MACBETH: Kicks that Rock
Many a Vegan has had the same encounter with someone that questioned them and their choices – ‘You’re Vegan, but you’re wearing leather trainers right?’ wrong; or so is the case with Macbeth. Lesser known in the fashion world, Macbeth Shoes are a giant in the action sports industry where footwear that’s both great looking and functional is an absolute must.
You only have to look at what people are wearing on the street to see what’s in fashion at the moment, and when your eyes are down you’ll see that every other foot is wearing Converse or Vans trainers. But what many don’t realize is that these brands have been standard footwear for skaters, BMX riders and surfers for decades and when you dig a bit deeper into the sports scene there are some fantastic styles that everyone can enjoy. Macbeth is the perfect example of pimp style but with Vegan ethics at the top of a very nicely iced cake.
Co-founded in 2002 by Blink 182 rocker, Tom Delonge, Macbeth brings stylish footwear that’s inspired by musicians and Cali sports culture to the masses. You don’t have to be Vegan to wear Macbeth and Delonge says that one of the driving forces behind the brand is the notion that more and more people are becoming interested in Vegan footwear and are aware that the products that go into regular shoes seriously detrimental to the environment.
With this is mind, Macbeth have developed a collection that anyone – Vegan or not, sporty or lazy, can easily rock! Available in a choice of fashionable colors, materials, and styles, the Macbeth Vegan shoes look great with everything you want to wear from suits and trousers to casual jeans. The Macbeth shoes are made from Vegan fabrics and materials that are not only durable, but comfortable so you can wear them all day, every day. They won’t break the bank either and starting at less than $50 they’re also a steal for an alternative to the regular casual styles available.
You can buy Macbeth shoes as well as Vegan apparel and accessories such as socks, wallets and backpacks on their online Vegan store.
You can also find their footwear at Extremepie.com, Zappos, and Journeys.
