Natalie Portman's Vegan Shoe Line Shown The Door

Natalie Portman’s vegan shoe line with Té Casan is no more.

The company and its website are gone — a victim of the financial crisis — taking with them the Natalie Portman Collection and making her initial run of animal-friendly shoes even more limited-edition than was expected. (Although you can still find them online if you do a bit of digging…)

Back in February, Portman commented on how she came to the decision to design a line of vegan shoes. “Basically, I did it out of a lack of choice,” she said. “Stella McCartney does great shoes, but they’re expensive and very fashiony. I wanted a mary-jane shoe without leather. I’ve been getting stuff from Target, which is de facto vegan because it’s so cheap. But I did need some shoes that weren’t made of canvas or plastic.”

Granted, as we’ve always said, $250 shoes aren’t really that affordable for most of us. Perhaps it’s no surprise that Té Casan went under with prices like that. Hopefully, Portman will find another outlet to express her vegan designs through. This time, can we shoot for under $100?

Please, Jenna Dewan Tatum, stick to ethical veganism

Jenna, use your star power to remind people that animals cannot be commodified, but make sure that’s the position you believe whole-heartedly first.
