I've been wearing the same pair of suede Puma's for the past 7 or 8 years and as much as I love them, they're kind of gross and it's time to replace them with a vegan pair. I checked Puma's website and all their shoes have animal products, so that's out. I'm looking for a pair of black or dark coloured casual sneakers or shoes, something non-athletic looking that I can wear with jeans and a hoodie. Any suggestions?

these are basically the most comfortable shoes in the world. i don't know if they are too athletic looking, but i love mine. i have to get some new ones because of the dreaded toe hole, but they are great!

I didn't know you could get the Saucony Jazz Low Pros or Onitsuka Tigers for women! My husband loves both.

Onitsuka Tigers are excellent - very durable & lots of vegan options in styles like the Ultimate 81 & Sakurada; athletic-ish in a retro way so go well with jeans etc. never owned the vegan Saucony Jazz 'cos everyone I know who has said they fall apart very quickly.

If you're after retro Puma kicks, they did in 2012 bring out a vegan-friendly version of their classic Suede style, made from recycled materials & called the Re-Suede. I believe they have discontinued the shoe but you may still find them online. You need to be careful though as the Re-Suede just says 'Suede' on the shoe & looks very realistic so the 2 styles are easy to confuse.

I loved the Onitsuka Tigers except their sole seemed to wear out pretty fast on mine.

I tried the vegan Saucony Jazz but they made my feet really hot.

How about Inov-8s? everyone will think you are athletic and they are comfy. Most Inov-8s are vegan.

i bought my boyfriend a pair of saucony originals. the first pair we bought in his size - to snug. we went up a size bigger - still to small. i think that it is a problem for the brand - just a warning.

i am still looking for a pair of gym shoes for him. he is so picky...

I used to have a pair of saucony runners that lasted me a long time, but I'm sure every style they make is going to fit differently, I might order a pair or those, they look comfy.
I love the look of the Onitsuka Tigers! But alas, it doesn't look like they sell them in Canada :(

Looks like I can get them on Amazon! I want to order these ones Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81 Sneaker but the description says "leather or textile", think I should risk it in hopes that the ones I want don't have leather? Has anyone else ordered these?

zappos says the ultimate 81 has an all-vegan upper.

All the colours on that Amazon page are synthetic/textile.

Technically any pair of 'Ultimate 81' shoes should be vegan, as the leather version of the shoe is officially known as the 'Ultimate 81LE'. The problem is that some websites don't distinguish between the 2 different styles so they will tell you that they sell Ultimate 81s with leather uppers. A related issue (that Zappos are guilty of last time I checked) is just assuming that a shoe that looks like leather is real leather, when a quick look at the label would show clearly the shoe is synthetic.

^ spot the loser who spends far too much time thinking about vegan sneakers!

My favorite right now are Macbeth. A lot of their shoes are vegan (and the ones that are are clearly labeled.. no confusion).

I just bought these Keep shoes. They may not be super sporty sneakers, but I love them so much.
