Anyone know where I can find all the stores in the NYC metro area that sell quality mock-leather shoes, or any shoes that I can wear in the office with my business suit?<br><br><br><br>
I know about Moo Shoes. and I know a few mail-order places. But I need some NYC area stores. Vocational rehab has agreed to pay for clothing i need to improve my success at job interviews. Thus I thought of wearing leather-look shoes with my business suit, instead of black or blue canvas sneakers. But only stores on their approved list can I buy from. I'm hoping to find a store on their list that is also on my veg list.

I would think NYC would definitely have some places you could go to to get non-leather professional shoes. What about emailing Moo Shoes and asking them if they have any ideas or if they can connect you with someone else that can help?<br><br><br><br>
I'm in Colorado and I don't buy leather either ... I end up getting cheap shoes at places like Payless Shoes ... they are cheap and don't last long but I can't afford the nicer kinds ... I wonder if you have Payless shoes out in New York? You could get some non-leather men's prof. shoes pretty cheap.<br><br><br><br>
Good Luck!

Off topic as far as NYC goes, but since you mention PayLess, which is pretty much all over, maybe it'll help soilman, too. I was in PayLess here in Florida yesterday, and it seemed to me that most of their "business" type shoes were leather. Really, their selection for men seems pretty weak, even for people who do wear leather. They did seem to have some decent non-leather sneakers, though I wasn't 100% sure that certain parts weren't leather.<br><br><br><br>

Payless is pretty useless. They rarely have canvas sneakers. Their mock-leather shoes are always cheap plastic that doesn't breathe and makes your feet sweaty, smelly, and itchy.<br><br><br><br>
To get decent mock-leather office shoes, you have to pay a premium price for Lorica or similar breathable material. We are talking about shelling out at least $90, probably closer to $150.
