I thought I’d celebrate by showcasing some of the best vegan shoes out there. Now, while I’m not a vegetarian myself, I know a lot of you are and this is a post that quite a few people have requested that I do. If you’ve given up meat, chances are you’re also keen to give up leather if you haven’t already, but it’s not always easy to find vegetarian shoes that also have great design.
So thank heaven for Stella McCartney, whose GORGEOUS shoe designs have upped the anti as far as animal friendly footwear is concerned. She never uses leather but is a pioneer in finding materials that look and feel just as good. Her designs this season are a bit heavy on the flatform side for En Brogue for the most part, but there are a couple of really nice flats in there too.
If those are a little out of your price range, fear not! I have some more options for you. How about this lovely French brand called Good Guys? None of their shoes are made from leather and the designs are really cool. Plus they’ve gone to the trouble of shooting with a lovely tiled background as well. Good work!
Another good bet for veggie shoes is brands that specialise in rubber. These skate shoes from Melissa are available at Selfridges and are made from 100% recycled rubber. So they’re good for the environment in more ways than one! Plus they’re really cute, too. #winning
