Vegan Shoe Shines Light on Cruelty of Ostrich Farms

Life or Lunch?

Los Angeles company Mink debuts cruelty-free ostrich leather flats to raise awareness of the big bird’s plight in the fashion industry.

Los Angeles-based vegan shoe company Mink released the first-ever pair of Italian-made faux ostrich shoes. Mink partnered with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to create the new hand-stamped ostrich-print ballerina shoe—available in black and “wine”—in an effort to raise awareness about the conditions ostriches face on leather farms. Celebrity stylist Rebecca Mink founded the company in 2000, which produces vegan shoes in the same Italian factory as top brands Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Jimmy Choo, and Dolce and Gabbana, amongst others. The PETAxMINK faux ostrich shoe is available for custom pre-order until January 8, 2017, and 20-percent of profits will be donated to PETA.
