Sanders’ Vegan Shoes
Our friend Ville over at Keikari emailed me last night to tell me that Sanders also makes vegan shoes. A quick Google search reveals that they’re only available through special orders placed by stores (their regular line, which is what you’d find almost everywhere, is made from real leather). However, this Finnish store seems to carry a vegan model, and it’s probably the best looking, most affordable option I’ve seen. 
The sole is supposedly Goodyear welted, though I’m not sure what value that provides if the uppers will look bad in a few years. Fake leather unfortunately doesn’t age well.
Still, great to see a good, affordable option for our vegan friends.

“Don’t overbuy. When you contemplate an article, judge whether or not it harmonizes with items you already own. Again, avoid exaggeration of current fashions. It’s best to be inconspicuous. But inconspicuous does not mean dull. Extreme dullness can be conspicuous in itself. Just do the best you can.” — Excerpt from Cary Grant’s long article on style, which he penned in 1962. The full piece is available at Keikari.
“[B]eware of sales and ‘deals’ and don’t end up buying stuff that’s heavily marked down just because it’s cheap. Ugly is ugly and stuff you fall out of love with in a year is expensive no matter how much you paid for it.” — Michael Anton, in a recent interview at Keikari
