Simple makes vegan shoes out of sustainable materials. I’m not sure if that’s common knowledge though.

They don’t yet have a database for shoes as its only in beta production, but this site is great for finding out about environmental friendliness http://www.goodguide.com/

Earth shoes are, not very surprisingly given the name, Earth-friendly.

@SuperMouse – Toms are great. I love the program!

My birks are wonderful. I don’t have to replace them often, great shoes.

@SuperMouse I’d never heard of Tom’s before, but they seem worth supporting. Also, yay shoes! Are they comfortable and high quality?
