Sustainability and style became my criteria for shoes when I made the decision to stop buying leather. It hasn’t been easy as many shoes advertised as vegan, for instance M&S, turn out to be pretty dodgy in all other respects. I do still wear my old leather shoes and will until they wear out I’m just not going to contribute financially to that industry any more. Thank heavens the Italians (of course!) have stated doing stylish, sustainable vegan alternatives with companies like Noah leading the way. Reply Alyson Walsh says: December 13, 2020 at 5:02 pm Thanks, Maureen. That’s true about vegan products, quite a lot seem to be plastic… I have a couple of pairs of trainers but, like you, I’m still wearing leather shoes. Reply Gillian says: January 1, 2021 at 7:19 pm I would be interested in what you think of Ecco and Arche as brands as these are my favourite for comfort and style at the moment? I have just found I have osteoarthritis in my feet which is making walking, and therefore choosing shoes, much more difficult, but don’t want to totally sacrifice style.
