Get a Kick Outta These Vegan Shoes

Table of Contents

When we turned vegan back in 2015, sourcing a good pair of vegan shoes was difficult. And finding different kinds of vegan shoes for different occasions was near impossible. Canvas shoes it was then, for everything.

Fortunately, vegan shoes have come a LONG way since then. We can even safely say that we are spoilt for choice in 2021!

There are a bunch of incredible 100% vegan shoe brands making anything from sandals, to trainers, and high heels. And there are also plenty of non-vegan companies bringing out vegan versions of their popular footwear.

We are going to take you through our favourite brands, vegan and vegan-friendly. Don’t worry, you won’t be seeing any unethical ‘vegan-friendly’ brands here (naming no names)!

Vegan Shoes

FAQs

What are vegan shoes?

A vegan shoe is one which isn’t made of any animal-based materials, nor are any animal by-products used in the manufacturing of them.

Many shoe brands still rely heavily upon animal products like leather and suede to create their footwear. Moreover, some companies still even use animal-based glues to build their shoes.

What shoe brands are vegan?

There are now loads of 100% vegan shoes brands. Here are the top vegan shoe brands:

  • Flamingo’s Life
  • 8000KICKS
  • Matt & Nat
  • Will’s Vegan Shoes
  • Hylo
  • Nae Vegan
  • Avesu
  • Koi Footwear
  • VEERAH

Discover these vegan brands and more below!

Do vegan shoes last?

Much like non-vegan shoes, it depends on the quality of the materials and the manufacturing. 

So expect to get a vegan shoe that lasts longer the more you spend.

Some vegan-friendly materials that are used in shoes and are incredibly durable are:
– mushroom leather
– grape leather
– cactus leather

You may find that some cheaper vegan shoes which are made using plastics will wear easily, and they are bad for the planet! Which is why we recommend buying the shoes below.
