Portia De Rossi Gets Her Kicks Designing Shoes

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Portia de Rossi is getting her foot in the door in the world of design.

While simultaneously filming the new ABC comedy Better Off Ted, de Rossi is working on a line of shoes, but don’t expect her to make schlumpy Crocs or sneakers.

The actress says her line will be comprised of “definitely beautiful shoes,” mainly high heels, and will be completely animal friendly.

She says, “I don’t like to use leather unless I have to. So I’m trying to do a shoe line that is lovely and vegan.”

With Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) on the horizon, de Rossi is considering making her wife, Ellen DeGeneres, a pair of kicks as a gift.

However, Ellen may be getting a whole lot of nothing on the big day.

She says, “We have our anniversary of when we got together, then we have Christmas, then it’s her birthday, my birthday, then Valentine’s Day. By the end of that whole thing, we’re exhausted – and broke!”
