Vegan Actor Alicia Silverstone Wished if K-Swiss’ New ‘Clueless’ Collection was Leather-free and Vegan

“Iconic ’90s Meets Timeless K-Swiss” is the tagline promoting the launch of K-Swiss’ new ‘Clueless’ collection. As the name refers, the collection is inspired by the Silverstone starrer iconic 1995 comedy. But the live inspiration behind the collection of sneakers wasn’t all happy about it. Instead, she wished if the brand had chosen to go cruelty-free instead of leather for their new line-up. K-Swiss’ new collection features shoes that were worn by the Alicia starrer character- Cher, in the coming-of-age film Clueless.

The vegan star wrote in a tweet sharing her feelings. She tagged the maker @KSWISS and wrote- “Cher and digs this look but wishes it was #CrueltyFree and made without leather (followed by a yellow heart emoji).”

K-Swiss joining the conversation responded in a tweet saying- ‘it’s one of our top priorities for 2020. The Plaid pair of shoes is Cruelty-Free!’ The company further tweeted mentioning they’re thrilled that ‘Cher digs the look!’ adding “We completely agree with you, the plaid shoe is 100% cruelty-free, and this year we have new materials partners for our first four conscious, recycled, cruelty-free shoes. Every company MUST make this transition, and it’s our top priority.” Phew! Indeed a truly comforting assurance, K-Swiss.
