Beyoncé’s Custom Isabel Marant Wedge Sneakers Upset’s PETA

Beyoncé has ignited some fire with PETA again!! The animal-rights group is slamming the Super Bowl star yet again after footwear design house PMK created a custom Isabel Marant sneaker wedge for the singer made of a range of exotic animal skins including stingray, ostrich, calf hair, crocodile and anaconda and appropriately named “The King Bey.”

Obviously, PETA is not happy with the custom-made sneakers. They provided a statement about the unfavorable fashion choice below:

“These custom-made kicks come with a high price and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed. Although most people aren’t as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared and skinned alive.

We hope that Beyonce will choose to wear more clothes from her own clothing line, which features faux fur, and that one day, she’ll go completely cruelty-free.

She can always choose the cruelty-free and green fashion favored by compassionate, chic celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway and designers such as award-winning fashion queen Stella McCartney.”

Gumbumpers, are you Team Bey or Team PETA? Tell us in the comments.
