The Best Vegan Shoes for Men

Stylish vegan shoes aren’t as hard to find as they once were. Today, many brands offer styles crafted from cruelty-free materials as opposed to using animal hides like suede and leather for the upper. To help narrow down your choices, FN did some research and rounded up a few of our favorite options on the market from popular brands like Dr. Martens and Merrell. Our curated selection includes an oxford, a lace-up ankle boot and a model for hiking, so whether you’re looking for shoes for the office, a night out or to hit the trails, one of our picks should suit your needs.

1. Dr. Martens 1461 Vegan Oxford

The oxfords have a high-shine synthetic leather upper with a subtle two-tone finish.

Pros: They also come in a dark cherry red colorway. Air-cushioned soles are abrasion and slip-resist.

Cons: Some wearers may find these take some time to break in.
