People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ latest collaboration is a bit of a shoo-in (or should we say shoe-in?) The animal-rights group announced Tuesday that it’s partnering with M4D3 (Make A Difference Everyday), a social enterprise that creates footwear with a purpose, to release a limited-edition vegan-leather espadrille. A Mediterranean-style flat that “spares cows painful mutilations in the leather industry,” according to PETA, each slip-on shoe features a jute-rope sole, 100 percent cruelty-free materials, and both the M4D3 and PETA logos on its tag, inner sole, and back.

SOLE MATES

“Vegan fashion is on the rise as shoppers realize how kind, eco-friendly, and beautiful animal-free clothing and accessories can be,” says Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA. “M4D3’s unique mix of style and social justice is the perfect match for a special-edition PETA shoe.”

Vegan shoes are also gentler on the environment. Leather tanneries typically use highly toxic mineral salts, formaldehyde, coal-tar derivatives, and various oils, dyes, and finishes that can pollute neighboring ecosystems, Reiman adds.

The M4D3 x PETA collection will be available for preorder through the PETA Catalog and www.made-shoes.com starting in May. PETA will receive a portion of the proceeds of each sale.
