Rebecca Mink has been making vegan footwear long before it was a thing — the vegan animal-lover has been in business for 10 years! Not only have her fabulous ultrafeminine platforms and heels earned her a cult following, but they are made with serious dedication.

 

Mink shoes are not just vegan; they are made with eco friendly materials like recycled and upcycled fabrics, nontoxic faux leathers and renewable resources. And they are all made by hand by Italian shoemakers (so not only are they meticulously crafted, the shoes are also the opposite of sweatshop-created since they are put together in factories where quality shoemaking has a long-standing and fair-wage tradition). 

 

Now you can buy Mink heels and platforms on YOOX.com as well as finding them at boutique retailers.
