I'm always on the lookout for great vegan shoes. I don't wear leather as wearing a dead animal on my feet repulses me just as much as the thought of eating one. I have a bit of a dilemma as well-fitting, pretty and affordable vegan shoes are not easy to find in England, as I mentioned here before. As much as I enjoy studying Interior & Spatial Design, why, oh why didn't I choose to study fashion design and specialise in footwear?! There is such a gap in the market for reasonably priced, attractive vegan footwear! Mark my words: this niche will take off in the next few years.
Anyway, this is a round-up of some of my favourite non-leather shoes. Most are out of my budget, but they're pretty. I've convinced myself that I need the navy Crocs slip-ons for the spring. Crocs = walking on air, and these ones are cute, right?

2 Beyond Skin "Gloria" heels, £112 (originally £160)
