Here at Ally shoes, our brand was built on being an ally, an ally to the community and to others. As we continue to educate ourselves on better ways to build our community to show up and to continue to be a better ally we want to highlight a list of black-owned businesses to support. It's an important time to show support and love and seek out black-owned businesses in your community or look to our list to find brands and companies that you can support. This is an ongoing list that we'll continue to add brands to this list. Please send any businesses, brands and names our way.
