So I want to buy a pair of flats, but everytime I find a cute and comfortable pair, I notice that they're leather. I found exactly what I want... does anyone know where I can find something almost identical to this cow-free?<br><br><br><br><a href="http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2926975/0~2376778~2372808~2372904~2375549?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=2375549&P=1" target="_blank">http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2926975/...bo=2375549&P=1</a><br><br><br><br>
or<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensAsSeenIn&BLC=WomensPromoAsSeenIn&Width=Regular&ItemCode=55575&LotNumber=052480&Type=Adult&Popularity=1401&DescriptiveColor=Black/Patent" target="_blank">These flats</a><br><br><br><br>
The second pair isn't cow, but they're cheap and killed my feet when I had them on for 10 seconds!<br><br><br><br>
Thanks!

earthvegan.us has cruelty free shoes. Actually some of them are kind of cute. I don't know if they are exactly what you are looking for. But there are some flats on that website. Or I would just go to google.com and search vegan shoes and stuff.<br><br><br><br>
good luck

If possible, I'd like to try on the shoe before I buy. I have so many problems with shoes! I know all department stores will have all leather. Target doesn't have what I'm looking for. Maybe I should try Kohl's. *shrugs* On my next day off (probably in June), I'll go and look.

Kohl's, especially Candie's brand, is perfect for shoes. Almost everything is synthetic, and pretty cheap.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.kohls.com/products/product_page_vanilla2.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=425383181&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=237196599&bmUID=1174257663728" target="_blank">http://www.kohls.com/products/produc...=1174257663728</a><br><br><br><br>
This looks like what you're looking for, however it's a floral print.<br><br><br><br>
You can look online, but they have much more of a variety in the store. I got my flats from there, and they're unbelievably comfortable and very cute. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Good luck!

I'm looking for solid black. I was at Kohl's yesterday and saw those. They had a few pairs of black, but didn't have my size. That store looks like a junk yard of shoes. I hate going in there. Our Kohl's is new and in a very nice location, but they don't keep it nice. When I tried that pair on (my Mom bought the last 7 in black), they were okay on comfort. I bet if they had half sizes, I could have purchased them.

I know, they are everywhere, but most of them are either leather or terribly uncomfortable. I found my size at Payless in 2 different shoes:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensAsSeenIn&BLC=WomensPromoAsSeenIn&Width=Regular&ItemCode=55575&LotNumber=052480&Type=Adult&Popularity=1324&DescriptiveColor=Black/Patent" target="_blank">These</a> and <a href="http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensAsSeenIn&BLC=WomensPromoAsSeenIn&Width=Regular&ItemCode=56176&LotNumber=053088&Type=Adult&Popularity=536&DescriptiveColor=Black" target="_blank">Pair #2</a><br><br><br><br>
They both looked adorable, but hurt my feet walking through an aisle. I really need to invest in some good quality ones because of my bad feet (from being a waitress for so many years) . I'm going to check this store in my mall today called "Reflection." They might have some (comfortable ones).

Have you looked at Zappos? Usually I can find something there (though not in the narrow sizes I need). I didn't see any black flats this time, though. They had green and bone flats, and these white low-heeled sandals that might look OK <a href="http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/4388466/c/14.html" target="_blank">http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/4388466/c/14.html</a>. Or might not. I usually ask friends about shoes.<br><br><br><br>
Mooshoes has these <a href="http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_variant.cgi?rm=edit&product_id=5094" target="_blank">http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_vari...roduct_id=5094</a><br><br><br><br>
and these <a href="http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_variant.cgi?rm=edit&product_id=166676" target="_blank">http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_vari...duct_id=166676</a><br><br><br><br>
and these way on sale (limited sizes) <a href="http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_variant.cgi?rm=edit&product_id=4896" target="_blank">http://www.mooshoes.com/invoice_vari...roduct_id=4896</a>

when i go to department stores, i always find shoes that are vegetarian in a variety of styles. department stores, DSW-type stores, all sorts of places.<br><br><br><br>
vegan shoes (that are inexpensive) are quite easy to find. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
and, those 'jelly shoes' from the 1980s are back. i'm thinking of getting a pair for 'old times sake.'

i love this site! it's such fun finding solutions for people! How about these shoes here - <a href="http://www.alternativeoutfitters.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1264" target="_blank">http://www.alternativeoutfitters.com...OD&ProdID=1264</a> from Alternative Outfitters. They have other ballet pumps that are similar.

I don't want order online because most shoes don't fit right. I ended up going back to Payless and finding a pair that is okay in terms of comfort. I went to a different department store and every single pair of flats were partially leather. Grrr!<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensAsSeenIn&BLC=WomensPromoAsSeenIn&Width=Regular&ItemCode=55003&LotNumber=049618&Type=Adult&Popularity=1326&DescriptiveColor=Black" target="_blank">I got these!</a>
