Heel In And Invest In Healin' Rain Boots
Want to make a chic splash during rainy days and give poverty a boot? A pair of Roma all-weather rain boots might be just what you are looking for. If you haven’t heard of Roma boots, this post will introduce you to the company’s background, their mission, meaning behind their name and their products.
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Roma was launched in 2010 by a Romanian born entrepreneur, Samuel Bistrian, who wanted to help out children in his home country by fusing his love for fashion and philanthropy together. Roma means amor and amor means love (in spanish). Roma is a unique boot company that combines fashion with philanthropy. For every Roma boots sold, a new one stuffed with educational supplies is donated to a child in need. Roma’s mission is “giving poverty the boot” by bringing hope, love and lasting change in the lives of children from around the world through aid and education. Also, Ten percent of all the sales proceeds goes to the Roma For All foundation to help impoverished children break out this cycle of poverty and despair so they can feel empowered to contribute their talents and gifts to the society.
Roma is a boot company and they make all-weather rain boots and flip flops. Their rain boots not only look stylish and chic, but they are made out of natural sustainable materials. The outer part of the boots is made from 100% natural rubber and the inner lining is made from quick dry knitted cotton. Their boots come in sustainable and cute packaging. Here is a video of their retail presentation that’ll give you a good idea about their collection, design details, packaging, mission and more.
I’ve had Roma rain boots for about a year now and I absolutely love them (have worn them through out winter and spring). They are simple, clean and sophisticated. They come in many colors, lengths, details and finishes; they even make limited edition artistic prints for the collector minded. I love the fact that these boots not only look great and are of high quality, but also the fact that they are made out of natural sustainable materials and support a bigger philantrophic mission. I believe in the concept of helping people help themselves so the idea of investing in education to give poverty a boot makes a lot of sense to me. If you are looking for a great pair of rain boots made out of natural materials and also want to give back to the society in some way, Roma boots might be a perfect choice.
I love the company’s mission, meaning behind their name and their products. Hope you’ll be inspired to try their rain boots and join in on their mission to give poverty a boot. 🙂
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
