fancy footwork: our favorite vegan shoes
In the realm of eco-friendly clothing, some items are more challenging to find than others — shoes are the toughest. But amidst an oceans’ worth of hippie-mom clogs and straw flip flops, we’ve found a few brands of vegan shoes that are nice to the planet and nice-looking on your feet. Here are four that we love.
Stella’s an edgy designer, and champion of animals, a rarity in the mainstream fashion industry. Her shoes combine synthetic materials with high-fashion design – a combination that makes us very happy.
This UK brand lives up to their tagline, “Fashion with compassion,” by using high-quality materials that always promise to be “better than leather.”
This brand puts out a host of trendy silhouettes (gladiator sandals! wedges! oxfords!) in synthetic materials – and more are very budget-friendly. If you want to splurge, there’s the occasional designer collaboration, such as these booties by Olsen Haus.
