The Autumn’s Four Sexiest, Most Sustainable Shoes

Posted Oct 16 2008 7:15pm

The good news is that I really don’t need much in the way of new shoes this Autumn. But I have been feeling decidedly dowdy of late and I realized I don’t really wear very sexy shoes (cool shoes, interesting shoes, comfortable shoes, arty shoes, fabulous shoes, yes, I have all of those, but sexy shoes? Not a ONE!). I thought I would share the results of my quest with you.

The Peacock, shown above, is available at Embodies.

These yellow pumps from Form and Fauna are very Mad Men, and like the buxom readhead on the show, totally droolworthy. All F&F shoes are vegan and have major eco-cred: “Upper is a biodegradable synthetic, heel is made from scrap alder wood, insole liner is open cell rubber”. NICE!

Sexy and classy all tied up together. These are available at Ped.

Everyone who knows me knows I’m a little obsessed with Cydwoq shoes. Their women’s boots and sandals are absolute knockouts (I’ve had a pair of sandals for about three years from this company, and they are wearing beautifully and they are my MOST comfortable sandals ever). All styles are made from vegetable-tanned and naturally dyed leather, handmade in Burbank California, and these above are so hot! The men’s shoes and boots are really fantastic too, and worth checking out.

These Linneah bootie-slingbacks are sexy in that “I can kick your ass if I want to” way. They’re available at Nimli.

Cri de Coeur (which is Francais for “Cry from the Heart”) is a brand-new line of vegan shoes from Greenpoint, Brooklyn-based designer Gina Ferraraccio. Cri offsets it’s carbon with carbonfund.org AND plants a tree for every shoe purchased.

The demure/whorish Cinnamon pumps are available on the Charmone site.

These Charmone beauties are flirty-flirty; perfect for holiday parties with pretty frocks or would be an unexpected, interesting contrast with grey skinny jeans for a workday. Velvet AND satin in the same shapely package, they are vegan, sweatshop-free and ecofriendly, as are all Charmone shoes.
