ever since i saw cameron diaz wearing these lovely sandals in the april vogue, i’ve been pretty obsessed with them – well, with the whole perfectly summer look, really. and, since it’s the first pair of vegan shoes i’ve ever really fallen for, i figured this was a great chance to prove i actually can be eco-conscious sometimes (apparently, as long as it involves absolutely no sacrifice on my part).

it’s taken me this long to finally track down these sweet goliath sandals, but designer olsen haus finally has a website! at $99, these are such a great, reasonable option for a chic sandal (if not quite a ‘cheap thrill’). i absolutely love the blend of black and tan leather stacked on the vamp, and the geometry of the ankle straps. it’s definitely one of my favorite sandals of the season.
if you’re one of my eco-friendly readers, olsen haus is definitely a go-to for chic vegan styles. they have a few great options ahead for fall too (though some are a bit over the top, i have to admit). but i love this blue faux-suede pump and, naturally, this magenta flat.
There really are some great vegan shoe options out there these days! I love Vegan Chic http://www.veganchic.com for their wide selection and fashionable options.
In May 2009, I bought two pairs of shoes from Vegan Chic. One pair of shoes was of poor quality, so I returned them by certified mail to Vegan Chic according to their return policy. I received an e-mail in August stating that a check was in the mail. After several more months, I contacted Vegan Chic by phone and was told that a check would be issued. By December 2009, I had not received a refund. As a consequence, Vegan Chic kept the shoes and my money. Beware of doing business with this company as it is not reputable!
