Impress your friends with your cruelty free shoe collection this spring and summer and show them that fashion can easily be compassionate. It’s all about choices and we make it simple for you to wear the latest styles without the guilt of leather. One of our favorite vegan sandals this season is the Haarp Vegan Wedge by Madden Girl. An intricate geometric laser cut design makes these fashion forward sandals pop. You’ll love the faux wood wedge heel with faux leather cap and the gorgeous cognac color makes these vegan sandals the perfect versatile pair. They’ll look stunning with a bold colored mini dress or your favorite pair of cut off jeans and a simple tank.


It’s not all about height with these adorable flat vegan sandals. The Mel Fresh IV Black Vegan Flats combine comfort and unique style for the ultimate slip on summer shoe. A trendy d’orsay design is completed with a perfect red vinyl heart and the peep toe will show off your favorite shade of cruelty free nail polish. We think these vegan sandals would look smart dressed up or down and will look sweet with those heart shaped sunnies you’ve been dying to wear.


Cork is eco friendly, light weight and a great choice of material for this semi-dressy wedge. The Nautic Natural Vegan Wedge Sandals offer a simple design with lots of texture for a fun look. We love the criss cross macrame straps and the gold tone studs are the perfect accent. So easy to slip off for a quick dip in the pool. Pair these darlings with a simple sundress and an over sized straw hat.

When choosing to forego leather for a more compassionate lifestyle you don’t need to give up looking good or keeping with the trends.  Faux leather (also called vegan leather) is usually made from polyurethane and can be made to resemble patent leather, textured leather, smooth leather etc.  Why would a vegan or vegetarian want their bag to look like it’s made from animals?  Once people realize that handbags, shoes and accessories can be made with out the use of animal skins and furs but still illicit that sense of style they may be likely to make the switch.  So carrying a stylish bag that may get you compliments can be a way to start a conversation with people who may not know the benefits of ditching their leather goods.  And of course there will always be that situation where you mention you’re vegan and someone feels the need to point out you’re wearing “leather”.

Vegan leather has a come a long way since it’s days as “pleather”, a word which makes most people cringe and think of cheap quality and a plastic-like look.  Take a look at some of our featured vegan bags below.
