The ultimate vegan shoe guide

Fly veggie kicks that won't cost you an arm and a leek...

PSA: Eco warriors and Lehman’s everywhere, style and sustainability can go hand in hand! As we become more conscious of the ways in which our daily habits have affected and continue to affect our environment, we must remember that consciousness is more than the foods we ingest. It is more than recycling packaging from brands that should, really, know better than to individually wrap each garment in a bulk buy. It’s more than just separating your paper from plastics once you’re done sifting through bills for the day. It’s also more than simply walking, as opposed to hitching a ride on the bus two stops away from your destination, because, “rain”. In fact, it’s all of those things and more. Of course, (all) larger corporations should do more to provide consumers with guilt free, sustainable, conscious products and consistent efficiency at a great price point. Until then, here’s a fool-proof list to the shoe brands keeping the environment and our right to look fly in mind…
