Description of vegan shoe boot or belt

Audrey slippers are slow fashion. If anybody wants to tell us the history of them, please get in touch! By the 2000s there were still a couple fo firms making them in the UK, one of which had taken-over the tools of Pirelli, the rubber company, when it pulled out of slipper manufacturing. By the mid 20-teens, both firms had closed although there is stilll one that might make 200-pair orders. The wholesaler that used to sell a lot of these things found a supplier in Spain that can make an almost identical design so that shoe shops don't have continuity of supply and don't need to leave gaps on the shelves: a thrifty solution. It's an extreme contrast to trainer designs that use a lot of cheap labour that's only possible in the far east, and change each year so that only the most on-message high-turnover shop can stock them and even those shops have to mark-down the odd sizes left from last years' style, so everybody is very busy and nobody makes any money. That's the difference between slow and fast fashion, except that there isn't much money in Audrey slippers either - their  just a more sustainable option.
