It's 2020 - wearing animal skin is out. And cruelty-free fashion is in!
Veganism often gets pinned into a diet category. However, a vegan lifestyle isn't only about the food we put in our mouths. It's also the clothes we wear on our bodies, the products we use on our skin, and the shoes we put on our feet.
More people are transitioning to a cruelty-free lifestyle, which is causing brands to adapt their ranges to vegan. And the results are incredible.
Footwear has traditionally used animal products like leather, fur, hide, wool. However, non-animal products and faux materials are readily available and can produce indistinguishable results.
If you're unsure of what to look out for when it comes to vegan shoes use this great guide by Keep It Vegan to help you.
To assist you in your vegan footwear journey, we've put together some of the best vegan shoes on the market for active and adventurous women.
