Berkeley is often stereotyped as a city full of treehugging weirdos, but we're much more than that -- we're also vegan and sustainability-obsessed weirdos, too. Luckily, you don't have be a member of Greenpeace to get behind this soon-to-be-released collaboration between LA footwear company Jeffrey Campbell and sustainable fashion store Convert. The line, which includes four flats and one platform, uses materials like deadstock (clothing which has never been worn...like vintage only without the funky smell) fabrics, biodegradable fibers, jute, and glue that is free of animal products. More importantly, these shoes look like they would make a great addition to any summer wardrobe, so hurry up and climb down from that tree to score your own pair!
The collection will be released on May 15th and is carried exclusively by Convert. Convert is located at 1809B Fourth Street in Berkeley, CA and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
