I just thought I would paste this info here since they replied. They have a few cool lines, and they are totally recycled I guess. Only two of them aren't vegan.

Dear *****,



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!



Regards,

Donald

Subject: Vegan?





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.

'end footwear' (stop wearing shoes).... like 'end violence against lettuces!'- (don't eat lettuces) or 'end confusion!' (stop being confused). i think he's making a joke about the brand name.
