Vegan-friendly Infinity Shoes has flowered high-tops, rainbow zig-zagged kicks, and one extra-amazing pair of electric blue platform boots #Sponsors#fashion#shoes#vegan August 31 | Stephanie Kaloi This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Home & Life because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Ariel's always showing off awesome party shoes over on Offbeat Bride, but what about those of us who aren't planning a special event and just love us some awesome shoes? Like, oh, say this Limerick Platform Shoe! That, my friends, is 5 inches of heel, 2 inches of platform, and in total 7 inches of complete and total INCREDIBLE, all from our sponsor Infinity Shoes. If you're not already living nearby one of their NYC locations, allow me to introduce the two of you. The biz is most known for helping to create and carrying the very fabulous line of shoes by Miz Mooz, and many of the designs are unique to Infinity Shoes. Infinity Shoes also has plenty of vegan-friendly options — and I'mma show you a few of my favorites: If you can't quite picture yourself strutting around in platforms (if you can: I LOVE YOU), these high-top Dr. Martens might be what you're looking for. The rose pattern is totally '90s throwback without cheese, and the sneaker is more lightweight than the combat boots Dr. Martens is best known for. There are three super excellent things about this Dr. Martens lace-up ankle boot: 1) the outside is oil resistant, so NOTHING'S gonna ruin your shoes, 2) you can wear them in the sunshine or the rain, and 3) in case you missed it, this boot is PINK. Like, so pink it'll make you happy every time you look down at your feet. I saved my favorite pair for last, and I've been giddy to write about these rainbow zig-zag canvas kicks from the second I saw them. I'm not sure if they'd be more perfect for leaping around and pretending you're some kind of rainbow fairy or pairing with an all-black outfit to give the world a burst of SURPRISE! when they see your feet, but they're perfect. PERFECT I SAY. If you're hunting around for even MORE vegan shoe options, Infinity Shoes has stellar women's and men's vegan options; and plenty of non-vegan options as well. The clearance page alone is a veritable shoeplosion of multi-colored goodness just waiting for you and your giddy shoe-shopping ways. Get to it!

I own a pair that look just like them… Reply Nope! These are listed under the Vegan Shoes on Infinity Shoes (third row: http://www.infinityshoes.com/search?cats=womens/vegan-shoes), and the description reads: "Oil resistant rubber outsole Synthetic and textile lining and upper" Yay vegan alternatives! 1 agrees Reply FYI, "synthetic" doesn't always mean vegan. Bonded leather (30% leather mixed with 70% synthetic materials) is often overlooked, since most well-meaning retailers have no idea what it is. (I am vegan and used to work for a vegan-friendly company; trust me on this!) "Patent leather" doesn't mean fake leather, by the way. Unless you are specifically buying a vegan product, it traditionally refers to leather with a patent (shiny) finish. I checked Doc Martens' online store and didn't see that pink boot listed under their vegan collection, so I'd contact Doc Martens to be sure. Believe me, I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, since I really like those boots. However, well-meaning retailers – and well-meaning designers – do occasionally make mistakes. (Of course, I should probably wear out the two pairs of vegan Docs I already own before I buy ANOTHER pair.) 1 agrees Reply OOh! I'm going to share your comment with Infinity Shoes! Thanks for this feedback. Reply Ugh, I have such a love of Doc Martin boots. My favorite shoes of all time are my 40 eye boots. I think if I had those pink ones, they would be a close second (although much easier to get on, I would think). Also, the Docs website lists them as "patent leather". Reply Also, I know we are talking vegan shoes here, but these are a perfect addition to my Jedi costume: http://www.infinityshoes.com/Miz-Mooz-Womens-Kacy-Riding-Boot-2970.html Reply That particular photo is the patent leather docs. There is a vegan boot in the same color. The difference is the vegan pair do not have the black stitching and have a different pull strap than the traditional black and yellow.
