A New Groove in Shoes!SPOTTED: On websites, shoeboxes, in stores and online. A heart with a 'V' inside, 'Be Green', 'Go Veg', 'Live on the Veg'. What are all these companies talking about? Keep reading, eco-friendly fashionistas, because I'll never tell!
Recently, more and more icons are popping up on websites and stores for Vegan Footwear. What exactly is a 'vegan' shoe and why is it such a growing trend? With the ecological enlightenment of global warming, over consumption, and the consequences of synthetic plastics and other materials, there has been a huge surge in 'Green' living.
Leather is the most common animal skin in the fashion world and most of the high-end labels do not play nice when it comes to getting their supply. Amongst poor living conditions, many animals are tortured and executed without anesthesia. Many manufacturers will choose the cheapest fur farm, which often results in purchasing from some of the most cruel and inhumane ones. It's not just our furry friends that are in danger here, so are our slippery and slithery friends. Take Gucci, for example, take their snake skin from pythons...which California has banned the selling of python shoes already. Jimmy Choo even has a pair made out of eel skin!
|Maybe if she waited a few years Natalie Portman's Vegan shoe line (by Dior) may have survived :(|
|Did you know every Stella McCartney shoe is vegan-friendly?!|
P.S. ALL Groove Footwear shoes are Furry Friend Approved!
