i am kind of in the planning stages for a vegan shoe company that would predominantly use synthetics initially. the goal is to make being cruelty free easier for the teen-youth demographic. the shoes would be designed with casual styles that are already popular among youth in mind (high-top sneakers, etc.). down the road i'd hope to use hemp for a line, at some point i'd also like to be able to make non-leather sports items that i've found aren't too abundant like cleats and gloves and such.

i'm just wondering if using synthetics would push people from this board away from the idea. comments?

Most of my shoes are made from synthetic material, since I'm vegan. I would rather wear synthetic shoes than cow skin shoes. Best of luck with your potential business! Please let us know when you get the company off the ground.

That's really cool. I don't know if you've thought of this but, it would be cool if you could also consider the manufacturing conditions - if the shoes were sweatshop-free, they'd be perfect!
