Vegan Glamour: Charmone Shoes

19Oct06


Thanks to Kate McGregor of Kaight for introducing us to this newly launched line of shoes by Charmone. The sculptural wedges and platform shoes designed in menswear tweeds are some of my favorites for adding some office chic:

The Fab Factor: According to their website the shoes are vegan and PVC free. They use instead high-quality microfiber suedes, and water-based glues which tread lighter on the planet and are healthier for people. Their shoes are made in Europe and they’ve incorporated recycled materials into their production process, and donate 5% of their profits to charities like Women for Women International, a charity that provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources they need to move from poverty and crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.

Charmone shoes are currently available in U.S. and Canadian retailers including Kate’s NY-based Kaight boutique on Orchard Street. Find your nearest one here.

Thanks Kate!
