Thank you for your email and interest in END. With a few exceptions, our
line is vegan by design. We do not test our products on animals (though
many of us take Henry, the office dog, along when we're testing products,
but he seems to like the exercise). We specifically use only synthetic
leathers and water based glues, which is where most other companies stray
from vegan ideals. The exceptions are:
M Stumptown (leather mid-cut boot)
M & W Cross- Strap and Trail Thong (leather upper sandals)
These are still made with our standard water-based glues, but do use actual
leather in the uppers.
I hope this helps!

I was wondering if any of your product line was vegan. I'm quite
interested in your company, but am not willing to contribute to the
use of animal products.
Other than the obvious outer materials, do you use a glue that has
been produced using animal products? The footbed?
Thanks for any and all information.
