Simple shoes for a happy planet

I found out about Simple Shoes when looking for eco-friendly products on dELiA*s. I not only found eco-friendly shoes, but ones that had “vegan” in the title with the slogan “Going Vegan never looked so good!” They’re the ones I’ve featured below.

Unfortunately, they’re no longer available, but I still wanted to know more about them. And boy did I find out more about them! This is another one of those fantastic companies that you love more and more as you learn more about them. Simple Shoes was created because the makers wanted a simple shoe without all the unnecessary gadgets, hype, tech, etc. They then took it a step further by making an eco-friendly and vegan line. From there they decided to make all of their shoes environmentally-friendly. They’ve adopted a good, better, best plan and they continue to work to make their shoes even better. Instead of making shoes made out of just sustainable resources, Simple Shoes now uses mostly recycled materials and have high human rights and environmental standards.

I’ve featured a few of my favorite vegan shoes from their women and men selections, but they have a wide selection on their website. Remember that you vote with your wallet. When stores and companies see a demand in a certain product, they make more of it available.

You are clearly the best dress green going fashionista around Eva. I wish I had a fraction of your passion.

Oooh thats so cool! When I first saw the shoes, I wasn’t a huge fan (too simple for my liking lol) but they do grow on you! I especially like the brown and pink ones for the vegan shoes! So cute! Actually, after looking at them some more, I like all three pairs of them! The colors are so unique and just look cute on them! I think I’m gonna go check out their website now ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m so glad you’re all loving these fashion finds of mine. I was happily surprised to find so many all at once!

Misty – All of the shoes I posted here are vegan. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d have trouble picking out which ones to get (if I needed a pair of sneakers.. I would definitely buy one of these right now!). The more I look at them, the more I’m loving the men shoes, actually!

My husband has a pair of Simples. They are fantastic and handle wear and tear well. I can’t wait to get a pair of my own!

I bought a pair of these Simple sneakers at Alternative Outfitters in Pasadena. They’re so comfortable, and I love that I can just slip them on. (The ties are elastic instead of shoestrings.) There’s not a ton of arch support for activities like running, but for just doing errands, they’re perfect.
