Los Angeles – Just in time for the holiday shopping season, vegan shoemaker SUSI Studio has launched a limited-edition SUSI x PETA ankle boot. SUSI devotees who will receive a pair of the new shoes include Miley Cyrus, Emma Watson, and Rooney Mara.
The ’70s-style camel-colored faux-suede boots—made with recycled plastic and rubber—retail for $115, and 30 percent of sales will go toward PETA’s work to help animals used in the clothing industry. They will be available for pre-order starting today and ready to ship by January 2.
SUSI Studio founder Bianca Moran says, “SUSI is beyond excited to collaborate with PETA on these limited-edition boots, which prove that we can have fun with our wardrobes while still taking steps toward a kinder world for all beings.”
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman adds, “The luxe SUSI x PETA ankle boots are the perfect choice for any modern woman wanting to live more consciously—and to look good while doing it.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—notes that cows killed for leather endure castration, tail-docking, and dehorning without any painkillers. At slaughterhouses, they may be skinned and dismembered while they’re still conscious. Tanneries use 130 different chemicals to prevent animals’ skins from decomposing in the buyer’s closet, and people who work in and live near tanneries suffer from exposure to these toxic chemicals.
