Vegan Shoes for Cheap!

The following was written by Christy Hall, a PETA intern.

So I’m sure all of us are guilty of putting our feet into a cow’s corpse at some point in our lives. YUCK. Fortunately, there are some really awesome and affordable skin-free shoes on the market today. Let’s face it; you can’t look hot when you’re walking around in a dead animal. GROSS.

Sometimes, nice vegan shoes can be a bit pricy. If you’re like me, you aren’t exactly makin’ it rain dolla bills. That’s OKAY! You can be vegan and hot on a budget. Here are some of my favorite finds as of late:

Oxfords are my current obsession, and gojane.com is da ish for fly vegan versions of this super cute trend! All of their shoes are extremely affordable and most are made from all man made materials (just be sure to check)! I like to rock these sparkly babies out shopping, when I’m in the office/at school, or when I’m hittin’ the town. They are so versatile and surprisingly comfortable—and omg, supah cheap. I’m talkin’ like under $17, fools!

If you haven’t checked out lulu’s vegan shoe section, you have def been missing out. While they are slightly more expensive than gojane.com, they are still relatively affordable. And if you’re looking for hot heels, this is the place to turn to.

Can you see a trend here? (hipsters beware!) This girl is all about sparkles right now! Glittery shoes can make you go from drab to fab instantly! If sparkles aren’t yo’ thang, no worries! They have a huge selection, and there is something for everyone!

Lately, I’ve been trying to get my run on. (OK, brisk walk… what do you want from me?!) So, I went on a hunt for some new athletic shoes. Honestly, I was a tad worried I wouldn’t find any that were made without an animal having to die for them to be produced. Then I discovered the world of Payless. HOLY SHIT! It’s an affordable vegan’s paradise! I snagged these bad boys that were made from all man made materials and I’ve been running walking my ass off ever since. 😉

What are some of your favorite places to shop for vegan shoes?

    I buy my shoes from any superstore or local store and make sure to check the labels. :)

    I like Alternative Outfitters, it has a great selection, especially for harder to find things like vegan dress shoes.

      Why do people think TOM’s are vegan? The inner soles are leather.

        You’re right.
        You CAN get them vegan, though. They have a foam padding instead, but they don’t last. The sole’s off my friend’s fell off within a week of having them. Though for a great cause, I would not suggest them.
