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, 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.
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.
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)
These crazy big platform vegan heels are like all of my shoe dreams rolled into one. They’re huge, they’re retro, they’re totally over the top and they’ve got polka dots. If you ever wanted to be like a foot taller then now’s your chance (OK, they’re not quite that high, but at 5.5 inches, they’re plenty tall enough).
Absolutely everyone would notice you if you were wearing these, which makes these the perfect shoes for you if you love being the centre of attention. Otherwise you’re probably better off wearing shoes that don’t scream so loud.
While the blurb talks about wooden soles, I don’t actually think it’s actual wood, but rather some fake wood. I could be wrong, though. Wouldn’t that be cool? Either way, these are, as they say, made of awesome.
You can get them from Modcloth.
Totally loving these amazing glitter platform heels from Schuh! Towering high at 14CM with a nice retro-esque pin uppy platform is impressive enough, but these are in amazing blue glitter. What a brilliant colour in every way.
Just imagine how amazing these would look with a 50s vintage dress, a little black dress, a catsuit, a showgirl outfit or pretty much anything you can think of.
I know I have quite a few vegan diva readers lurking away somewhere to this one goes out to you. It’s time to put these on and shine line a true bombshell and dance around with the best of em.
You can get these amazingly awesome shoes from Schuh.
Woohoo! Another cute pair of perfectly summery shoes from Poetic License. These are called “Sweet Shirley Temple”, I guess because they’re super cute and are made with chintzy patterned fabric that looks like something your granny would have worn as a summer dress or used as curtains. Note the super-cute tiny little cherry beads, too!
These lovely lovely wedges come in black or pink as well. You can get them all from Endless.
Brace yourself for a big name to fit these big big wedge sandals: “Schuh Garda Ankle Strap Wedge”. You’ll need the name to search for them on the Schuh site. Aren’t they awesome and retro-licious? Towering high above the world with a 13cm heel they may be a bit demanding for the average user, but boy are they hot! Supposedly 70s inspired, though I reckon the gingham means they’d go well with 50s dresses too. The 70s seem to be back in style this summer. Weren’t they already back in style a few years back? Or has it been long enough for the style to become re-retro?
Either way, you can get these from Schuh in the UK and worldwide.
These Poetic License shoes are called “apple pie” and they’re as yummy as can be. Apart from this super cute pink colour, they also come in a similarly pastel blue and also in black.
They have a pretty retro profile and a super sweet little apple on the side for that extra nice little touch to make them special. Great all-seasons urban shoes to go with your retro look or add a retro edge to any other outfit without sacrificing modern trendiness.
You can get them from Irregular Choice.
Here’s a pair of cheery vegan t-bar heels to remind you that spring will soon be with us. They are very airy and sweet with a fairly open weave to keep your feet happy and a lovely retro-style floral patterb to keep you happy. They’d go very well with your vintage dresses or high waisted trousers. You could match them with a floral neck or head scarf thing for even more cuteness.
They’re called Rocket Dog Oak Floral and you can get them from Schuh. I wonder if there are more colours of the Oak shoe apart from floral?
