Those rollie shoes are boss. I'm sure there's a way to add wheels to some cute platforms. Ask a fashion major art student? /went to art school

Does anyone know of retro-ish sneaker brands that are vegan? Converse is I believe, but I loooooove these sneakers by Gola, but they have suede in them. So sad :(


I'm currently digging the casual/minimalist line from the DVS skate company. Rocking a pair of these right now:

Much comfier than the likes of Converse as there's a proper insole & all canvas shoes DVS make are certified vegan.

i would also need a cabinet maker or something. you can't tell from the picture i posted, but that little knobby thing on the side retracts the wheels into hollow spaces in the platform, so you can walk around in them like regular shoes until you need to make your speedy getaway.

I love these shoes for many reasons. (1) They're vegan. (2) They look comfy as all get out. (3) They're Vans, which makes my middle school self squee in glee. (4) And they are the most hipster looking shoes in existence. So, obviously I must get them.

Yes they do. There's a women's version of the Rehab in various colours e.g.

I just broke down and bought my first pair of Toms. Because my WF started carrying them and I didn't have to pay for shipping and because I just got a second job at night and I'm gonna be on my feet and my shoes have to be close toed.

They are awesome! And now I want them in red, tan, and grey. There goes my new paycheck!

I never see vegan solid colors from them- only the "Earthwise" dark grey and a couple metallics. It's like every time they decide on a crazy pattern they say "Well obviously we'll make those for the vegans".

I also wish they would make some vegan flats and wedges!

Um, yeah I'm heart broken cause I just realized (like 2 seconds ago) that my new Toms aren't vegan. I feel super stupid and pissed at the same time. So they are going back to the store :o(

I went on the site to look at the other vegan options and realized that mine weren't there?? And then the D'oh moment hit me!

Ohh, I'm sorry. :( I don't know why they don't make more vegan ones. Is a leather lining inside a fabric shoe that important?

I just got excited about a patterned pair before realizing they weren't vegan. I think I got lost on the website somehow? I started in the right section!

I just got some flats I ordered from Beyond Skin. I was a little nervous ordering shoes all the way from the UK, but they are really cute and nice quality! They run a little bit narrow (I'm a 9 US and got a size 40), bit I'm hoping the will stretch out a little.

I got these by the way. http://www.beyondskin.co.uk/Beyond-Skin ... d_528.html They included a cute fabric tote as well!

They let me exchange them for a vegan pair!!

I wish they gave you an option of which insert you wanted.

omg OMG!

I FINALLY found an alternative to TOMS (crepe development plan but sooo comfy)

enter...INDOSHOES!

- vegan
- fair trade and employment conditions (as opposed to coming in and putting shoe-makers out of business by giving away shoes)
- sole made from repurposed motorcycle tires to keep them from the landfill!

Just ordered them online...sooo hope they fit...!!!

These sound GREAT! I really need to get a new pair of comfy flats for walking/teaching/etc. Definitely post here when you get them about how they fit and feel!

Not entirely sure how many things the wedge would match or how I feel about the wedge exactly...

anyone have a pair of big buddha shoes? are they comfy at all? just for reference: www.zappos.com/Big-Buddha

i feel like there are a ton of cute shoes that just happen to be vegan that are usually cheap, hurt, and don't hold up. i'm afraid these fall into that category.. anyone have any experience with them?

Does anyone know where to get a pair of Chelsea boots? I feel like I saw a pair on here once, but can't seem to again. I really want them for fall!

Vegetarian shoes has some plain black ones. I think other people have posted fancier ones, though.
