Good Taste in Shoes?

Straight from the website...I couldn't make this up...a new food group for the Vegan Diet: Footwear...lots of choices: sandals, clogs, boots...! They look a little crazy, but comfy. Thought you might want to check out some new footwear at

What are Vegan shoes?
Vegan shoes are a special assortment of shoes that are made out of synthetic materials, which means that no animals were used or injured in making these shoes. Vegan shoes are made from man made, synthetic or natural non-animal products. Shoes and clothing need not have animal products to be well made, comfortable, stylish and affordable.

I don’t eat meat, does that make me a vegan?
To our knowledge, that isn’t quite correct. Vegetarians don’t eat meat, fish, and poultry, but they still might use animal products or by-products from animals. Vegans do not eat any animal products at all including: eggs, honey, and dairy products. They also don’t wear leather, fur, silk, or wool. Vegans also don’t purchase cosmetics and soaps made from animal products."
