Vegan footwear. Just reading those words conjures images of old-fashioned and poorly designed shoes your misunderstood aunt living in the countryside might have worn ten years ago. While options in the women’s footwear industry have certainly expanded in the last decade – without naming any names – none of the shoes were cute enough to compete with the big guys, the luxury brands. Inspired by the gap in the market and fueled by her mission to promote a more conscious lifestyle, Bianca took matters into her own hands (and feet) to launch the next generation of footwear for vegans and non-vegans alike.
Bianca's pick at Arcana: Books on the Arts, her favorite photography bookstore as featured in Start Today.
Meet Sid and Simone, Bianca’s furry babies and SUSI’s mascots.
Named after Siddhartha, the main character of Hermann Hesse’s fictional novel of spiritual self-discovery, and Simone de Beauvoir, famed political activist and feminist, respectively, these little guys are cuddly reminders to enjoy the ride and believe in ourselves.
