Vegan leather can be made from all kinds of animal-free materials, including polyurethane, recycled bottles, pineapples, and other innovative options. We’ve done the heavy lifting and compiled a list of some of our favorite vegan dress shoes for easy shopping. (Just click on the links to order!) These shoes are gorgeous, durable, and perfect for the professional person to wear to the office as well as stylish enough for an evening of dinner and drinks.
