Ten vegan shoe brands not tailored to hippies
We all know the look. Boho is in right now, granted, but not everyone wants a look that screams “I wear natural deodorant and go to ecstatic dances”.
While there is nothing inherently wrong with either of these things, or the hippy esthetic, it’s simply not the vibe all shoppers are looking for.
Rest-assured, there are vegan shoe options for those who want something different. The following 10 brands are not only ethically made and vegan, but a perfect fit for those looking to avoid that earth-child esthetic.
No matter what kind of sneaker you seek, Ethletics has you covered.
A great substitute for Converse’s classic Chuck Taylors, the brand offers canvas shoes in a variety of bright and basic colours.
