Brave Soles was founded by Christal Earle who was also the founder of an international youth humanitarian organisation. As part of her role, she worked and learned from local landfill workers in the Dominican Republic and discovered the overwhelming number of thrown-out old tires.

Christal got the idea for making shoes from the tires in 2017. The collection includes sandals for women, men, and children. Brave Soles also makes accessories for travel such as luggage tags, passport holders, and messenger bags. Brave Soles is based in Toronto, Ontario. All Brave Soles shoes and accessories are available to purchase directly from the company website.
