I hear you’re into luxury fashion and want to make a switch for luxury vegan shoe brands.
Firstly, congratulations! That’s a great choice, vegan footwear is in vogue right now.
So much so that to some, wearing a pair of vegan shoes is ‘luxury statement’ in itself.
A statement of respect for animals and the planet, as your choice to look good, depends on their welfare.
In fact, with the COVID-19 madness nearly over, you can see the world shifting towards sustainable fashion choices as well.
But, before we start, let’s dispel some myths about luxury vegan shoe brands.
Vegan Luxury Shoe Brands – Not Equal
First and foremost, not all vegan shoes are equal. What does that mean?
Well, if you buy vegan shoes from a brand that’s not entirely vegan, your shoes are not really vegan.
Why? Because on the same production lines, the brand processes animal skin and vegan leather.
That brand does not fight against animal cruelty, it is just greenwashing and misleading ethical customers like you.
Moreover, that’s a bad move for your image, as true buyers of vegan luxury shoe brands will spot you from a mile and brand you as a fake conscious consumer.
Secondly, not all vegan shoes, even if they’re made by certified vegan brands, are environmentally friendly.
Sustainable Vegan Leather Is Key
Last but not least, not all vegan shoes are luxury and this is something that needs a bit of development.
You see, the luxuriousness of a product is dictated by more than just its price.
In general, we are tempted to associate high price with luxury products.
But, not all luxury products have a high price. At the same time, not all expensive products are luxury.
True luxury is more about the uniqueness of the product and the rarity of materials used.
Luxury Is More Than Price
It is also about the history and heritage of the brand, and the craft of the artisans behind – in our case – these luxury vegan shoe brands.
However, as you’ve noticed by now, finding and trusting designers that make luxury vegan shoes is not an easy task.
Right now, you probably don’t know more than two luxury vegan shoe brands. Do you? Give it a try.
I hear you say, Stella McCartney, Hiraeth, and…you’ve stopped. That’s what I thought.
Well, it is not a problem if you do not know which shoe brands are vegan, luxurious and sustainable, all at the same time.

A decade of fashion; here’s to the next one.
The past decade has been turbulent – and defining – for fashion: child labour, climate crisis, gender inequality, animal cruelty, and reckless plastic pollution, just to name a few.
At the beginning of this decade, the COVID-19 pandemic gave us a glimpse into the future of fashion:
If not ethical and sustainable, it will soon be ‘all-digital’.
That’s why finding media that covers the intersection of fashion with innovation for a sustainable future is so critical right now.
Finding media that informs all, without paywalls, is even harder, especially now in times of social media misinformation.
