    Salmon Skin Shoes | Salmon Leather Shoes

    I read that Isaac Mizrahi has been using salmon skin for his new shoes. It's supposed to be tougher than calfskin but with a nice texture. Maybe it will become a popular search term among fashionistas

    Salmon skin? Interesting. I don't know if this is something I could jump on board with. As a fashion designer, and environmentally-friendly and aware individual, I believe this would be a fashion crime!

    Salmon are actually going into extinction territory. There are several companies and conservatories working on ensuring the salmon continue to repopulate and follow their usual upstream trail.  I would hate to find out that the fashion world had anything to do with this problem becoming larger.

    Whether or not they are tougher than calfskin is yet to be known. I doubt they are tougher, but they would definitely have a varied texture. It would be interesting to see, and a definite distinct shoe, but not worth the price it would cost.

    Of course, this is just my opinion and understanding on the matter. I know Mizrahi is an understanding and conscious designer. He may be taking the salmon from a created hatchery or something that would not be harmful to the environment. In that case - have at it and happy shopping salmon everyone!!!

    I think it is a great idea...I really like the whole eco-fashion looks. Sadly, I don't know how well it will catch on as far as main stream. Not only is Isaac Mizrahi using the salmon skin for shoes- he also made a collection which I believed appeared at fashion week. Mizrahi’s dress is made of discarded skins of Alaskan salmon sewn onto chiffon. Eco-fashion is growing but even Isaac said “Frankly, unless something is really glamorous and amusing, I’m not going to sell my artistic principles short for the sake of ‘going green.’” lol. If you like eco-fashion or one to learn more about it

    salmon skin? wow... I agree about not jumping on board with this either. I spent a large amount of time catching and releasing these fish in college in the mountains and that would suck to see a bunch of fashion people risking this fishes longevity.
