So you may have seen me wax lyrical about the super lush vegan bags by MATT & NAT recently, and I’m still eagerly planning my haul when I place a new order following my wardrobe clear-out! I’ve never found it quite so easy to fawn over vegan shoes though…..I’ve just never found a collection that both fitted the ethical bill, and also left me drooling. It’s a bit like when you look at the veggie options at a restaurant and the chef has clearly assumed you’re veggie because you’re trying to be healthy and so you must just want a salad…..wanting ethically produced shoes doesn’t mean I have no desire to wear something practical and fashionable!
However, whilst internetting earlier this week I came across a brand called Wills and realised I’d finally found my vegan shoe crush.
Will Green founded Wills “with a passion to provide animal and human friendly shoes with high-street styles and prices.” The aim of the brand is to bridge the gap between everyday people and ethically produced shoes. The entire range is free of animal products while workers are paid in accordance with European guidelines.
Shoes are made with microfibers that look, wear, breathe and resist water just like leather, and because they’re priced to compete with high street brands, there is no excuse not to make a more ethical choice! There is a range for men too, and Will looks to me an awful lot like John Krasinski, which is always a good sign in my opinion!
It was initially the super comfy looking boots which caught my eye, but as I’m focussing on those tiny signs that Spring is on its way, I opted for a ‘want’ list that was a little more geared to the coming seasons…..
So now it’s just a case of getting those shoes cleared out of the wardrobe so that I can fill it up with some of these beauties!
