The ‘Dee Dee’ Boot by Phillip Lim ($875 at Nordstroms) bares a strange association to a kilt with its four tiered grommet leather skirt to me. But it wasn’t the look of this shoe that really caught my attention. It was the material of the shoe, which is made of kangaroo!!!
As a Winnie the Pooh fan, the thought of killing off a sweet Kanga or Baby Roo to make this shoe makes Phillip Lim’s Dee Dee a deal breaker. I’m being hypocritical because cow hide is okay, but perhaps I’m just desensitized because I eat beef and love my leather purses.
What about you? Would you wear a shoe made of kangaroo leather?
