‘Roo Sneakers not Posh for Becks

We love strange eco-friendly stories, especially when tied to recent LA-transplants Posh and Becks (that’s Victoria and David Beckham to you newbies). As Beckham begins his legendary career with soccer team LA Galaxy, it’s the issue of his shoes that’s grabbing attention. According to NPR’s All Things Considered, kangaroo leather-based soccer shoes are the most popular kind among soccer players due to their “softness and durability”; they are also illegal to buy and sell in California, according to a recent California Supreme Court ruling.

That being said, most soccer players either don’t know or don’t care about the ban. Posh, however, is a vegetarian, and since learning about the cruelty to ‘roos to make the cleats, Beckham supports his wife (and the ‘roos) by wearing a special synthetic version created just for him.  Hmm, I wonder if Posh’s many Birkin bags come in a synthetic version, too?

Thanks to Linton for the tip!
