I know somewhere out there there are vegan shoes.

Has anyone ever bought any vegan shoes?

What websites do you use to buy them?

 

Some sites I have found are:

http://www.mooshoes.com/

http://veganshoes.com/

http://www.zappos.com [Zappos has a ton of shoes]

 

I may buy a pair as a present.

So far I've not found any styles I like in any of the vegan shoe shops in the UK.

I just buy from general shoe shops and check the labels to ensure no part of the shoe is made with leather. The ones made from 'textiles' or other materials' (all of which are vegan).

This page tells you what the symbols mean:

Vegan shoes can be harder because it's not just about avoiding leather, but even the smaller materials and glues often have animal origins. Almost never safe to go with any old shoe unless it has a vegan certification. These can be very hard to find, depending on your location. Sometimes, internet shopping is the only way to go.

Here's a list of several websites for shoes and other clothing.

http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk/

http://www.veganline.com/

http://www.herbivoreclothing.com/

http://www.mooshoes.com/

http://www.freerangers.co.uk/

http://www.allveganshopping.com/

http://www.paganae.net/

I know there are others out there too. These are only the sites I am mainly acquainted with.

Also, rock bands like Rise Against and Blink 182 have come out with vegan shoe lines which are definitely worth checking out and are easier to find at local retailers (depending on your location).

Cheers. :)

I have a pair of vegan saucony shoes. They are really nice.
