After doing the post on bags, I checked out the shoes on AE.com to see if there was anything good. Unfortunately, most everything in the shoe section is “genuine suede” (great!!), but this velvet ballet flat, from what I could gather, uses no leather since it has a rubber sole and a velvet upper.
I love velvet and this shoe reminds me of the shoes that a dog might bring an old gentleman sitting in a velvet chair–in other words, velvet slippers. I love that.
There is also a leopard print version of the shoe
Leopard Ballet Flat
Soft Microfiber Fabric
Rubber sole (I’m assuming since that’s what the velvet ballet flat was)
This reminds me of something Brigitte Bardot would wear with ankle length black pants and an over-sized shirt. Amazing how Brigitte Bardot has devoted her life to animals these days. A very cool person.
Well that finishes off my journey into the depths of AE.com seeking non leather items. What did you think?
