One of the largest selections of quality, durable shoes.
They don’t offer a large selection of accessories.
A great choice for any type of shoes, from dress to boots.
Vegetarian Shoes is a very well-known and established vegan (despite being called vegetarian) shoes store. They have been offering ethical vegan shoes all the way back since 1990, when robin Webb started making vegan shoes by hand as a self-taught shoemaker. From these humble beginning, Vegetarian Shoes (still remaining a small business) now operate their Brighton (UK) shop, while shipping off their rich catalog of shoes and other vegan products all over the world.
At Vegetarian Shoes you’ll find a variety of shoes for all seasons and purposes, including flats, boots, sandals, dress and business shoes along with casual and sports shoes. Vegetarian Shoes manufacture and design great looking shoes and are meticulous regarding their quality. Their materials not only look like leather and suede, but they feel great and they “breath”.
They offer very nice looking Birkenstock-style sandals that are usually not easy to come by. They also offer a very wide range of women’s boots in many styles and colors, which feel great and are highly comfortable
If you’re looking for dress shoes, meaning stylish high-heel shoes (or even elegant low-heel business shoes) then the selection is pretty narrow. You will, however, find very elegant looking boots in various heights and colors.
In the outdoors department, Vegetarian Shoes is an undisputed champion, offering a wide range of excellent walking shoes, hiking boots, while if you’re looking for sports shoes you’ll find a nice selection of well-built, colorful footwear.
Overall, it seems that Vegetarian Shoes focus on shoes that are a bit more comfortable and sturdy than on being chic. If you want high quality day-to-day shoes that look good, feel good and that will last a long time then you’ve come to the right place.
Vegetarian Shoes offer beautiful satchels in 10 different colors, so there’s no doubt you’ll find one that you like. The satchels are made from vegetan Bucky, a breathable microfiber that ages like leather and looks and feels great. Other accessories include elegant belts, gloves, insoles and more.
This is where Vegetarian Shoes really shines through. With a huge selection of all types of shoes for men, and with great designs to boot (pun!), they offer some of the best looking vegan dress shoes, with classic styles that are always a great choice. Their forte also lies in vegan boots, from ankle-low to almost knee-high boots, they are both elegant and sturdy and well-built. Perfect for work and for kicking things without hurting your foot.
If you’re looking for sports shoes, you’ll find great outdoors shoes for hiking, climbing and other sports that require quality shoes that can withstand the terrain and last. Their outdoors shoes are very reasonably priced. If you’re a runner, however, you probably won’t find any worthwhile pro running shoes, since this isn’t Vegetarian Shoes’ forte.
The sneakers section is rich with great-looking designs that look like real leather and suede and they feel good on the legs too. They breath and adjust to the shape and size of the leg, making them very comfortable and always a good fit.
You can find some very nice belts, mostly in black and suitable for work or even for more special occasions. The kind of belts that everyone needs at least one of, because they are all-purpose belts.
You’ll also find classic satchels in a multitude of colors (10 to be exact), which are great for work, carrying your laptop, tablets and papers (who uses paper?) around comfortably.
Some other accessories include excellent leather-like wallets, insoles and shoe polish.
