Earth Vegan Shoes

February 3, 2010 by Keri

Desperately in need of a new pair of vegan athletic shoes, I’ve been searching the internet for weeks to find the perfect pair at a decent price.  (It takes me forever to buy everything.  I add things to my online cart and then rethink, over and over for days.)  I really wanted to try Earth Vegan Rocket-K in the grey with orange, but they are quite expensive and the sites that had my size seemed to be more expensive than those where my size was sold out (go figure).  I finally settled on ordering from PlanetShoes.com because they have a certified vegan shop, offer free shipping on orders over $49, and I found a coupon code TENOFF to save an extra 10% (The coupon code actually saved me more than 10% even though it says 10% off. I’m not sure why, but I don’t question savings).  So on to what I picked.  I chose the Earth Kinetic Vegan in White/Sky Blue and when they arrived I was instantly happy with my purchase.  They fit true to size and are super comfy without me even “breaking them in”.

Vegan Athletic Shoes

I ordered Monday afternoon and my shoes arrived today, Wednesday, with the free shipping!  Now that’s fast.  Okay, so I know I just needed the athletic shoes, but while I was browsing the clearance section I found these babies and fell in love.

Vegan Boots

They looked like they would be so warm and cozy for playing in the snow or just trekking around on a cold day so I had to make them mine.   It’s like sticking my feet in two fluffy teddy bears (weird mental image).  I absolutely adore these vegan boots and they even came with 2 (one per boot) hemp storage/dust bags  to keep them cozy in my closet!  Seriously, I’m way too excited about new shoes!

    Thank you! 🙂
    Yeah, I looked around for a long time and everything marked “vegan” (as far as athletic shoes I mean) looked as though it was about to fall apart, let alone hold up through a good jog. But these look/feel sturdy so I’m hoping!

  3. Just fyi, unfortunately PlanetShoes.com is not an exclusively Vegan store. Whenever possible, I try to give my business to those who are.

    I agree with you, but unfortunately the two I know of, VeganChic.com and MooShoes.com, have mostly women’s fashion sneakers rather than athletic and I couldn’t find anything in stock in my size at either that met my needs. I also love VeganEssentials.com but they also don’t have any athletic shoes in stock in my size. I found it very helpful that PlanetShoes.com has a “vegan shop” so that I could find exactly what I needed without searching through all athletic shoes, leathers included. If you have some favorite vegan shoe sites, I’d love the links so I can check them out as well! Thanks so much!
