Eco-Find: Shoes You Can Bring Home to Mom & Dad
July 26, 2007
Why: Isnâ€™t it lovely how shoes are just so moral these days? While perusing the Beyond Skin website in search of a great find, what I ended up finding was myself with one of those rare yet delightful dilemmas: I could not choose just one thing to write about — I loved it all!
The collection of shoes from this exclusive ethical footwear label really made my eyes widen with desire. Catching my attention immediately was this pair of electric blue peep toe pumps. The classic stilettos in beautiful ruby red are also amazing. If you gush over jewel tones but not over running around in four-inch heels all day, there is a much lower amethyst “kitten heel” pair available, as well as round toe emerald flats.
Vegans and vegetarians will truly appreciate the cruelty-free manner in which each shoe is manufactured, (manufactured = hand-made in London), and is non-exploitative to animals, people or the greater environment. The rest of us can feel good about ourselves for being eco-friendly shoppers, for after slipping into a pair of these beauties you wonâ€™t just be strolling down the street feeling fabulously stylish, you might be inspired to pick up litter along the way. (Weâ€™re hoping thatâ€™s what Natalie Portman did when she wore them to the Golden Globesâ€¦)
