To date, I have seen remarkable vegan luxury shoe brands hit the market that appeal to everyone. They`re well crafted, beautifully made and they`re cruelty-free. You don’t have to be a vegan to like these shoes, you just have to like well-made shoes that will stand the test of time. But if you are a vegan these shoes will appeal to your ethical sensibility.
Amelie Pichard Pamela Anderson x Honest By
First up is the vegan luxury shoe collaboration between Honest By and Pamela Anderson. In case you didn`t know Pamela Anderson is an animal advocate and has been for decades. It shouldn`t come as a surprise that she would lend her name to a line of shoes that are 100% vegan. Created with designer Amelie Pichard for Honest By, these sexy mules hope to raise awareness for the ethical treatment of animals. Made in France these mules are available in black and lilac patent faux leather. A donation of 10% will go to the Pamela Anderson Foundation Honest By just opened their first flagship store in Antwerp, Belgium, their online shop is available worldwide.
Based in Portugal Guava is one of the best vegan luxury shoe companies I have ever seen. Ines Caleiro, honed her skills at Jimmy Choo for fine craftsmanship and luxury details. But it was her experience working in furniture that inspired the architectural details that set Guava apart. They aren’t just shoes, they really are works of art. Anyone would be proud to wear. The signature heels give these shoes a highly recognisable identity. Choosing to use vegan leathers and ethical materials, Guava puts out small yearly collections.
Cult of Coquette
Sexy, classic and sky-high heels are what Cult of Coquette is known for. You really can’t have enough of a classic pump or court shoe. They’ll never go out of style, and you can wear them with anything. They come in a variety of colours and textures so there’s something for everyone. All shoes are handmade with vegan and cruelty-free materials, so animal lovers shop to your heart’s content. Heels are 4.75 inches, they’re not for the faint hearted. But they will make your legs look extremely long and gorgeous.
Mink by Rebecca Mink was intentionally created as a vegan luxury shoe brand. Rebecca a wardrobe stylist saw a gap in the market and decided to fill it. Appealing to vegan celebrities, Mink also offers custom made shoes for their customers. If you can think it, they can make it. Using the same factories as Jimmy Choo, and Christian Louboutin, Mink shoes are comprised of faux leather and fur, non-animal glue, recycled and organic materials and vegetable-based plastics. The latest collection PETAxMink is a collaboration with PETA to raise awareness for animal cruelty. I plan to sit down with Rebecca in the near future to find out more about her company and what keeps her going. For now shopping online is a breeze if you can’t find her shoes in a store near you.
