We’ve bowed to the altar of Madonna for years, but sometimes even the best need a boost. (Case in point: calling in the young guns to put some pep in Madge’s step.)
The best way to express yourself? Don’t hate — collaborate.
In that vein, designer Jeffrey Campbell and eco boutique Convert team up to answer our footwear prayers with a fetching line of vegan shoes. Imagine Campbell’s playful silhouettes and prints in animal- and environment-friendly materials, then prepare for cruelty-free foot envy.
Though red hopi All Caps and Martini flats take you chicly through winter, our favorite styles are those bound for spring break holidays. The faux snakeskin Azores with braided jute begs for a jaunt to Baja. Feel the Miami heat in Glide’s chevron top and architecturally marvelous wood heel or cherish sweet Regina’s woven wedge en route to wine country.
It’s some fancy footwork.
Available at Convert, 1809 4th Street, between Hearst Avenue and Delaware Street, suite b (510-649-9759 or convertstyle.com), $107-$199.
