I’m not going to lie, finding socially responsible, cruelty free shoes and accessory brands that are also high quality and fashionable, can take some extra effort. I don’t mind, but you may not have time or dedication. That is where I come in.
Whenever I discover a cruelty free fashion brand or shoe, I will do the research and share what I know on style, quality, fit and cost.
For this post… let’s begin with VEERAH shoes…a great company founded by Stacey Chang. I met with Stacey and her team at the company showroom in Manhattan. She says she spent years on research and development before launching. She wanted to make sure she was putting out a high fashion, high quality product that was customer service oriented. And from what I experienced first hand, Stacey and her team exceeded their own expectations and honestly blew me away.
First, Style & Quality: The shoes are well made and look like a high quality shoe. Most of the shoes are pumps and come in a variety of heels heights and material, including faux leather and suede, that you will think is the real deal. I’m most excited about the company’s first strappy sandal that is available on the website for preorder.
Fit: I wear a 10 regular in heels and a 9 regular in flats. The 10 pump fits like they were custom made for my feet. And there is generous padding inside the shoe under the ball of the foot.
Price: Not bad for a quality shoe starting at about $260 and going up to about $350
And if the quality of the shoe were not enough the branding is all about celebrating women. The shoes designs have names like Maya (Angelou) and Frida (Kahlo) in recognition of some iconic ladies. Also the company name, ‘Veerah’, is derived from the sanskrit word for warrior.
High fashion, quality, cruelty free and girl power… sound like it’s time to get shopping.
