Cri De Coeur – animal instinct minus the animal


Vegan shoe designer Gina Ferraraccio’s done it again.  Much like her debut spring line, the fall-winter line poses a serious shoe dilemma for those who are passionate about their ethical footwear.

Just too many hot, fetching styles.  On a tight budget?  Buy less, and buy quality.

Below are a couple of personal faves.
(L) Linneah, a ruched, sling-back bootie ($265).

(R) Libby, a short boot with snaps; faux suede and shearling ($275).

Both made without any animal products, and with an eco friendly tanning process.


In step with the times; all carbon emissions that can’t be avoided are offset via and for every pair sold, a tree is planted.
