Sustainability and high fashion aren’t exactly synonymous. But several designers are determined to change that.They’re offering eco-friendly (made from recycled and earth-friendly components) and vegan (containing no animal products) shoes that don’t skimp on style.
Firms include contemporary vegan line Cri de Coeur ($220 to $340, at Endless.com) from designer Gina Ferraraccio. “I realized how toxic the footwear industry was, and I wanted to do something socially responsible,” she says.
