They’re here! Well, they’re here for pre-order at the Te Casan website.
Yes, I’m talking about Natalie Portman’s line of vegan shoes.
The first styles from the new line are up on the site, and you can preorder them to your heart’s content (well, up to the 100 pair per style per size limit, that is).
Personally, I’m not blown away by any of them. They’re a bit on the simple side for my taste, but they are indeed classy and dressy and presumably higher quality than a lot of the other vegan lines out there, which are often made with pretty poor materials just because they happen to not come from animals.
Let’s take a look, shall we.
The Pippa mary jane pump ($325) looks particularly snazzy in this silver.
The Pia ballet flat ($185) is cute with its little strap across the toes.
And… well… those are the only two I particularly liked. The rest just seem a tad too basic, although I recognize that may well be the point: to provide vegan shoe lovers an option for classy, basic, well-made shoes. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
I’ll certainly keep my eyes open to see what future styles come down the pike.
