Did you know that etnies carries vegan shoes?  I certainly didn’t, so I was super-psyched when they contacted Chic Vegan about their vegan line and shipped on over a pair of their Jameson 2 Ecos for us (There is also a KID’S version).

Caprice Eco

I have to say that I was impressed with the quality of the shoe and thrilled to learn that in addition to being stylish (as confirmed by my pre-teen son who is a HARSH shoe critic), they are also super earth-friendly with regards to how they are constructed:

“The low-top canvas shoe, made using recycled rubber in the outsole and recycled plastic in the PET shoe laces, features a faux-vulc cupsole construction and a thinly padded tongue and collar for protection and added comfort so it looks like a vulc, but skates like a cupsole. Includes cork-lined OrthoLite, STI Foam Lite level 1 footbeds.”

Lurker Vulc H

Not only is the shoe constructed with Mother Nature in mind, etnies is also helping reforest Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest with the sale of each and every pair.  It is amazing to know that etnies’ best-selling shoe, the Jameson 2 Eco, is part of their Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree reforestation program.

With every shoe sold from “Buy A Shoe, Plant A Tree” program, this year they are planting 100,000 trees in Brazil (last year was Costa Rica with 35,000 trees).  Check out their entire etnies Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree collection.


I like to know that when I spend my money I am buying a quality product and it thrills me to know that I can purchase from a company focused on quality as well as bettering our world.

    Hi, I’m in the process of transitioning to veganism and one of the things I’m finding difficulty with as I’m doing my research is finding vegan shoes to fit me…I wear men’s 13 wide shoes. I’m finding lots of vegan options, but not in 13Wide?? HELP!

    I wished I was an expert in this arena! Perhaps some others with the same issue will comment…

    Try payless shoe source. I know its not the best idea but a lot of their shoes are non leather and you can usually find wide.

    The internet is our friend!!! lol I am a “Google-holic” so I would say a good “Google” search would be a great place to start…

    Zappos definitely comes to mind! The people at Zappos have Amazing customer service and will go above and beyond to assist you with anything you need! If you are not “internet-savvy” I would suggest giving them a call. Tell them what you are looking for and they will send you, via email, different products that might fit your need. Then all that’s left is to place your order! 🙂 They also have an amazing return policy. 🙂

    But here is a link to a google search just to get you started. 🙂

    Hope this helps! And Good Luck with the Amazing and Fulfilling transition and journey you are going on! 🙂
