VEERAH Shoes: Stacey Chang
By 2014, Stacey Chang knew fashion could be cruelty-free and beautiful shoes could be made sustainably. When searches for designer vegan shoes only turned up crocs, birks and canvas sneakers, she was surprised by the lack of options for stylish non-leather dress shoes. It was clear designer footwear needed a reboot. After spending time studying shoemaking construction in Italy and researching both manufacturing and sourcing companies across Europe and Asia, she found partners who were aligned with her vision. More committed than ever to create beautiful, ethically designed shoes that today’s mega-tasking and eco-conscious women would love, she launched VEERAH in 2016.
