"One Word: Plastics."

The term "plastic sandals" conjures up images of sweaty childhood feet stuffed into "jellies."  Namely for me.  When I think plastic sandals, I think gross.

The July issue of Vogue features some anything BUT child-like plastic Givenchy Sandals.

Givenchy head designer, Riccardo Tisci says "I wanted this shoe to be more accessible in terms of price and practicality" (July 2009 Vogue).  These shoes are comfortable (according to Vogue) and range from about $163 - $170.  Plus they come in a variety of bright-ass summer show stopping colors:

But we don't have to stop there.  Here are a handful of summer sandals that are easy on the budget (around $100) and don't hurt animals (all VEGAN).

These sandals sold on Tobi are called the Melissa Mystery Gladiator Sandals and are only $71.

White Studded Sandals my the British Miss Selfridge are £28.

These are from one of my favorite green sites called Nimli.  These silver sandals are made by Neuaura Puma and will set you out $94.

These classic (un-kid-like) jellies are made by Melissa Plastic Dreams and cost $79.

These are my personal fav's, also from Nimli. They are by Olsen Haus for $128.

Give your feet some vegan love this summer.

Love you, mean it


p.s. If anyone catches the title reference I'll buy them a coke (my sister will probably be the only one).
