Fashion maven Vivienne Westwood has partnered this season with Melissa, a non toxic plastic shoe brand based out of Brazil, to bring us these interestingly sustainable shoes. The style, which is reminiscent of Westwood’s signature punk look, is so fashion-forward one might forget that the shoes are not only made out of MEFLEX (a revolutionary breathable, non-toxic plastic material), but are a hundred percent recyclable. For the vegan fashionista, these shoes are cruelty free and devoid of animal testing. And for the socially responsible, the factories that produce the shoes recycle 99.9 percent of their waste and water, and pay their workers above-average wages.
