    Thought it would be good to have a thread about vegan shoes.

    I just bought the vegan doc marten. I haven't worn them much yet, so will report back when I have.
    They look good though, & so far, seem comfortable.

    I'd like to get some good quality walking boots with a Goretex lining at some point.
    The choice is very limited ATM though.

    I've been wanting some docs for ages. I WILL have some.

    They're supposedly very uncomfortable until they're worn in. Seems you've been lucky. :D

    Possibly not, as I've only worn them around the house so far, the real test is tomorrow....

    UK/US might be different but
    I know that in the UK:

    Rocketdog shoes are vegan. They do make leather ones BUT if their shoes/boots are synthetic uppers then the glue is animal free.

    Ironfist-Vegan glues

    Irregular Choice have a vegan range

    And I have reason to believe a brand called Marco Tozzi is vegan. I bought some boots by that name on a website called Boheme or somethng like that and they told me they only sell 100% vegan items. I guess its a trust thing but the boots were amazing!

    What about Toms? I'm sure I heard they are vegan. Or is that wrong?

    ^ I have some by Bourgeois Boheme and they are very well made.

    I bought some sandals from Alternative Stores the other month and they were very cheap but I haven't worn them yet actually so I don't know how hardwearing they are yet.

    Whats Toms?

    Do BB have their own label?

    I do keep emailing shops and places but I rarely get replies. I have some Gothy style shoes from a company called Inamagura but they are hard to get these days :confused:

    Bourgeois Boheme I thought they had their own high street stores too but I'm not sure.

    I have no idea. I found the boots completely by random

    I'm still in the market for vegan shoes, but I haven't found any that I like yet.

    I've bought trainers from the vegetarian shoe shop in Brighton before (also available online) but to be honest, most of their shoes are not to my taste. I don't really have the money to spend £100 on a pair so I bought some normal trainers last time... I'm not sure how likely it is that they will have vegan glues. Next time I will look into the brands mentioned here.

    Hmm I was awarded the 2011 Imelda Marcos Award for having over seventy pairs of vegan shoes. :oops:

    LOL - I used to get that award, but I have pared down to about half a dozen. Never thought that would happen - I had such a love affair with shoes.

    Capstan!

    I like the tread on those - I will have to keep those boots in mind - probably more acceptable for winter errands than my mucky barn boots. :p

    I have purchased a few pairs of Sanita vegan shoes at a good price from an eBay seller who apparently bought up a boatload of Sanita salesmen samples. Lucky for me, my shoe size is the size that they use for samples.

    I have 3 pairs of J-41s (two of which are sandals), 2 pairs of Danskos, and one pair of Tom's for my basic shoe wardrobe. I supplement with cheap flip-flops, man-made boots, fabric heels and non-leather sandals.
