Footwear Plus - Vegan Treats

Merry Janes
Vegan Treats:
These leather-free shoes are hardly second-rate. Animal-friendly designers are putting their category in the limelight for fall with edgy hardware, wooden heels and rich jewel tones. —Edited by Leslie Shiers

Between the chunky heel shape, luggy sole and studded faux-patent ankle strap, this velvet shoe delivers both comfort and a traffic-stopping look. "We always try to keep a balance between being trend-right and timeless with all our designs," says Neuaura designer Arti Upadhyay. She notes her fall collection encompasses varied silhouettes made with natural materials (such as linen and fabric hybrids) as well as satin and imitation leather. The line is completely animal-free, but still walks on the wild side with touches of leopard print.
