Finding vegaetarian shoes for kids is not too much of a problem, but now we need to find black school shoes - the cheap plastic ones from woolworths have already worn through to the fabric base after only 4 days! Green Shoes in Totnes do stuff to order, but they are a bit hippy - I like them, but being called Sunny Angel and being vegan gives him enough to deal with at school as it is!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br>
Any suggestions?

Had the following reply from the Vegan Society:<br><br><br><br><i>Hi Paul<br><br><br><br>
Here is a link to an article of kids shoes. Hope it helps!<br><br><br><br>
<a href="http://activeg.org/articles/432.html" target="_blank">activeg.org/articles/432.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Kind regards<br><br><br><br>

And this from Vegetarian Shoes:<br><br><br><br><i>"Hello<br><br><br><br>
We used to do children's shoes but found that they didn't sell very well and they were quite pricey and unfortunately our staff in the shop are not trained kids shoe fitters which proved to be a lot of hassle.<br><br><br><br>
And BHS synthetic shoes are vegan and use rubber glue as do some of Shoezone shoes, which you can find on the high street.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for your interest and good luck!<br><br><br><br>
Regards<br><br>
Vegetarian Shoes"</i><br><br><br><br>
In the end I went to a shop in bournemouth yesterday and bought some shoes by US Brass, which are all synthetic and today's scuffing showed that they are a lot tougher! I'll be returning the rubbish ones to Woolies...<br><br><br><br>
and just now i found this: search for 'veganline' and you'll find it too.<br><br><br><br>
End of line.
