Casual~ For fifteen bucks the “Cushee” flip-flops in black, go with everything and are truly comfy! The pair contains no animal byproducts or even regular animal products as they are vegan friendly and veggie friendly. They are constructed of hemp webbing uppers, and recycled rubber outsoles for durability. These Cushees also have 100% post consumer paper pulp foot forms and ship in biodegradable bags… “dig it, bury it, buh-bye”
Clubby~ Check out these sexy, hot to trot, shiny black numbers (shown in center above), made by Melissa, a Brazilian plastic shoemaker, who makes 100% recyclable “plastic” eco-footwear. The shoes are made with melflex (mono-material which can be dissassembled and recycled) and the factory recycles its factory water and waste. In addition, the production process is sustainable and fair to workers. “The employees are well-paid and the company supports many social and environmental organizations in Brazil.” ~ Via Treehugger
Classic ~ Natalie Portman has done it again. Her “Poppy” heels are versatile, sophisticated and will go with just about anything you want to dress up!
