Sandals Roundup 2017

Olukai Holona

Hey everyone, summer is finally here in earnest in New York.  The weather is getting hot and sticky, which means its time to get out the open toes.  Whether you’re going to the beach or just walking the dog around the block, everyone needs a good pair of flip flops or strappy sandals for the warm weather.  Hell, there are probably a lot of you out there who wear these all year round (#jealous).  So whatever it is you’re getting into, you should be able to find a nice pair of vegan sandals to suite your needs.  Check out our picks below (all available at Zappos)!

House of Future

Today we got House of Future, a new label putting out some very clean looking sneakers.   They currently have two models, a hi top and low top.  Both combine minimal silhouettes and vegan materials.  The uppers are made of micro-suede and micro-leather, which offer a premium look while being easy to maintain.  According to the Creative Director, they didn’t set out to be a vegan brand, but the materials were chosen for their aesthetic and performance abilities.  All gravy to us!

Available at House of Future.

Charlie Butler


Hey everyone, today we are excited to announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for Charlie Butler, an Australian (re-brand) that makes cruelty-free, hand made, comfortable work shoes.

Charlie Butler is trying to solve a problem that bothers people all over the world – where can I get shoes I can wear to work that are look good in the office and don’t kill your feet?  This question is especially pressing nowadays, when there is such a thin line between what is professional and casual.  There are different ways you can approach this, such as making a sneaker like the Wills Sneaker Boot.   Or you can go with more of a boot look such as Charlie Butler.  While the uppers look and feel like your traditional wingtip or oxford, the shape and sole of it distinctly feel crafted like an actual work boot.  The roomy, boxy toe and the sole is thick rubber with large grooves.  Comfortable and long lasting, but not exactly the low profile that is customary with dress shoes.

Four colorways in each model are available at ZapposContinue reading Native Shoes Monaco

Many of you know Matt & Nat as a maker of excellent vegan bags, but whoa, we didn’t know they were in the shoe game!  These choice kicks dropped earlier this spring, and sorry for being late on this but we had to post about them as soon as we found out.  Currently, they only have two models, and they stick pretty closely to the Matt & Nat aesthetic – minimalist design, high quality PU materials.  They also feature a chunky high 1″ sole.  Unfortunately the low top looks like it’s sold out, but hopefully they’ll be available soon!

The Bonaventure and Peel available at Matt & Natt.  Peel available at Moo Shoes.
