A new comment has made me spring back to life.

Yay. That is so sweet. Some comments of late have made me realize that people are still looking and failing to find vegan shoes, and as Ingrid Newkirk, the founder of PETA says, ONE can make a difference (that’s the name of a book she wrote). So with that in mind, I am going to update you all on some good new vegan shoes that have become available, while I’ve been Out Of Commission.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Forever 21 is the BEST source for cool vegan shoes on the web. Unfortunately they are what I call “unintentionally vegan” because they do not have animals interests at the forefront and are not a vegan company, however they have great styles and I almost never see leather used in any of their shoes. When there is leather in a shoe it is marked in the title as Leather or Suede, as far as I know. I saw 2 shoes out of hundreds that were real leather. I think this is mostly in the interest of keeping their costs low though, as opposed to some sort of awareness of the Leather Industry, but at least it means all their shoes are extremely cheap.
If only Forever 21 were a vegan shoe company, vegans would have a great resource for affordable, cool vegan shoes but at the same time, they’d know their money was supporting a company with the interests of animals in mind. Maybe this fantasy company could even work towards educating people about the leather industry and giving part of their money to animal rights causes.
Well, here are the shoes.
I will simply post some photos of the shoes I like with links to their page on Forever 21.
Tell me what you think of the shoes/ this post in the comments as I LOVE to hear from commenters. I’d love to know, what would your ideal vegan shoe company look like?
