More Great Vegan Shoes!

If you’re not going to eat meat, why would you wear it? Preferably, one would not. However, it’s not an easy task.

That’s why I’m so happy to share another great line of vegan shoes, Beyond Skin.

Beyond skin is based in the UK and is not only kind to animals, but kind to the environment, using eco-friendly materials whenever possible.

As many of us already know, the cows that are used to make leather live under horrendous, inhumane conditions only to be slaughtered in incomprehensible ways. The enormous negative impact on our environment to raise and feed the cattle as well as toxic pollution from tanneries is worth noting as well.

The only way to end all of this is to choose non-leather alternatives. Clearly, it would be nice to look cute too – Beyond Skin accomplishes both!

    For some reason she is credited with creating this line in the Babycakes cookbook too, but Natalie Portman did not create Beyond Skin, which is a UK based company. She had a line of shoes called Te Casan, although it didn’t see much success. Beyond Skin does credit Natalie Portman for their some of their success though because she wore the line at Hollywood events when they were just starting out.

    You are right! I thought I went back and corrected this a while ago but must have forgot – thanks! By the way, I love Olsen Haus shoes. They are really great!
