The Hottest Shoes of the Summer Are Sustainable

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

The hottest shoes of the summer is none other than a pair of sustainable sneakers! And they are so hot that they can’t stay in stock for longer than a few days at a time! The popular eco-friendly sneaker is back, thankfully. Cariuma’s best-selling OCA Low sneaker is so popular that it’s got a pretty long waitlist. The comfortable low-top sneaker is made from sustainably sourced cotton canvas and has amassed a waitlist of more than 8,000 people prior to its restock in spring 2020. But those waiting have some good news: five new colors of the top-rated sneaker are officially available for pre-order! Expected shipment dates in mid-August. These sneakers are part of Cariuma’s long-time partnership with Pantone.
