Vegan athletic shoes- advice?

Shopping for new athletic shoes. Does anyone have recommended brands or just advice when shopping for vegan athletic shoes? Never purchased vegan shoes before but I’m trying to do better. I’m nervous because I don’t know the reputation of any of these brands, and I want to make sure I’m still getting research-backed shoes that are good for your body (speaking from an anatomical/athletic perspective).

I don’t know, but the whole thing is a gimmick and absurd.

If you’re looking for athletic shoes, and I mean real athletic shoes intended for sport, then focus on that and not on saving the world.

Not the advice you were looking for, but there you go.

Luckily, most athletic/running shoes are vegan as now most companies use synthetic as opposed to animal bones for glue. Make sure that they don’t have those little pieces of suede/leather that some companies put on (as accents) and you’re good.

Really don't know how you manage to constantly give worthless advice. If you don't have anything to contribute, then just don't say anything.

Looks like this thread is old, but if the OP or someone else finds this useful, Mooshoes has a good selection of sneakers. However, I'm not sure what kind of athletic activities you're trying to do and what you require. Running will require very certain shoes, especially if you're running long distances. I don't know if I would run in these, but perhaps you can contact this company and see if they have recommendations for other businesses.

you’re about 6 months late and why do you insist on being so nasty?

Perhaps I’m not as pedantic as you but my point was valid nonetheless.

By the way, in your haste to insult me you missed the premise of the original post; athletic shoes that are vegan, whatever the **** that means, AND research backed and good for ones body.

I'm nasty? When your answer to someone here is that their values are absurd?

I'm not vegan, but what purpose does that comment serve?

If someone here posted a question about Hasiditic clothes, I would not, as a non-Hasiditic person, interject and say "I think that lifestyle is dumb."

I see that you edited your comment after I replied. I added to this thread because someone bumped it. I assume the OP is long gone, but hopefully if someone comes across this, they'll find a resource for vegan shoes -- even if not directly tied to athletic pursuits -- a bit more useful than "your values are absurd."

Please point out in my post where I said that his values are absurd. You put that comment in quotes. Are they yours or are you attributing to me?

speaking of worthless advice. Apart from whatever joy you derive from the moral posturing and being a dick your post had no utility (and less utility to the OP than the post you were ******** on). Those shoes in your link are casual wear and not fit for any athletic endeavor, at least PF was advising the OP to prioritize his own health and safety when buying footwear

If the OP is interested I wear Brooks for distance running and the entire brand is vegan. It’s also excellent quality, service and performance

The OP is long gone, but should have known that if not running in a suit should be wearing Goodyear welted Gibsons in his running shorts.

Great, let's polute the Oceans with synthetics. We don't really need Dolphins, Seals, Penguins and Whales to be honest.
Tambien soy de Panama! ? most athletic shoes being made today are mesh (nike/adidas/brooks/etc) so that is already vegan.
