PETA Blasts Shoes Made from Four Different Species

PETA is going toe-to-toe with a shoe designer, over new custom shoes named for the Grammy award-winning singer Beyonce, which just happen to be made from a variety of animal skins.

The sneaker wedges, featured by Perfectly Made Kicks (PMK), are crafted from stingray, ostrich, crocodile and anaconda skins. It is named the “King Bey,” after Beyoncé’s nickname.

In a statement to Gossip Cop, PETA expressed its anger, “These custom-made kicks come with a high price—and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed. Although most people aren’t as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared, and skinned alive.”

The animal rights group continued, “We hope that Beyoncé will choose to wear more clothes from her own clothing line—which features faux fur—and that one day, she’ll go completely cruelty-free. She can always choose the cruelty-free and “green” fashion favored by compassionate, chic celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway and designers such as award-winning fashion queen Stella McCartney.”

There’s really no word on whether Beyoncé has worn, or will wear, these wedges. Hopefully, she’ll choose to go another route when it comes to her fashion.

    I ask myself why this woman can not be normal in her life and always needs some extra horrific stuff!

    Those shoes are quite hideous. And it’s great that Stella McCartney creates vegan designs, but a rubber handbag that costs over $1K? They can all give me a break!

Stop calling vegan food “cruelty-free”

Many vegans proudly proclaim that their food is “cruelty-free” as though issues of justice and injustice begin and end with our use of nonhuman animals.

My Parents Forced Veganism on Me

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
