Vegan Shoes

The green movement has long been accepted in just about every phase of our lives, so much so it seems odd that vegan shoes haven not made an appearance before now. Several manufacturers are currently engaged in a line of shoes without leather, shoes with materials that are organic and environment friendly. Some, while comfortable may be ordinary looking, some are quite stylish. There are at present some 40 manufacturers with some 200 styles to choose from. The article I read only mentioned women’s shoes, but surely that is quite temporary. As the idea becomes more established lines for men’s and children’s will soon also become popular.
It all sounds so great—unless of course one views the advent of vegan shoes as part of what one commentator called the commoditization of the environment.
