There is no reason you can't be fashionable while still treating the planet right, and these dazzling eco-friendly Manolo Blahniks prove it. The celebrated Spanish shoe designer collaborated with the US-based Marcia Patmos to create a line of eco-friendly sandals and heels. Utilizing highly sustainable materials such as tilapia skin, raffia and cork, the duo has crafted some astounding pieces.

This is the first time tilapia fish skin has been used in fashion, but it was quite an intelligent selection. Normally discarded by-product of the food industry, tilapia skin has been put to use to deck out these sumptuous kicks. These classy Manolo Blahniks retail for $895 a pair and are currently only available in the US.

Sure to catch the eye of any moneyed fashionista in the vicinity, these eco-friendly Manolo Blahniks are both fashionable and sustainable.
