Let me show you how easy it is to find vegan shoes for any occasion
Myth: “It’s not possible for vegans to find a variety of shoes. Their choices are so limited.”
I think shoes are like the flooring that finishes off a newly decorated room. You can do so much to a room but the new flooring completes it in a way that you wouldn’t expect. For this reason, I like to have a range of shoes, because I think they can make or break an outfit. They can also mean the difference between making an outfit look casual smart, bold and/or smart or elegant and chic.
The assumption about vegan shoes
When others have noticed my shoes, if they don't know how strongly I feel about only wearing vegan shoes, they often assume that they aren't vegan. This assumption is usually expressed like this: 'but your shoes aren't vegan are they?' or ‘I guess you eat vegan food but wear non-vegan clothes and shoes.’
For those who believe vegan shoes are available, they perceive them to be expensive, exclusive to certain stores and available in limited colours, styles and sizes.
The myth busting begins
As you’ll see below, I may have too many shoes. I haven’t included my boots and some other shoes in this article. Either way, what you will see is vegan shoes. Oh yes! They’re ALL vegan.
The shoes you’ll see below have not fallen apart quickly, they feel good, they’re comfortable, they are easy to clean, they look great and they're NOT expensive.

They are dressy, elegant, simple and yet striking. Positively different.

Easy to slip in and out of and they are comfy. These shoes are noticeable look because of the white sole which contrasts the upper part of the shoe.

A chunky heal that’s easy to walk in and a bit of decor at the front that will add a bit of jazz to any outfit.
These trainers are from Asics.
Asics only have a few trainers that aren’t multi-coloured. These are comfortable, good to wear for long walks and have a discrete casual smart look.
These blue heels are from New Look.
I love this colour combination, which makes the shoes stand out and adds a gorgeous finishing touch to a casual smart or even dressy outfit.
So what do you think? Are vegan shoes hard to find? Are they limited to specific stores? Are they boring and limited in terms of colour or design?
