We here at Turning Veganese could write many posts about shoes, handbags, and other accessories, and how turning vegan has changed how we shop. This post is about one particular brand of shoe: TOMS.
TOMS are pretty popular these days, but they first ended up on my radar when I was searching for vegan boots. They make a pretty damn cool vegan boot:
It was disappointed to then learn that their classic slip-on shoes are not vegan, though they do have some vegan styles. This is so exciting to me. I have two pairs of TOMS, one classic and one ballet flat, and I was finally able to get a pair of the vegan chambray slip-ons. They were on backorder for a long time!
While I wish TOMS was exclusively vegan, I have to appreciate that they make vegan products at all and are proud to do so. There are a lot non-vegan products that I’m having a hard time letting go of. It’s wonderful to know that I can still enjoy my comfy TOMS without compromising my vegan integrity.
