14 Spots to Shop Vegan Summer Sandals Online
Summer is here and that means flip flops, open-toes, and a fresh new pedi. But you can’t show off that gel-tastic pedicure with just any old flips. No, not you, you vegan goddess of all that is eco- and animal-friendly. That’s why we’ve lined up the best in environmentally conscious, warm-weather footwear. We’ve done the legwork for you, so you can focus on feeling good about looking great. You’re welcome. Here are 14 vegan brands and businesses that offer cute cruelty-free summer sandals.
Will’s is vegan and certified carbon neutral, and they carry clothing, accessories, and shoes for both men and women. Casual comfort defines the selection here, including Slides, Two-Strap Toe-Peg Sandals, and Huarache Footbed Sandals, among others. For something a little dressier, try the Ruffle Sandals in patent black and gold. If clogs are your thing, they’ve got those too.
We’re loving the unique design of the Gumbies sandal. With a tire-tread sole crafted from recycled rubber and bound with jute, its footbed is a comfortable 100% cotton. These flips come in upbeat colors and all purchases contribute to reforestation projects across Africa.
Searching for fair-trade flip-flops? Look no further than Feelgoodz. Melding vegan leather and yoga mat cushioning, the soles of their Zensole Woven Slim Kinderz provide the ultimate arch support and comfort. With bottoms made from recycled rice husks, this shoe also supports Vietnamese rice farmers.
They may be old school, but MooShoes is still offering up some cool cruelty-free kicks. You’ll find sandals in flats, platforms, heels, and wedges. From dressy to casual—and with brands like Bhava, Birkenstock, Novacas, and Ahimsa—the options don’t stop there. Moo Shoes is also the place to find vegan sneakers, clogs, boots, and … yeah … socks. With mens’ and womens’ selections and additional products such as belts, bags, and wallets, this spot has got you covered.
Vegan Chic is your one-stop shop for shoes, bags, and accessories. With a membership program offering benefits such as birthday discounts, credit toward future purchases, and exclusive specials through email, this company provides a wide selection of men’s, women’s, and children’s shoes from pumps to casual, to sneakers and wedges. You’ll find a wide range of options from budget-conscious to high-end designer brands at this PETA-approved shop.
We sang the vegan praises of Bhava in our winter apparel article, but did you know they also offer sandals as well? From mules and slides to pumps and heels, you’ll find something to fit all of your vegan shoe needs (or—we’re not ashamed to admit—wants!). Designed to care for the health of your feet and to look great at the same time, Bhava believes in being kind to the animals, the planet, and to you. No more playing fashion victim; no more supporting cheap labor. Now that’s a philosophy we can get behind.
For vegan-certified, cruelty-free shopping, check out this Australian-based online shoe shop. With a wide selection for both women and children, Holster also offers budget-friendly options as well as their regular lineup. Just head to the “Sale” section for the latest deals or “Bundle” and save!
Beyond Skin is the place to go if you’re looking for sexy little things, including slingbacks, stilettos, and high block heels. We love the metallics, leopard prints, and vintage-inspired bows. PETA-approved sandals for date night, girls’ night, or any night, because … shoes! Be sure to check out their special bridal collection!
BC Footwear is 100% vegan, PETA-approved, and downright fun! Shop from animal prints, plaids, tassels, and strappy rainbow designs. Flats, block heels, and cork wedges are among the many options at this eco-conscious shop. Check out the new arrivals! We’re especially loving the Sorry Not Sorry Wedge Sandal in rainbow and the Triumph Sandal in pastel multi.
If comfort is what you’re looking for, then look no further than Malibu Sandals. In options for both men and women, this PETA-approved footwear brand crafts casual sandals using the traditional Mexican Huarache as inspiration. This nature-loving shop donates a percentage of profits to protect animals through the California Wildlife Center.
Two words: Rope. Sandals. Corda brings you ethical comfort in casual design. And, yes, these handmade shoes are made with ropes! The company creates jobs for Ethiopian individuals who live in poverty (those who craft the sandals), providing skills and training needed to help people lift themselves into a better life. Corda’s tagline? “Buy a pair. Create a job.”
Stop everything! Take a look at Blowfish Malibu’s Moroccan-inspired Raelynn slide with its cushioned footbed and multi-ribboned trim. We’re loving it in pearl white! Okay, go about your day now. Cruelty-free and registered with the Vegan Society, this brand brings you multi-straps, wedges, mules, flatforms, and more.
Looking for casual comfort in everyday designs? Freewaters is your place. You’ll find a variety of travel-tested styles from basic flips to adjustable-strapped sandals just right for everyday wear. Each pair of shoes purchased from Freewaters helps to provide clean drinking water through a variety of grassroots efforts.
Heels, platforms, strappy, simple, sexy—you name it, Lulus carries it. If it’s shoe shopping fun you want, Lulus is the spot for you. This vegan-friendly spot stocks a multitude of colors, styles, and patterns to take you from daytime coffee date to night on the town. Skinny heels, chunky heels, lacy straps, or bold, you’ll find what you want here and so much more (oh … so … much … more!). Be sure to select the vegan filter.
