Vegan shoes and reviews?
 
Hello everyone!
I was wondering if anyone has tried the brand, "Vegetarian Shoes". I have been looking at them, but I was trying to find reviews of the boots and shoes they sell, but can't find anything.
Also, has anyone tried the "Rawganic" website for vegan shoes? I'm just trying to figure out what to replace my non vegan shoes with, hopefully someone knows a good, durable brand?
Thanks! 😺

I bought some running shoes from the Merrell brand over two years ago. Have worn them almost daily since I got them and they're still in very good condition.

I agree that Merrells are very comfortable and durable shoes. Other brands that have comfortable/healthy for your feet shoes and have a vegan line are Dansko and Sanita. I have also heard Jambu spoken of highly.


Again, these brands are not all or even primarily vegan, but they do each have a limited line of vegan shoes.

That sounds like something i should weite reviews on. Wishing you the best. But the truth is that there are plenty of brands that sell vegan shoes. My rule of thumb is looking for low cost brands because they usually cant afford to use real animal products.

The low cost ones may not use leather (although there are really inexpensive leather shoes available), but there is no telling what's in the glues. It depends whether that's important to you or not.

I just got a pair of these a few months ago for walking. They are super comfy and seem to be holding up well :)

Thanks everyone for your input, it's really fun to look for vegan shoes. I've found it hard to find reviews for the shoes I mentioned, but I will definitely look into these on here!

I have the Vegetarian Shoes steel toe-capped work boots. I found them very hard on my feet for two or three weeks, rubbing a little on the heel, but once properly broken in they are really comfy and I wear them 8 hours a day quite happily. I'm on the lookout for a nice pair of vegan biker boots if anyone has any tips!

Thanks! I know, I find it hard to find vegan shoes because I like the air cushioned soles on my old boots.
I tried many shoes, and I can't find any in person that aren't a cheap knockoff, and I'm not sure are 100% vegan. Thats why when I saw Vegetarian Shoes, I thought it was the best of both worlds. I just didn't want to jump in head first without researching.
I think its worth it in the end.
