Luxury Vegan Shoe Company Debuts Affordable Line

UK high-end footwear maker Beyond Skin is seeking funds to launch 10 new affordable shoes in its latest collection.

Cruelty-free shoe makers Beyond Skin offered vintage-inspired luxury footwear for more than a decade, but has now launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new collection of affordable heels, boots, and loafers, dubbed its Diffusion line. The company recently faced financial hardship and its manufacturing factory was closed down. The designers Natalie Dean and Heather Whittle hope Kickstarter will aid with funding for production. The 10 new designs are crafted from Italian leather alternatives and are completely vegan. There are 11 days left in the campaign with a goal of 20,000 British pounds set.
