If you love western boots and leather flip-flops, you need to check out Austin’s new brand, Rickshaw on 3rd and Congress. The brand launched during SXSW and sells direct to consumer out of a vintage Airstream trailer. The low overhead model gives Austin the opportunity to purchase its favorite footwear at an affordable price. The name Rickshaw represents an actual Rickshaw (resembling a pedi-cab) that sells flip-flops out of its trunk and shines shoes in the cab. If you own a pair of Rickshaw Boots, you can stop by the Airstream on Sundays to get a free boot shine. What-is-more, the brand created an initiative to give back locally. It is called "Buy a Pair, Grow a Pear" and a percentage of all Rickshaw sales goes to growing and distributing organic fruits and vegetables, while educating local food shelters and families throughout Austin on the importance of a nutritious diet. The combination of it all is an Austin-inspired brand that is sure to do big things. Rickshaw is opened Tuesday – Sunday and is located on 3rd and Congress, caddy corner to the J.W. Marriott.
