Hi everyone.  I just joined, and figured I should do a "Hi everyone" post.

I've been in Austin pretty much my entire adult life, but have only been vegan for the past couple years.  

I need to buy new shoes, and for years I've just been buying the same model of New Balance sneakers.  Now it's time to replace my shoes again, and I suspect that most sneakers are non-vegan.  Does anyone know a good place to shop for vegan sneakers?  I'm worried about mail ordering shoes that don't fit well.

I need something I can wear as a teacher, so I can't just get Crocs...

Welcome!

Zappos.com has an awesome return policy - free shipping both ways. Also, I've never bought from them, but VeganEssentials.com has a huge shoe department.

If you don't mind something cheap, Payless is known for having non-leather shoes. They do wear out pretty quickly, though. I've only gotten sneakers there - I'm not sure about dress shoes.

I know this doesn't apply now, but if you ever need decent running shoes, there's RunTex.

I'm not sure of any others. Any other ideas, guys?

Welcome! I actually just got some vegan etnies the other day at Journey's at Barton Creek mall. They're the digit smu's (gray ones), and are made out of a synthetic suede material. They also have some ipath and macbeth shoes there if you like that style. Whole Earth has simple brand shoes, they've got some vegan variations (And a good bit of non-vegan ones)

Most Toms have leather in them, but a few don't and I think are labeled the "vegan" ones... Idk about the ones from whole foods...
