Vegan Shoe Options

Natalie Portman Vegan Shoes

Once upon a time Natalie Portman had an idea, she was going to promote her vegan lifestyle and create a cruelty free line of shoes at the same time. The then trendy and new Te Casan in New York was willing to hawk those shoes with a price tag of around $200 per pair. Unfortunately Te Casan didn’t last the test of time, in fact it didn’t last very long at all and now it’s hard to find Natalie Portman’s bland shoes anywhere, except hidden deep in the internet, but they are almost as rare as the Iberian Lynx.

So if you’re looking for a vegan style shoe you’re going to have to look elsewhere. LifeStride creates a shoe that is attractive, although not incredibly sexy, the LifeStride Women’s Flair which is made with smooth faux leather lining so it fits within a vegan lifestyle. If you want something sexier, try the Gretta Women’s Gatsby or Goddess, which also feature attractive faux leather. If you’re looking for something a little more durable or casual, Dr. Scholl’s Original Women’s Rave is a nice comfy sandal created with a synthetic upper.

For men’s shoes that are cruelty free you have fewer options unless you want flip flops like the Keen Men’s Streetside Flip although many of these flip flops are very attractive. There are a few sandal options like the North Face Men’s FUTALEUFU but they’re not specifically designed with the vegan shoe wearer in mind. For a dressier men’s vegan shoe you have to search a bit further but there are professional shoes such as the Vegetarian Shoes Office Shoe which is made with Vegetan, a substance still unknown to science.

So the Natalie Portman vegan shoe may soon become extinct, there are still some options out there for those who want to be well shod and still avoid using animal products.
