Vegan shoes – where to buy vegan DMS, New Rocks and more
The Vegan Society have helped us compile a list of places to buy alternative vegan shoes online. Vegan boots and trainers, too. You want vegan DMs? New Rocks? Victoriandustrial boots? Not a problem.
If you would rather not sacrifice style for conscience, and are of a vegan turn of mind and don’t want to trade your ethics for fashion, you may have discovered that vegan shoes are (a) sometimes hard to find online and (b) can be quite expensive. We scouted through a few online vegan shops to find the animal-free equivalents of goth platform boots, DMs and more.
Retro vegan shoes from Beyond Skin
Alternative Vegan Shoes
Converse All Star – original and best
Converse have a proud history of ensuring that counter-culturists from indie singer songwriters to punks to – well, everyone – have walked around shod, happy and ethically sound. Converse All Stars are canvas ‘n’ plastic, and vegan to the bone. Wait – that was a poor turn of phrase. Just make sure you go for the basic canvas design, not any with leather uppers or detailing.
Pennangalan have lots of awesome boots.
Vegetarian Shoes have vegan New Rocks and DMs
Beyond Skin do wonderful vegan shoes that are elegant, chic, retro and undeniably Mooky. You can expect to pay £45.00 or less, and their designs are quite unique.
Ethical Wares have some boots along those lines
Vegan Stores have got an interesting waterproof moon boot. Impressive.
Veganline have got a couple of DM style boots
Freerangers have got one shoe/boot
Macbeth is good for trainers.

Mad Fish do vegan goth boots. Their prices are what you might expect for a standard platform goth boot (around £65 for a knee-high pair).
Mad Fish Vegan Goth Boots – decent selection

Capezio is good for dance trainers.
Mook Towers is in love with dance trainers. They’re cheap (around £17.00), they make you look like you do parkour (let’s be honest, unless you do, you probably don’t) and they’re so light you can fold them up and put them in your pocket. Possibly the most useful thing in the world – and the vegan dance trainers that Capezio do look very simple and industrial and light.
