The Best Vegan Shoes for Work

Since it’s now been a couple of years since we last shared some recommendations for non-leather shoes, it’s time for another roundup of the best vegan shoes for work. (Prior to that post, we also recommended six brands for the stylish vegan professional, for both clothing and accessories.) The brands below offer many casual styles, but they also provide office-appropriate options that include flats, pumps, oxfords, loafers, boots, and booties. What are your favorite vegan shoe and accessory brands? Are you able to buy them from mainstream sites/stores or do you have to get them from more specialized places?

Here are five brands that offer some of the best vegan shoes for work: 

BC Footwear

Available at Nordstrom and Amazon, as well as, these shoes are cruelty-free and PETA-certified as vegan. In addition to not using leather for the main part of each shoe, the company also ensures that all components (linings, etc.) are not made from animal products — and that includes the glue, which is free from casein, gelatin, beeswax, etc. BC Footwear uses uses materials such as microfiber, bamboo, hemp, and high-grade polyurethane, and shoes in its Recycled collection (currently, only two styles are categorized that way) are made from scrap materials from production. The pictured shoes range from $ 79–$ 89.

Sudo doesn’t have a lot of specific information on its website regarding its production, etc., but it does note that the shoes it makes are “all vegan.” A rep for the company told me that Sudo closed its Boston brick-and-mortar store last year — but it still sells its shoes online, and many styles are available. The pictured ones are $ 69–$ 96.

Ahimsa shoes, which are also available at Amazon, are made in Brazil in the world’s only 100% vegan shoe factory, where almost all production is done by hand, and sustainability is a priority. The company’s vegan leather is made from polyurethane, and the website addresses the inherent environmental concerns on the vegan leather page. Ahimsa also makes a small selection of accessories. The pictured styles range from $ 85 (Amazon price) to $ 139.


pictured above: one / two / three, which we mentioned in our last post on vegan shoes, sells cruelty-free shoes and accessories from brands like Matt & Nat, Birkenstock, and Olsenhaus — but they also have their own brand, Novacas (which, translated literally, means “no cows” in Spanish). The shoes (and bags) are ethically produced in European factories and are designed as “updated styles of classic favorites.” The pictured styles range from $ 130–$ 140.

Shoes from Veerah are cruelty-free and responsibly sourced (the sustainable materials used include apple peels, plastic bottles, and cork), and at least 1% of proceeds go to charity. Besides the shoes themselves, the brand sells unique, removable “accessories” for them, including fringe, ankle straps, and brooches. Depending on your office, they may not be work-appropriate, but they could work well as little desk-to-dinner additions. Veerah’s shoes are pricier than the brands above, and the pictured styles range from $ 268–$ 288.

Trevor Noah Mocks Fox News for Urging Viewers to Stockpile Meat Because Cory Booker Is Vegan

Comedy Central

On Tuesday night, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah addressed Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential announcement—before focusing on the “quaint” scandals of the other Democratic contenders that have thrown the alarmist folks at Fox News for a loop, from Kirsten Gillibrand asking if she should eat her fried chicken with her hands to Kamala Harris being misheard about her musical preferences while puffing on joints in college.

But the silliest “scandal” that got Fox News in a lather has to be Cory Booker’s veganism.

Following a montage of Fox News hosts losing their marbles over Booker’s personal diet, Noah remarked, “I don’t even understand how this is on the news. I say if Cory Booker wants to be a vegan president, he should go for it. His diet choices are his business, they don’t affect anyone else—or at least, that’s what I thought.”

The best vegan handbags you need on your radar

vegan handbags

At the British Fashion Awards, Meghan Markle said that whilst it was once ‘cool to be cruel’ in the fashion world, it was now ‘cool to be kind’.

Major labels such as Chanel, Gucci, Burberry and Tom Ford have pledged to stop using fur and exotic skins in their collections, while others are making a conscious decision to only using leather as a by-product to the food industry.

However, more and more people are now going one step further and turning to products that don’t use leather altogether, and if you’re in the market for a vegan handbag, there are plenty of chic designer and affordable options out there.

Vegan designer handbags

It’s impossible to mention vegan designer bags without mentioning Stella McCartney, who’s been pioneering ethical fashion her whole career. She is one of the only designers who only uses vegan leather throughout her collection, for example made out of recycled plastic from the world’s oceans.

Of course, you can buy fabric and faux leather bags from most designer brands which aren’t exclusively vegan across board, though they sometimes use non-vegan products such as animal-based adhesives. Some great designer options include Jill Milan, Poppy Lissiman and Arran Frances, who are launching their first cruelty free collection in March, with a view to soon being a 100% cruelty-free and animal-friendly leather, with a focus on sustainability through longevity.

Vegan leather handbags

Contrary to the name, we’re obviously not talking animal skin here, but different materials made to look like it. According to PETA, ‘most vegan leather is made of polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order. It can sparkle, have a nice glossy sheen, or be saturated in all kinds of shades.’

Affordable vegan handbags

Because real leather is expensive, vegan leather tends to be more affordable, especially if you look to high-street brands. Matt & Nat, Doshi, Wilby Cluth and LaBante all have great sub-£100 clutch bags, backpacks, tote bags and more.
