The make-up mogul describes the line, which has 28 designs, as ‘luxe vegan shoes that will last a lifetime and will make your feet look+feel beautiful’. They go up to a size 12.

She added: “While they will be affordable, they won’t be as cheap as Payless.”

Last year, the artist said she was looking at innovative leather substitutes.

“I’m not interested in looking at cheap plastics,” Von D told media outlet Racked

“We’re looking at all these innovative, different leather substitutes that are made out of mushroom and pineapple, and they’re actually great for the environment and look equal to, if not better, than leather.”
