Out Into The West...(Nine West, that is)
It's something like $78 bucks. Of course, knowing me, I'll probably wait till it's on sale. [I'm so in love with that shoe]
Anyway, upon learning that Nine West made skin-free shoes, I went and looked for all the styles they had [good news for vegs and style mavens alike!]:
Girl's Night Out
Oh The Places You'll Go
If you hover your mouse over each of the pictures- you will find the name of the item at the end of the url on the bottom of the window, example- last shoe: cailey.jpg
Here is a list of all the animal-free styles anyway [not in order]:
CAY, ACCOLIA, TARISSA, MELODY, KAROLANE, CAILEY, FLEURE, INIKO, FEFE, TRYIT, NEKESHA, IDALLIS, SAPHYRA, QUIRAN, ELEGANTE, VEDNA, FLORITA, IZZI, LIZABETH, SAVITRI, REBEKAH, BAKANA, TALLARA, SHANDAL
Hope you find these of some use! They're really beautiful- and being Nine West (I saw some of the shoes in person) they're good quality.
What's wrong with leather? (taken directly from www.cowsarecool.com)
Leather may be made from cows, pigs, goats, and sheep; exotic animals like alligators, ostriches, and kangaroos; and even dogs and cats, who are slaughtered for their meat and skins in China, which exports their skins around the world. Since leather is normally not labeled, you never really know where (or whom) it came from.
Most of the millions of animals slaughtered for their skin endure the horrors of factory farming before being shipped to slaughter, where many are skinned alive. Buying leather directly contributes to factory farms and slaughterhouses since skin is the most economically important byproduct of the meat-packing industry. Leather is also no friend of the environment since it shares all the environmental destruction of the meat industry, in addition to the toxins used in tanning.
With every pair of leather shoes that you buy, you sentence an animal to a lifetime of suffering. Instead, you can choose from hundreds of styles of nonleather shoes, clothing, belts, bags, and wallets. Fashion should be fun, not fatal! Read more about the cruelty of the leather industry.
