The 21 Best Brands for Vegan Dress Shoes in 2022

Need vegan dress shoes for work, a wedding or an upcoming event? It hasn’t always been easy to find vegan men’s dress shoes or vegan womens dress shoes, since unfortunately many brands make their dress shoes with leather. However, thanks to all vegan shoe brands, there are now plecompnty of choices!

Some of the brands I’ll be looking at in this article include, among others:

I’ll cover vegan dress shoes for men as well as womens vegan dress shoes.

A note: I’ve linked to where you can buy these shoes online. However, if you prefer buying shoes in person (sometimes you can’t beat trying them on in-person) it can be tricky as not that many shoe label their vegan shoes all that well. You can use this guide to shoe symbols but know that some non-vegan brands use animal-based glues, and check if your city has a vegan shoe store or a vegan shop that sells shoes. Or, take a leaf out of this five-year-old’s book and ask a local footwear shop if they’ll order in vegan shoes for you!
