Katherine Von Drachenberg, also known as Kat Von D, is an artist, tattooer, author, musician, activist, and of course, the founder of Kat Von D beauty but she’s not stopping there. She’s adding a new title to her list with her latest footwear line!
You don’t have to be a makeup enthusiast (myself included) to know how invincible her products are. After all, a woman kindly wrote a review about how her Kat Von D Tattoo Liner saw her through her car accident. Now, imagine the same kind of high quality formula in Kat Von D’s latest footwear venture, Von D.
Von D self-proclaimed to be one of the biggest shoe junkie on the planet. She became a vegan in 2013 and confessed that the most challenging part about being a vegan is to find shoes with high quality, long-lasting and beautifully designed that are not made of any animals.
Speaking to InStyle about her new venture, Von D said: “We actually found this factory in Italy that is comprised of families of artists,” and revealed that “Our shoes are made in the same factories as Gucci, Chanel, Dior, and Jimmy Choo — that’s the level of quality that you’re getting.”
Von D spent more than two years curating her shoe collection and is proud that aside from being vegan, some of the styles are sustainable; the leather-like material are made with compressed mushrooms, pineapples and apples.
There are a total of 26 different styles in this collection — Platforms, wedges, kitten heels, combat boots, riding boots, moon boots, creepers, ballet flats, gladiator sandals, sneakers, and slip-ons.
Here’s a sneak peek on some of the styles from the upcoming Von D collection!
Von D’s shoes will officially launch on Nov 1, the same day as World Vegan Day. The sizes run from 5 to 12, and price ranges from US$90-350. Von D’s shoes ship internationally, and you can make your purchases on their website.
