Stella McCartney’s ‘Biodegradable’ heels reflect the designer's commendable conscience. Forming a part of her A/W’12 collection, the eco-friendly line of footwear is consistent with McCartney’s vegetarian lifestyle and concern for the environment. While other fashion designers make frequent use of fur and leather trimmings, McCartney has gone to great lengths to ensure that her garments are free of animal by-products.

The McCartney Biodegradable heels are business-savvy and sleek. Red, black and brown bioplastic textiles offset striking white soles, a feature that sets these pumps apart from the rest. Aside from their eye-catching nature, the white soles are also derived from raw materials which will eventually disintegrate into the environment. By reducing the fashion collective’s ecological footprint, McCartney’s Biodegradable heels are making a humane albeit elegant worldly statement.
