NEW: Vegan Shoes for Style That’s More Than Skin Deep

ahFzfnNob2Vzb2ZwcmV5LWhyZHIWCxINQmxvZ0ltYWdlRGF0YRjDqKEIDAWhat do Olivia Wilde, Pamela Anderson and Alicia Silverstone have in common? Besides the odd questionable film (Barb Wire, anyone?), they’re all animal activists – and we’re guessing they’ll be thrilled with our new vegan materials.

Certified by The Vegan Society, the Shoes of Prey new range includes eight fabrics free of animal products and testing. Ultra-bright and soft with a leather-like look, the materials can be applied to any of their 16 base shapes to construct completely cruelty-free shoes.

Designing your own vegan style is easy: select your base shape, then look for the Certified Vegan symbol on their Leathers & Fabrics panel to choose a material from their vegan range – any shoe made from vegan materials will automatically have lining and extra components 100 per cent free of animal products too.

After a super-fun look? Their glitter, sequin and cotton blends are also vegan, so you can create ethical shoes in those fabrics as well.

At a luxury level, vegan fashion has been long been pioneered by designers like Stella McCartney and Victoria Bartlett of VPL. Now you can take the same concept and apply it to any footwear look you love – whether you’re after a dramatic stiletto or super-comfy flats.

Prices for their vegan styles start from $150 for sandals and $195 for ballet flats – which means it’s even easier to champion feel-good fashion your own way.

More on the Vegan Society accreditation: in 1944 The Vegan Society created the word ‘vegan’. Products achieving certification and bearing The Vegan Society’s international vegan standard trademark must meet the following criteria:

Free of animal ingredients – The manufacture and/or development of the product, and where applicable its ingredients, must not involve, or have involved, the use of any animal product, by-product or derivative.

Free of animal testing – The development and/or manufacture of the product, and where applicable its ingredients, must not involve, or have involved, testing of any sort on animals conducted at the initiative of the manufacturer or on its behalf, or by parties over whom the manufacturer has effective control.
