As you may have noticed, this blog has been quiet for a while. This is because I’ve been putting all my energy into a different project and taking a step back from everything else. That said, I caught sight of these absolutely mad glitter platforms and decided it’s time to make a quick appearance and share, because, well… You know.
These are great for those times when nothing but the craziest, over the top shoes will do. When you need to be a few inches taller and sparkle like a disco ball. So, any night of the week then. I mean, as if the sparkle wasn’t enough, there are massive bows as well. They’re called bowen peep ankle strap glitter high heels and you can get them from Schuh.
Well, I love purple and I love platform heels and it’s the season for sandals, so I totally love these. They’re Madden Girls and they do come in a range of colours – black, some browns, a cool red-orange-pink combo…I’m not sure all are vegan as there’s a tan option that’s definitely not fabric, although for this price, I’m pretty sure it’s not real leather (they are made in China though, where sometimes leather is cheaper than fake). T These purple ones definitely say fabric and synthetic all over them. hey’re definitely great party heels and perfect for spring. Need I say again how gorgeous the purple shade is? It’s not every day that I see purple vegan shoes, I must say.
You can get them from Endless.
Roni Kantor, one of my favourite vegan designers has brought out her summer collection and I want all of it. I’m going to have to choose just the one pair (or am I?). I’m showing these because there’s a shortage of attractive vegan shoes that are feminine and sexy but not on super high heels. These are tiny kitten heels and she also does completely flat shoes with similar touches of leopard print or other colours in the fan pattern. Great if you want to look the part but hate wearing heels.
She used to sell her shoes on Etsy but doesn’t seem to anymore. If you want these, contact her through her Facebook page and ask how you can order them.
A thousand times yes! These shoes are blatantly made of awesome. I generally need to be sold on brown shoes, but these are just about crazy enough for me to love. If they were a guy I’d be totally making a fool of myself right about now, but they’re a pair of shoes so I can just throw some money at the problem and make them mine. I’m not quite sure what I’d wear them with, but I guess it doesn’t matter because no one would be looking at what you’re wearing. They’d be too busy looking at the shoes.
They’re made by Iron Fist (who else?) and are called ” iron fist filthy landlubber t-bar pf high heels” on the Schuh site (enter that in the search box).
Iron Fist themselves match their shoes with bold coloured tights and short dresses.
You can get these on the Schuh site.
Well, it’s been a crazy month or so here at virtual Vegan Shoe Addict towers. I’ve returned from travels, moved house and now I’m off again. I’ve not really had time to write about shoes, sadly, but I did save these Kurt Geiger “Garden Courts” after seeing the Carvela line at the airport.
Not all of the Carvelas are vegan, but a lot of them are and they’re generally quite fun. These particular ones are like a poor (wo)man’s version of something you’d wear to the Oscars and I reckon they could comfortably carry a good dress.
In the UK, you can get them from House of Fraser
Well, I was looking for some cheesy heart shoes to blog about for Valentine’s Day but instead I found these TUK “frankenheart” shoes that look a bit more suited to Halloween. Still, they’re weird, they have hearts on them and they seem to be stitched together roughly, like a Frankenstein monster. Sounds about right for my Valentine’s Day, then!
I’m not sure why you might want heels that look like they’ve been cut out of Frankenstein, but they’re green and purple and they made me laugh. There are some better pics of them online elsewhere, but so far I’ve only managed to find them in size 4, apart from Amazon.co.uk that has them in 3 different sizes. If you’re feeling pin upy, retroish, romantic and ghoulish at the same time, then these are the perfect shoes for you.
These pretty, polka-dotty platforms may not be exactly right for the current snowy weather, but they are sooo cute and will be perfect for spring. I can’t tell whether the front platform is made of woven raffia or whether it’s some sort of fabric or faux leather but either way it’s pretty cheery and the ties look like they’d look really cute on. I wish there was a picture of someone wearing them so I could see exactly what they look like on, but you can’t have everything.
Great for your various retro, pin up and burlesque party needs.
I found them on the Next website.
OK, so these heels are a bit breakneck, but if they were a guy I’d be totally making a fool of myself right now. And probably in vain, because they’re pink! Check out the goodies – we have a sexy fishnet pattern, skulls, bows, even a little pink skull charm, by the looks of it. Oh and, of course, black and white stripes for that sexy punk/courtesan feel. I do believe these are the perfect vegan, somewhat edgy pin up shoes for all your flirting-with-goth needs.
Oh yeah and they’re totally on sale right now at Schuh. Get in there quickly while there are still a few sizes left!
Schuh are always ones to pick up on current trends and offer cute, affordable versions. These cute retro shoes are actually called cherry pie, even though they actually have sparkling blackberries on them.
If you’re a vintage / retro fan, then these would be a perfect addition to your wardrobe, as they’ll never go out of fashion and would go well with all your 50s dresses.
These also come in an odd shade of black & white gingham with flowers and red raspberries instead of the blackberries. They look a bit like these poetic license heels I wrote about a while back, but with what I think is a more flattering shape.
You can get them from Schuh.
Sticking with the glitter theme because ’tis the season to be sparkly (and also because I love shiny and sparkly shoes and the upcoming NYE party thing is a very good excuse for sharing these), I introduce to you these ultimate party platforms! Sophisticated enough to be classy, glittery enough to be fun…These are brilliant without being too crazy, for a thoroughly suave night out with a bit of a jolly wink. Tall heels but steady-looking, so you don’t have to worry about falling over drunk when you’re out at the gallery opening or whathaveyou.
You can get them from Modcloth, if you’re quick.
They seem to have a pretty mindblowing selection of great vegan shoes on there this season.
Well aren’t these just totally brilliant? Check out the heel! But just in case this ultra-super-fucking-awesome lightening-shaped heel wasn’t enough to make these Flash Gordon 80s revival meets pin up creation sweet, you also get a little tiny blue lightening bolt on the front. These will definitely make any outfit and get you instantly noticed. If you want to have people talking about your shoes all night long, then you’ll have to work hard to beat these ones, I think.
You can get them from TUK.
A while back, a reader asked me about alternatives to Irregular Choice shoes, because she didn’t like the fact that they sell shoes with fur. Well, now another one of my dedicated readers, Lara (thanks, Lara!) has discovered Ruby Shoo. It’s a company that makes very cute, girly heels such as these ones, that are obviously quite retro inspired and feature a certain quirkiness that is not a million miles away from Irregular Choice shoes. They’re not quite as crazy as some of the Irregular Choice offerings, but are certainly gorgeous… and vegan. I do believe they might all be vegan, actually.
You can get them from Amazon in the UK.
It’s time to pay another visit to my favourite vegan Israeli designer – Roni Kantor. These lovelies are from her current winter collection and are certainly retro-esque. She specialises in redesigns and retro-inspired creations in the clothing department but also has this like of shoes consciously made out of leather alternatives.
These work great with dark tights and vintage dresses and have chunky-ish, sold heels making them perfect for offices and parties alike. Love them. Check out the rest of her collection for some more eye-poppingly cute shoes.
You can get her stuff on Etsy. Good old Etsy.
Here’s a pair of shoes for all you fans of low heels, shiny heels and showgirl heels. These look a bit like something out of a chorus line, with sparkly bows and a colour-shifting fabric upper (with faux leather trims). They look like they’ll make fun dancing shoes, if you’re not keen on skyscraper heels but want to look girlie and retro.
The description says they’re purple, too, though I can’t quite tell in the picture. They seem more like a cross between purple and turquoise.
Either way, you can get them at Schuh.
Thank you for reader Lara (not to be confused with Laura) who sent me a link to these wonderful Fluevogs that have somehow slipped my radar. It’s so good to see Fluevog bring out at least one vegan style every season, as their shoes are beautiful. These are inspired by the 70s and judging by the reviews are comfortable and flattering (though run a tiny bit small).
Note that there are a few colours in this style and only this one is vegan. The other ones are not. The good news is that they’re on sale and very heavily reduced. It may be autumn, but these are going to look just as gorgeous next year, I’m sure.
You can get them on the Fluevog site or on Amazon for a little bit more (which may be handy if they run out of your size on the Fluevog one)
