The First Step


Most people know that wearing fur is horribly cruel and super-tacky, but what about all the animals who are killed for leather bags, belts and shoes? More than a “byproduct” of the meat industry, leather causes suffering to billions of animals every year, and YOU can help stop it.

In collaboration with our friends at Macbeth Footwear, we’re asking you to “take the first step” and help end the suffering of countless sheep, cows, pigs, and other animals who are used by the leather industry.

See which peta2 bands are taking “The First Step”!

We’re beyond stoked to announce that we’ve teamed up with our longtime friends Macbeth to release the first-ever peta2 signature vegan shoe—the “Gatsby!”

    They all look a little like men’s shoes. Also, no running shoes that have an arch. My feet have a high arch and flat shoes kinda hurt.

    I think if they stopped selling it as ‘leather’ and marketed it as what it is – cow’s skin, less people would wear it. Wearing someone elses skin seems gross to me :/
    Cute shoes! I love wearing grey.

    I have a problem called I want to buy some shoes, but I can’t find a sizing chart! I don’t know if I’m ordering a men’s or women’s size, and I’m pretty sure I won’t fit into a men’s 6. Can anyone help me out? :33
