The first in our series on earth-friendly and vegan shoes. Seriously - we wouldn't be green divas if we didn't love shoes! We recently hooked up with PlanetShoes.com and to our amazement, there is a plentiful variety of not only eco-friendly shoes made from recycled materials, but vegan shoes? Ok, I'm not a vegan virgin, but really vegan shoes? Does this mean I can eat them?
Of course, I jest, but one usually thinks of the term vegan in relationship to food. But, there are folks who are THRILLED to be able to wear shoes that don't look like bricks or little burlap sandals on their feet - shoes that are congruent with their values as vegans. I interpret that to mean that there are no animal products used in the production of the shoe - cruelty-free shoes.

THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT RUNNING SHOES
I recently got an AWESOME pair of new rain shoes (much needed this past week here in the northeast!) from PlanetShoes.com - Dansko vegan rain shoes
! Honestly, I initially picked them because of the killer adorable patterns and THEN realized they were vegan shoes - bonus!
