Vegan Boots & Shoes

I always have the WORST time finding professional, good-looking dress shoes that are vegan.  So does my husband.  This week we both found shoes we are very happy with.

My husband's shoe is the JUSTIN, available at Mooshoes.com. It comes in brown and black.

My shoe is the "WOMEN'S CHOICE" by LifeStride, available at shoes.com.  It comes in dark brown, light brown, and black.

At shoes.com, you can type in "vegetarian" in the search area and get their non-leather shoes.  At zappos.com, they have a vegetarian shoes link on the right side of the screen.

Hope someone finds this helpful!

Well bless her little cotton socks!  Natalie Portman has announced that she is releasing a line of vegan shoes in conjunctuion with Te Casan.

I was waiting for something like this to happen!  Not necessarily her, but someone with the time, money and effort to design NICE shoes that are cruelty free.  Well...hopefully they're nice.

Like I needed another reason to love Natalie Portman! I also hope these shoes are affordable, because if so I'll definitely grab a pair when needed (or just wanted). ;D

Oh no I have a red shoe addiction, that I have not been able to satisfy since transitioning into veganism!  Those look cute

That's neat!  Although when I heard this I got all excited by the idea that Natalie Portman had gone vegan.  Nope.  She just likes cruelty-free clothes.  Which is good too, but...meh... ???

Anyway I can't wait to see what they all look like!  Pretty neat  ;D

She is veggie.  Yay to her for doing such a cool thing.
I bet they cost like, hundreds of dollars though. :(

Excitement!!!!
I love the Natalie Portman, and I sometimes wear shoes!

I'll start saving my pennies now, because those cruelty free footsiewears often do cost a little more than your first born.  They should start making shoes out of infants....

I've gotta wonder just how "cruelty-free" these shoes will be.  Will the manufacturers be paid a living wage?  have fair working conditions and hours?  or will it be more of a sweatshop operation, like the majority of shoe companies?

I've only just checked te casan's site, and I keep reading about their "vision" involving interaction between different cultures and countries...doesn't say WHAT kind of interaction that is, though...

Typically, things that are made by a famous person and also have a percentage of the purchase going to a fund of some sort cost a little more than the average product.
I think infant shoes sound like a fascinating idea... oh Fee.... whatever will I do with you?

How 'bout out of aborted embryos and fetuses?  You know who'd help supply the shoemakers?

Were there pictures of her shoe line on that website?....Or was I just totally blind and didn't see them.  I expected to see some since the pre-order date was 1/15.

I just saw a hot picture of her in red pumps.  I think it's all a tease.

The other, non-vegan shoes from that company all seem to be around $250-$300, so I think it is  a safe guess that these will be pretty similar in price.

I have a summer job at the moment and have been working since May. Just recently I have had the need for steel toed work boots. I had no Idea I was to wear these when I applied, and I haven't had the need for them.

I was wondering if anyone could recomend a good pair that is vegan. I have found several pairs on the net, but my feet are so small. The boots I am borrowing are a size four in mens(still huge, even with a thick extra sole and thick socks, not to mention leather, bah!). :(

I usually wear a size four to five in womens(even some threes), a size three in mens I think (or would that be boys?). 

I feel awfu; having to wear these boots at work, and I hope some one could halp me out. My work place will pay me back up to a hundred dollars for boots purchaes so that is all good.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hmmm.. Have you thought about second-hand (unvegan leather) boots, like from the goodwill?  I haven't been able to locate any steel-toed vegan boots online...so far.

Maybe those will work!?

Thanks I will take a look at the sites.

I would rather not wear leather, but if I have to I will search there. The Goodwill store in the next town over is kind of rappy I guess one could say. I have to dig around to find anything, but perhaps it will not be in vain.

The vegan shoes may be expensive, but I am sure they are worth it.

You can try www.redwingshoe.com.  They have a large selection of work boots... I don't know which, if any, are made of synthetic materials.

I would not buy used as part of the function of the boot is electrical resistance which wears down with time.

If you find a boot, would you mind sharing/doing a review here.  I wear a steel toe and my current pair is leather...  :-[
