a fan not
only of their practices but they just also just have amazing shoes they’re
really comfortable and they’re versatile for different types of outfits so this
is the brand that I want to start perhaps doing a video series on where I
just show like artisans where I show a feature brand that I’m really proud of
that I’m excited to be able to share with you guys and so I want to do this
like a “Feature Friday” it won’t be like every Friday but I definitely want to
kind of spearhead that direction and like bring more attention to brands that
you probably have never heard of if they’re even a brand at all sometimes it
might just be like an artist which would be so cool so let’s just get started so
I have 9 different pairs of shoes that I just want to run through really quick
they are all still for sale and they’re all linked down in the description below
it’s just amazing that they’re still for sale even some of my bought like well
over a year ago the first pair is the Dari boots I would say if you’re gonna
get one pair of shoes that these ones will last through most seasons in most
weather and can be worn in different like I’ve worn this with a long vintage
Dior skirt and I’ve worn them with shorts so you can do just different
things with this so these Dari boots are just a nude ankle boot and it’s got
zipper down the side it’s got a stacked leather heel and all of their sole
are very soft so whenever you try on their shoes just be sure that you use
like a carpeted surface so that like no wear and tear happens in case you need
to exchange sizes or anything I also like that all of these are there’s no
like plastic or anything underneath like let me just tell you I’ve got these
Camilla slides any pair of slides that I’ve ever worn they all get a little
scuffed up on the top including these ones but what drives me nuts with other
pairs of slides is that if it’s not made like really with real fabrics inside it
then right here where it’s scuffing you would normally see like white you know
whatever material they made the inside with always shows but with these it’s
just like you can tell if it’s cuffs there’s still just the same material
inside it same color everything like no one unless they came in really close
would even notice that my slides are a little scuffed so these ones these
Camilla slides are six and a half the Dari boots are a size 7 so I went a
little bit up in those just in case I wanted to wear socks I really like like
six-and-a-half is my true size I liked it that it wasn’t like too tight on me
or anything they’re just very comfortable I feel like slippers let’s
say all of these really feel like slippers so that’s really fun so next I
got some Ava ballerina flats I got a couple of colors so one is the tan and
this one I got originally it’s got a little bit more wear and tear because
I’ve had it so long this is the beige so both are six and a half I’ll put all of
my sizes down below so you guys can see it I won’t true to size on these because
if they were too big they would just slip off my ankle if they were too tight
you know that wouldn’t be great either they do stretch a little bit so you
might notice that they come a little bit tight they might feel tight when you
first get them but they do stretch out it’s leather yeah I just love that the
pointed toe gives me a little bit more height it visually looks like I’m I’m
taller than I am when I wear that in fact in my last video I was wearing
these because they do help me look taller and that’s what that whole video
is about so this next pair is one of the first shoes from the solo that I ever
got which is the Mariella mule is still in pretty good condition
naturally you’re gonna have a little bit of wear over here on the side but these
ones are over yeah you’re in maybe a year and a half was about when I got
that a year and a half ago so I do take a little bit of like a like a damp cloth
and I just rub down the the inside insoles and then I do take like a nubuck
leather cleaner to the outside give it a good clean sometimes just for record but
these are holding up really good I’m so happy with them I got them true to size
you know again a nude shoe just I just love the look of a nude shoe because it
just makes me look taller so I really try to reach for shoes like that but
after loving that pair so much I ended up getting a black pair as well this is
one of the only pairs of like leather shoes I have that is polished leather on
the outside I bought these pair it was around fall and so that really brought
me through fall and winter is when I especially wear this pair I like to wear
these with like just a light sock on for colder weather of course I live in
Virginia so and if I’m visiting Wisconsin this might not keep me as warm
but I you know where I live it makes sense to wear them in colder months so I
would say that the Mariellas are extremely comfortable especially because
they have a heel like they fit my foot really good it’s nice to have like a
little bit of a heel if I’m just not wanting to wear a full-on heel it’s just
very versatile very comfortable something I could wear all day at an
office so for days where I do want to wear a heel I love these Palomas I just
love that right here at the ball of my foot there’s actually a little bit more
cushion which I’ve never experienced from other no solo shoes so they’ve
really thought about that especially because this has like even more of a
heel than the others to have that extra cushion just makes such a difference I
also love the peep toe and it’s just kind of fun you know I don’t necessarily
like paint my toenails anymore is that weird but I just really love the look of
these they have a very like natural look to them and I just think that’s great if
I’m going to wear a heel kind of nice to have it more on the
neutral side anytime I’m wearing my Kamms like my Sailor pants I love to wear it
like a lot taller heel with them and so yeah I just think that that’s a really
great look so a couple more pairs these are my Alma’s I just think that this is
really great if you want like more of a leisurely look there’s no heel to them
really and they stay on my foot really well I mentioned these in my favorites
video just because like I’m really obsessed with them they just seem to go
I’ve said this a thousand times about all these shoes but they seem to go with
everything I love that they have a really unique like woven pattern on them
and they also have a darker insole so that means that they’re not gonna show
dirt as much I just really like them a lot they they have just such a unique
look I just love them so those ones are really great for like summertime I like
to wear them a lot with like shorts too that’s a really great look I got
inspired by that actually with Yoli and Otis is another great brand on their
model they always wear these shoes that look a lot like that love to wear that
for summer but another great heel that I like to wear for summertime this is my
newest parents my Sarita wedges so as a wedge it’s got this beautiful like wood
texture as well as this like raw leather look these ones are super comfortable
because there’s not much of an arch to them so it’s not like I’m walking in
heels all day if I wear these tight enough then I really do not have any
problem walking in them and also a bonus is that because I’m shorter one thing
that I always struggle with is like if I’m in an in an airplane or if I am in a
theater a lot of times I’ll get like pain in my knees because I’m studying
and like my feet don’t touch the floor so these ones will allow me to like sit
comfortably in a movie theater is what I’m really looking forward to this is
kind of a perk and I can really stand to have a little extra height sometime so
not opposed to that at all I also noticed that this is the first pair by
them that I’ve had that has like rubber and the
soles so that was kind of nice because then it allows you a little bit more
stability than otherwise you might have at that height I think it’s really
important so these ones like I had missed six and a half and then by the
way myomas I got in a six and a half as well pretty much everything I get in a
six and a half that’s pretty much it for my collection I think that all of these
they have their different purposes I’ve been really like selective with my shoes
so I’m selective about the brand once I find a really good brand I’m pretty
loyal so that’s why I have like the majority this is the majority of my
shoe collection in general I take care of my shoes with a few different
products let me just run through them really quick so this first one is a Kiwi express shine this is just a leather cleaner that just you know their
little wipes and I’m able to so just like any of my polish leather I can
touch them up or I use them on the insoles I can shine them up before I
actually polish or shine anything I use like a little cloth like this where I
can just get it damp and just make sure that there’s like no excess dirt on
anything so for a new buck it’s you know I’m really careful I don’t like to over
clean them or anything but after I make sure that there’s like no dirt around
any of the edges I use a suede and new buck cleaner I got this one years ago
from GH Bass & Co I actually got this for Zack but I pretty much use it now
myself so I will just take a little bit of foam from that and put it on this
little tiny brush scrub it in we’re really good like a lung all of the new
buck and then I just let it air dry then once the air dries then I take a little
buffer brush like this one and I just make sure that all of the suede is
brushed out to its original nap I also can use this one on my polished leather
stuff just see if I want to give it a little bit more of a buff or shine so I
can link these things down below but that’s pretty much my shoe collection
the intention behind it is that I want all of these pieces to be classics that
I can keep in my closet for a very long time I like to take care of them I think
that if like anything needs to go to the cobbler I would say
them to ye old cobbler and like get them fixed up so that’s kind of how I want to
take care and treat my clothes having a company like Nisolo the stuff that
they released last year is still for sale like it’s not like I’m going to buy
something and immediately it’s out of style like this stuff has been made for
generations and anytime that I can wear products that people take pride in like
I can feel that pride and I just feel like I’ve taken part in something a lot
of the craftsmen who make these like hand make these shoes they are I’ve
heard have kids that they’re sending to college for the first time in that whole
communities existence so you’re just providing a fair wage to everybody in
the company and I just love that I love to know like where my money is going so
anytime I can like find that out if companies are more transparent then I
definitely want to like take part in that so anyways I hope you guys have an
amazing Friday let me know if you like this as a series because I have plenty
of other people other companies that I would love to be able to feature like
for jewelry clothes anything like that so give this video a thumbs up and I
will see you guys on Monday I’ll see you then


  • Lovely as always❤️

  • Love your shoes collection. You bring life to those shoes?❤

  • Bethany, I don't understand how you only have 30k subscribers. You certainly deserve more.

    I love how you seek out ethical brands, artisan-produced products, and vintage clothing. It is something to admire.

  • Thank you so much for doing this video! I have the Nisolo Smoking Shoes, which are so gorgeous but pretty stiff so it's taking a while to break them in. I recently bought the Ama Mules after seeing you style it with so many cute outfits, and I LOVE them! They already feel so comfy and versatile. ??

  • You deserve so much subscribers,A new subscriber here,love your videos?

  • Unfortunately this brand doesnt ship internationally ☹

  • Hi! I love your coin necklaces ❤ and your shoes!

  • I love nisolo! I took a look at them and love their shoes. Sadly, they only ship to the us…(I'm European)

  • I love how your shoes are neutral colors and you can pair them with multiple outfits.

  • I’m loving your channel so far as we have some similarities… like same style, love the same shades and yeah same height! ???
    Subscribed! You’re so pretty btw!

  • We love your shoe collection! All of them are such good staples that you can wear with many different outfits! We would love to see the same but with winter/fall shoes!

  • Hey Bethany, by any chance do you have any non-leather shoes? I'd love to see a video on it. I've been looking to get good quality vegan shoes.

  • I just love the way she talks.. not sure if I was even paying attention to what she was saying.. if I ever meet her in person I'm simply gonna stare ?

  • yes, i absolutely love these as a series! i’m finally at the stage in my life where i want to invest more into my clothing, waste less, and have less. this would be infinitely helpful. ❤️

  • Please yes! More excellent ethical brands!

  • You're so beautiful ❤

  • You’re sweet and charming.❤️

  • This is great! I'm so picky about my shoes, I'm always looking for high quality, minimalist shoes! I literally have been wearing my spring boots to work because I haven't been able to find anything. I literally just bought 3 pairs from Nisolo, awesome shoes that completely fit my aesthetic, and they're ethical on top of that, perfect.

  • Is your hair naturally like that?

  • I feel you on the feet not touching the floor on regular chairs. Lol 5'1 here as well. Shout out to short girls ❤

  • Cool… Thank you for sharing.

  • Ethical leather? How? How is taking animals` skin to make shoes ethical?

  • Just found your channel and I love it. I'm the same height and measurements so I love watching your hauls and style. This lets me see a lot of the clothes I want to purchase but scared how it would fit on someone like me who is on the smaller side, especially pant length. Nisolo shoes has always been an ad targeted to me on different sites and the shoes looked great so I checked out their website. The prices were also quite affordable for the quality. However, I must say they are not very inclusive to sizing. They start at 6 and above. I did a chat with them and asked about size 5 or a 5.5 as that is my shoe size and if they would be including this size in the future, and they flat out said, we won't be making those sizes because there's no money and no market for that size. Just letting your audience know that if your shoe size is smaller than a 6 it is not likely this company will be targeted for them, ever. Ethically made still has a bottom line. Bummer as I definitely would have supported the brand otherwise.

  • Hey! I just found your channel (I hate YouTube for only suggesting already huge accounts) and started following you for your styling tips, but this is so good. I'm a sustainable lifestyle blogger and love to see some nice ethical fashion. I look forward to see more of your content.
    Jandi Heart Eco

  • are you 6.5 usually in shoe sizes? because I am but they recommend going 1/2 a size up

  • I love those shoes – they are an investment, but if you have them for years, it's worth it. Can't tel you how many shoes I've given away because they just don't appeal to me after a season

  • New subscriber here! These ethical brands are awesome. Love this.

  • New subbie here! You are so gorgeous, I'm loving your style and content. I'm drooling over your shoes collection, pretty much my dream shoes collection. Keep up the good work, especially the feature fridays on ethical and sustainable brands. I've been trying to invest more in quality rather than fast fashion lately and your videos are very helpful. Thank you!

  • I've heard of Nisolo for awhile but didn't know about the quality! Will definitely try a pair next time I'm in the market 🙂

  • I'm just gonna stick in my bed and cry cuz Nisolo doesn't ship to my country….

  • I know that you did this to feature Nisolo. What a neat brand! I’m looking to downsize my show collection. I’d love for you to do a video showing some classic styles that most women should own. I’m having trouble figuring out what to part with!! ?

  • I like it ??

  • I love watching your videos as I'm myself 5' 1" but I feel very short when I wear flats so I always wear or but something which has got a little heel to it.

  • So sad I’m a size 5/5.5 🙁

  • you should check out alexandra wills, she handmakes shoes that are incredible !!!

  • I've been following them on Instagram for a while and love their designs. Unfortunately they don't ship outside the U.S.

  • loved this video! please walk us through some more brands. also, are there any lower cost brands that you're a fan of?

  • The shoes look beautiful and I admire the brand, but I can't imagine myself walking mostly in shoes with such thin soles!

  • i loveeee you and your videos! I am also so curious as to what you wear for formal events! (:

  • Nisolo doesn't make shoes in my size (US 5/EU 35). So sad ?

  • This video inspired me to purchase my first pair! Can not wait to try out the Mariella Mules 🙂 I love the silhouette of the Dari boot, but I am already 5’10” and they would make me a giant, but they look gorgeous on you!

  • Loved your shoe collection as well as sharing you cleaning method!!! Gracias ??
    Please share your clothing/shoe organization in a future video.

  • Loyal subscriber here now. Your style is my style. Also, I like that you're featuring ethical companies. Kudos!

  • so elegent, i wnat to see you wear js shoes. i think i be your fans

  • Love your style, you really put your personality in it (calm, sweet, soft, simple) <3

  • Yes, but do they have good support?

  • Hi! I just discovered your channel and subscribed. I love your style and thanks for introducing us to Nisolo – I love their simple elegant style. Unfortunately, I wear size 5US 🙁

  • Great video, Beth. Just a tip, next time you make a shoe lookbook, use shorts or something with mid lenght, because your pants sort of hid or shaded the shoes in this video. Xoxo.

  • I feel you! Being 5' ft myself, I can really relate to what you said about "on the plane or theatre, my knee will hurt because I cannot touch the floor." hahaha that's cute. 🙂 Love your videos.

  • If you didn't have your measurements in the description, I would have never known that you were the same height as me!!! You're truly an illusion to the eye.

  • M from india…N I didn't get exact what u have where n show us….

  • How about a bags that you own? ^_^ that would be a nice video to see since we all carry bags everyday

  • Quality always beats quantity

  • Can you make a video about fair trade ethical brands? I want to shop sustainably but dk where to start. Love your vids btw!

  • Can you make an accessories video and how to pair them with the outfit?

  • Are the clothes shown in your Instagram photos included in your capsule wardrobe? If so, please do an updated capsule to include these items. ?

  • How can leather be ethical 🙁

  • Your channel is so calming to watch ???

  • As someone from Wisconsin, when you said you wore the mules in the winter I was momentarily taken aback.

  • Been watching your videos a lot. Love them. And i just wanna say, many times my feet don't touch the floor too when i am seating. ?

  • I absolutely love your channel and your style. If anyone is interested in shopping from sustainable & ethical brands you should definitely check out our website @t There you will find a wide variety of eco and people friendly brands to buy from.

  • Bethany – would you wear socks with mule? If so, how would you wear it? Also, between a mule, a flat, and kitten heels, and I can only get one out of 3, which one should I get for versatility? Does stone/ natural color shoes from Everlane work as well as a skin tan color one? 🙂
    Thank you!

  • great video! it is strange that you still wear makeup but only do natural toes, i still think its great either way!

  • Great video! I love what Nisolo has been building here in Nashville!

  • What kinda of nail polish are you wearing?

  • Thank you for the great video. This is a cool site with lots of minimalist shoes

  • Hi Bethany, do you add sole savers or the metal toe taps? I purchased my first Nisolos (leather sole). (I live in NYC.)

  • Why don't you have your emma dorsays anymore?

  • Thank you for the video. Here is a informative site with lots of minimalist shoes

  • I feel you about the knee pain thing! Being petite in a world where nearly every seat is made for someone a lot taller can be a bummer sometimes…

  • Marrón y negro todos?

  • I LOVE your vids and follow your Instagram religiously but these brands are clothes I’d need to invest in. Everlane is fine, it’s affordable, but gurl jesskam and the other ones have me crying
    It’s worth it, though. I can see how versatile each piece is so it’s a great deal.

  • You're way of featuring just amazing Dearly.
    You're choice for brands are elegant.

  • You don't wear sneakers..?

  • Can you pull out your closet and drawers and just show us every piece and put them away lol. I would watch it even if it’s a 5 hour video. Just saying

  • Okay… you are so precious

  • 2019 update please

  • I L?ve You.

  • You need to make a new video update on your shoes ?
