The wait is almost over!!
On Wednesday, Kat Von D unveiled the first prototype from her highly-anticipated shoe line. According to the tattoo artist, the ruby red patent heel is one of twenty-six styles the musician will be launching. "MY NEW #VEGAN SHOE LINE IS COMING TO LIFE!" the 35-year-old captioned the photo, alongside a heart emoji.
Katherine von Drachenberg, better known as Kat Von D, also thanked fans for their patience while she has been perfecting her animal-friendly and cruelty-free collection. "To all my dear vegan + non-vegan friends, thank you for being so patient! I know how hard it is to find high-quality shoes with style that aren't made from animal leather, fur, or use glues derived from horses+cows, and that you can afford!" the tattoo queen said.
Back in January, the brunette beauty took to Instagram to share the exciting news about her new shoe line. “Finally turned in all the content for my #vegan shoe line I plan on launching this year! Now maybe my office can go from looking like a serial [shoe] killer's place back to normal,” the Mexican-born artist told her six million followers. In the short clip, the founder of Kat Von D Beauty gave fans a sneak peek of some of her sketches from her upcoming cruelty-free footwear collection – including an intricate cob-webbed design
Of course, it's not surprising the former LA Ink star, who is a huge advocate against animal cruelty, chose to create a cruelty-free shoe line. Earlier this week, the Mexican-American belleza, who reformulating all her beauty products to be vegan back in 2016, took to Instagram to voice her disappointment after Nars announced it would start testing on animals in order to sell in China.
Although the brunette beauty has yet to reveal any further details about prices, she did reveal her vegan shoe line will launch by the end of this year. Until then, I guess I'll start saving my lucky pennies!
