Get Stuff We Love
As a dedicated and outspoken vegan for more than 20 years, Pamela Anderson isn't one to sacrifice style or sexiness for her beliefs. And, she doesn't have to.
"It's my friend. She wanted to make vegan shoes. She started making 10 or 20 pairs of shoes for her friends. Now, she's so popular. She can make any shoe you want vegan," said Anderson. "I have a lot of vegan products and you'd never know the difference. It's better to be a naughty vegan and embrace that."
She's not alone. Plenty of celebs, including Mena Suvari and Natalie Portman, refuse to wear leather, and still manage to look chic and on-trend. In fact, if you've thought that vegan shoes — footwear made without animal ingredients or byproducts — were frumpy leave those opinions at your front door.
We've scoured the options and found nine pairs of vegan shoes that look good, and make you feel good while wearing them. Plus, we made sure that all were affordable because as much as we love Stella McCartney's cruelty-free styles, they're not easy on the pocketbook.
