Mink is a vegan shoe line that sidesteps leather for eco-friendly, animal-free materials. It has rapidly outpaced all its competitors in the arena of “green” footwear. Mink shoes are made in the same prized Italian factories that produce Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Dolce and Gabbana and more all without harming animals people or the planet. Every new style is perfected in fit, look and quality before even being considered for production. Each shoe is hand crafted by 4th and 5th generation shoe masters.
Three years of development went into the first collection. Mink shoes are assembled using materials from sustainable resources such as wood, cork, bamboo, non animal glue, vegetable resins, organic and recycled fabrics. Every pair of Mink Shoes has a personality of its own with each shoe named after the animal that inspired its creation. Since its launch in 2004 Mink has been featured in numerous press and adorned the feet of the most famous women in the world.
Dazzling and unabashedly sexy, Mink shoes effortlessly reflect Rebecca’s own sensibilities with their effervescent glamour and towering heels, which effectively elongate a woman’s legs and give her a confident posture. But perhaps more importantly, the line proves Rebecca’s conviction that a non-leather alternative can outperform traditional shoes. Machine-tested for durability, Mink shoes outlast their conventional counterpart thanks to Italian engineering.
Handmade in limited production; Mink is the highest quality vegan shoe available.
