Lenny Kravitz Creates Vegan Shoes for TOMS

Inspired by its mission, Kravitz has designed a special leather-free shoe for the conscientious shoe brand.

A rumored vegetarian for years, rocker Lenny Kravitz has furthered his eco-conscious image by designing a custom shoe for one-for-one footwear company TOMS’ vegan shoe line. On its blog, the company says that Kravitz met founder Blake Mycoskie in 2010 and was inspired by the brand’s socially conscious mission. Kravitz became a collaborator on the spring 2012 collection, contributing lyrics from his song “Let Love Rule” to be used as a textile for vegan slip-ons. The compassionate shoes are entirely animal product-free and are currently available as part of the Vegan Classics line.
