While there are many low-cost shoe styles that just so happen to be made with non-leather materials for the sake of affordability, Kat Von D is introducing her own line of vegan footwear to intentionally provide a greater number of cruelty-free, stylish options for conscious consumers.
The Von D Shoes styles that have been teased so far include 'Destroyer,' 'Skeletal' and 'Candy Apple' which are made with vegan-friendly versions of foiled leather, crocodile leather and patent leather. Beyond this, the diverse footwear range also set to introduce sneakers, flats, slip-ons and boots—in all, 28 unique styles are set to be launched later this year, including some unisex designs.
Knowing that many consumers will be excited about getting their hands on these vegan leather shoes, Kat Von D does not plan to release limited-edition models.
