Iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood has created a pair of recyclable pumps made entirely of Melflex, a nontoxic rubber ( melissaplasticdreams.com; $149). If the heels aren’t kicky enough to put a bounce in your step, this should: the colorful slingbacks are a collaboration between Westwood and Brazilian footwear brand Melissa, which each year donates more than 1 million pairs of shoes to disadvantaged Brazilian communities.
