Miley Cyrus is forever making vegan headlines for all the right reasons. And this latest one is no exception. The pop star has revealed a sneak peek at her newest collaboration with Converse shoes.
She often chooses to use her platform to raise awareness on important animal welfare issues. Back in October of last year she asked people to ‘adopt not shop‘ when looking for a pet; and when the LA wildfires hit, she encouraged her followers to carry out simple tasks to help the animals in their area.
At the end of 2017 Miley uploaded a heartfelt Instagram post that said, “living a completely vegan life style, whether it’s what I eat or wear I am very certain that veganism is taking over and stoked to see so many brands jumpin on this revolution!”
So with this in mind, it is strongly suspected that Miley’s new range of Converse is completely cruelty-free. If you’ve been keeping up with the vegan queen on social media lately, you’ll notice the star has been snap-happy, proudly showing millions of fans her glittery, unisex designs named ‘Miley X Converse’.
Miley is the founder of nonprofit organization ‘Happy Hippie‘. Its mission is “to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations.” Hence, Cyrus’ Converse shoe range is free of any gender labels, color stereotypes, and other conformities. Converse has a ‘Yes To All‘ range of footwear and clothing, all proceeds of which support pride and pro-LGBT organizations, including Miley’s Happy Hippie Foundation.
Although Miley made her exciting footwear announcement in November last year, it is only recently she has begun showcasing her stylish designs. The shoes have a personal touch, differentiating them from other Converse styles, her initials ‘MC’ inside a smiley face feature on the side of the heel.
Converse, which is owned by Nike, is advertising this shoe line as “Forever Chuck. For Every Miley.”and hinting that this footwear is durable, weather-resistant and made to last. Miley features in a promo video splashing in the back of a truck-turned-pool, donning a pair of her soft-pink-colored Converse shoes.
Miley recently told followers there is “much more to come“, leaving many fans now eagerly waiting for the full release of her collection.
