Sadly, their whole collection isn’t vegan but they do have a small, yet stylish, collection of vegan shoes including these minimal thongs made from apple leather.
It’s not summer unless you have a pair of sliders. Made from apple leather, these sliders also have a contoured footbed for ultra comfort.
