About

Mindesi, the luxurious vegan shoe brand that has been missing. Our unique styles never go out of fashion. Specially designed to complete your look for every occasion in a comfortable and elegant way.

We care for the environment, animals and people alike. Our shoes are cruelty-free and made in Europe. We chose the best quality vegan materials from Italy and an experienced manufacturer in Portugal to obtain an exceptional quality of our products. Our shoes are approved by PETA and registered with the Vegan Society.

Mindesi is a vegan fashion brand established in 2018 in the South of France. The brand strives to offer cruelty-free products that combine elegance and simplicity.  

It has developed women’s footwear collection and claims to affirm its unique identity of stylish and ethical footwear, with a firm commitment to the planet and those who live on it. 

The brand goes further by donating 5% of each customer's purchase made through the website www.mindesi.com after the Kickstarter campaign. The donations will go to good causes such as supporting shelters and associations working for the welfare of animals and the environment.

Our products are designed and made in Europe. They must fulfill 5 essential criteria before being offered for sale:  

- Minimalism  
- Comfort   
- Elegance 
- Aesthetics   
- Ethics

It took us months to create our first shoe collection. Now, to finalize this project, we need your help! Our first collection includes 5 women’s shoe styles. By raising money, we can start production and turn this great project into a reality.

 The REGINA Pumps are the perfect high heels to complete that stylish ensemble. With approx. 6cm block heel in black or beige faux suede. Built stylish and elegant, these high heels are extremely versatile, perfect for every look. We use only the finest vegan materials from Italy, that are both breathable and water-resistant.

 Guaranteed to make you happy, these Stylish, delicate ankle boots are built with you in mind. The Grazia boots offer an excellent comfort and a classic style that never goes out of fashion. The Grazia boots are made to last. Constructed in black or brown faux leather with approx. 6cm block heel, these extremely versatile boots fit perfectly with any look. We use only the finest vegan materials from Italy, that are both breathable and water-resistant.

 These versatile women's casual boots take a new approach to the iconic Chelsea look. Built stylish and super comfortable, the BELLA Chelsea boots are the ultimate style statement. The black and brown faux leather finished with a firm outsole is a natural fit. Lined on the inside with a soft textile that provides an exceptional level of comfort and wearability, the boots are made sturdy and comfortable. We use only the finest vegan materials from Italy, that are both breathable and water-resistant.

 These classic, minimalist flats are the perfect knockabout for today’s modern woman. Made in black faux leather or beige faux suede and finished with a vegan rubber outsole. STELLA Flats are perfect for the smart casual look. We use only the finest vegan materials from Italy, that are both breathable and water-resistant.

 Built for style, these casual women’s sneakers in white faux leather are super soft, comfortable and extremely durable. The flexible outsole completes the minimalist stylish look that is discreet yet sassy. We use only the finest vegan materials from Italy, that are both breathable and water-resistant.

 We care for the environment, animals and people alike. Our shoes are cruelty-free, made in Europe, approved by PETA and registered with the Vegan Society. We use breathable and water-resistant polyamide, faux leather, microfiber, and polyester. The outsole is made from durable synthetic rubber.

 We chose to support a European team of professionals and pay fair labour prices. At the same time, we make sure that the highest quality standards of shoe production are met.

We selected a small European workshop located in Portugal. The country specializes in shoe manufacturing and has the real know-how in shoe production. We purchase our vegan materials from Italy because we aim for the highest quality available.

   We'll help you choose your perfect size after the campaign.

1 - Make Mindesi a reference brand in the world of women's fashion.  

2 - Our shoes look and feel great. Not only are they stylish, but they are lightweight and very comfortable.  

3 - Our company is committed to helping the ones without a voice. We are donating 5% of all customer's purchases made after the Kickstarter campaign to shelters and associations working for the welfare of animals and the environment. Each donation will be clear and well communicated.  

4 - By supporting the project, you will allow us to launch the first production line, build the first stock and allow the project to take off. If we go beyond our goal, we can quickly add new models for men and women as well as accessories.  

5 - We worked very hard for this project. Like most entrepreneurs, we had to work laterally with our full-time jobs and finance the production so far with our own savings. Backing up the campaign will help us work full time for our company and create many more unique and cruelty-free projects.

We are committed to adopting and maintaining an ethical and responsible product positioning. This lies in the core of Vegever’s project, of which Mindesi is a member.

For the Planet

  The modern leather industry is simultaneously killing the local environment and the people that work in it with a toxic slurry of chemicals. Furthermore, huge amounts of fossil fuels are consumed in livestock production each year meaning the negative environmental impact is three times higher for cow-derived leather than for synthetic leather.  

  Choosing ethical footwear doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice aesthetics and elegance. We aim to offer a more sustainable business and plan to continuously improve our production process by using even more environmentally friendly materials in the future.

For the Animals

  All of our products are and will always remain 100% vegan. Our brand is devoted to using environmentally friendly methods and sustainable materials that are cruelty-free, approved by PETA and registered with the Vegan Society.  


  For us, this undertaking is also about sharing the benefits with the world, especially with those without a voice. As a new company approach, we have decided to donate 5% of our revenue to good causes such as supporting shelters and associations working for the welfare of animals and the environment.

For the People

  We care about all stakeholders involved in the production of our products and stand firmly behind the use of fair-trade materials and healthy labour conditions. Mindesi products are ethically made under European Union employment, discrimination, and health & safety laws. Our shoes are made with fair-trade 100% vegan materials from Italy.

  We have chosen to pay higher production costs in the EU as opposed to other regions that do not have such high labour and production standards. A price worth paying to ensure the fulfilment of Mindesi’s high ethical and labour standards.

  Taking a holistic approach at each and every step of our production process makes us proud of our work and optimistic about the future of the shoe fashion industry.

  We make sure that we guarantee fair prices for our products to customers and the people involved in the production process alike.

  We pay special attention to accessibility. Our website is simple and easy to use, so all users have equal access to information and functionality.

 We limit the use of online trackers and advertising because we are committed to ensuring the protection, confidentiality, and security of the personal data of the users of our services, as well as respecting their privacy.

For the Future

 We have come a long way to create our first collection, find an ethical producer in Portugal and choose one of the best available vegan materials from Italy.

Now we are excited to share all of that with you.

 Mindesi is part of Vegever, a private company with 2 partners. Up to date, we have not received any remuneration for this project. We commit to donating 5% of our revenue to projects that are in favour of the humanity and the animals, we will use the rest of the profit to sustain Mindesi and launch new projects working for the common good.

We’ll keep you updated on the impact and the results of those donations through the or our website, newsletter and social channels.

Our team is composed of passionate animal lovers, who care very much about all animals and are deeply concerned about the impact that the leather industry has on our planet.  

Our love for animals and our passion for shoes has connected us to a team of passionate and dedicated young professionals. There is nothing that will stop us from following the strictest standards in producing beautifully designed, sustainable, cruelty-free and fairly produced vegan shoes.  

We spent every day of the past 11 months working tirelessly on this project. Like most entrepreneurs, we had to work alongside our full-time jobs and finance the production entirely with our own savings.

If you choose pack 2, 8 or 9, you will receive this wonderful tote bag.

By supporting the project, you will allow us to launch the first production line, build the first stock and allow the project to take off.

If we go beyond our goal, we can quickly add new models for men and women as well as accessories.  

We will contact you at the end of the campaign to finalize your order.

Risks and challenges

As a team of professionals, we would do anything to obtain 100% customer satisfaction, that’s why we strive to produce luxurious vegan shoes that you are going to absolutely love.

Our workshops have signed a charter attesting that all products and practices used in the shoe production are 100% vegan. Our products are approved by PETA and registered with the Vegan Society, verifying that our shoes are cruelty and leather-free.

We promise to communicate with full transparency to you. We will provide updates at each stage to keep you fully informed of the progress of the project.
