Where do you guys get your funky vegan shoes from (especially boots!)? I've seen quite a few great sites, but I was blessed with size eleven feet and am finding it so difficult to find shoes that I like, that go above size ten.

Help a big-foot out!

I second this question so much, I'm thirding and fourthing it as well.

I really like Urban Original. You can search by size and they have tons of styles that come in your size. It's not really the place to shop for your eco-friendly/ethical wares, but it's very affordable and has a huge selection.

I just picked up a pair knee high boots made of "100% man made materials" at surprisingly (to me anyway) Aerosoles.

I wasn't expecting to find anything there because a few weeks ago I spent an entire evening at one of those big shoe warehouses and found nothing.

In general I have much better luck at places like Target or PayLess than the big stores.

Whoa. They're so cheap! It's a good thing I'm completely broke. I have a serious boot obsession. *makes mental note*

Beyond Skin has vegan women's shoes in large sizes: http://www.beyondskin.co.uk/

They're pretty expensive, so I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but I'm tempted. My PayLess shoes fall apart too fast.

Awesome-o! Thanks!

Yeah, I reckon it might be worth spending the cash on them, the ones I get from target etc fall apart SO quickly, 'cause i'm pretty much always wearing boots.

Right now I'm obsessed with finding a good quality pair of boots. But I cannot find anything that I love that's vegan. I so love Keen and Merell boots but nothing vegan matches the comfort and quality. What to do?!?!

If anyone has a brand or link to some please share! I feel like I looked everywhere!

I love Blowfish & Rocketdog shoes. Rocketdog has gorgeous, synthetic boots. I am not sure if they are 100% vegan but I seem to recall lots of praise on the old threads for both brands.

Yeah I saw some really cool blowfish ones, just gotta find somewhere i can source them without being hit by the huge shipping fee you get through their website...maybe amazon or something. I'll have to check out rocketdog too, thanks!

How comfortable are they? Are they good shoes?

I have some boots from Ara made of gore-tex, they're suuuuuuper comfy and still look new despite the fact that I wear them all the time. I bought them in Germany. Not the cheapest, but awesome.

Ebay. You can set the search criteria to only bring up things in your size made of synthetic materials.

I buy most of my shoes from Ebay but then I mainly wear Converse and luckily have the right size feet to pick up the pairs cheaply that teenage boys have worn twice and grown out of.

Hope you find what you want soon!
