Last fall Sadie Robertson made a splash when she launched a rain boot line with Roma Boots. The boots, which feature bright colors and trendy floral patterns, have been selling out across the country. But it’s what happens after stylish Americans buy a pair of Sadie’s boots that initially attracted the “Duck Dynasty” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member to partner on the rain boot collection.
Roma gives back: For each pair of boots sold the company donates another pair, filled with school supplies, to a child in need around the world.
“My collaboration with Roma Boots has just been absolutely incredible,” said Sadie Robertson. “I get to go on a lot of mission trips. I’m very blessed to get to do that. Roma is so unique.”
In December, Sadie Robertson had the opportunity to personally participate in a Roma Boots “Giving Poverty the Boot” boot drop in Guatemala. The socially minded young entrepreneur took the opportunity to include the whole family.
Parents Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson, along with siblings Rebecca, Bella, Willie Jr., and John Luke joined Sadie on the charitable mission. Grandparents John and Chrys Howard helped out, too, delivering protective boots, school supplies, and heart-felt affection for a group of children in Guatemala.
“We actually designed these boots this year, then did a boot drop the same year with all these boots for all these kids,” Sadie said. “To see the smiles on their faces is just priceless. It’s been great.”
Sadie Robertson, whose Live Original brand encourages people to express their unique gifts and talents, appears with her family in Season 9 of “Duck Dynasty,” which premieres on January 13th on 9/8 on A&E. All 88 episodes from prior seasons are available to watch online at the A&E “Duck Dynasty” site.
