The Best Looking Eco-Friendly Vegan Trainers in 2022

by VanityForbes

With the pressure to make more ethical, eco-friendly fashion choices, I’m starting to re-look at my wardrobe with a new lens. One of the ethical fashion choices that I am struggling to make is switching from leather trainers to vegan alternatives. My issue with vegan leather footwear is simple. They are downright hideous to look at.

The look of a sneaker plays an essential part in the buying process, and I have no doubt that if more vegan shoe brands focused on this part of the design process, it would persuade more people to make a switch.

Luckily, there are a few brands that measure up with their design. Here are the best looking men’s vegan leather trainers you can buy.
