Vegan Shoes round-up

26 Feb 2010

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?

1 Cri de Coeur "Kate" sandals, £42.50 (originally £95)
2 Beyond Skin "Gloria" heels, £112 (originally £160)
3 Green Shoes "Willow" shoe, £106
4 Green Shoes "Lovage" sandal, £60
5 Crocs "Lady" slip on, £24.95
6 Beyond Skin "Sole", exclusively for Anthropologie, £35 (originally £65)

I have a pair of vegan heels and I love em! My favorites are #1 & #6. Those flats are so cute!

the flats are really cute, but it does seem like there is a gap in the market.

You're so right- I'm not a vegetarian, but I think its so hypocritical to condemn meat and fur but not leather!

Great choices. I got the Cri De Coeur sandals recently and they are gorgeous.

Hi there!

Just a note to let you know that we're now making most of our boots and shoes in Lorica, the vegan leather.

Mainly we make more 'alternative' styles, but please have a look, there's probably something you'll like...

Have a great day.
