A collaboration this good happens only once in a long while. PETA has joined forces with Italian luxury shoemaker Mink to create limited-edition, vegan ostrich-print ballet flats. Catch your breath, because there’s more.

PETAxMINK flats are available in two colors—wine and black—and feature a gold PETA bunny charm. Like all Mink couture shoes, these flats are made of high-tech, durable, nonsolvent microfiber fabric—and in honor of the collaboration, a percentage of sales from the collection will go toward PETA’s important work to help animals used in the clothing industry.

Earlier this year, PETA released the first-ever exposé of the highly secretive ostrich-slaughter industry, in which young ostriches endure immense suffering before they’re finally killed and their feathers are plucked out to create the bumpy-textured skin used in ostrich-leather handbags. The best way to avoid being a part of this horror is to buy vegan ostrich leather instead of the cruelly produced kind.

While ostrich-skin shoes harm animals, Mink’s cruelty-free ostrich-print shoes will help PETA save animals. With their stylish design and luxe vegan Italian leather, PETAxMINK shoes are the perfect choice for shoppers looking to make a kind high-end purchase. Be sure to get your pair in time for the holidays!
