Robin & Vegetarian shoes : A post by Inder
I met Robin Webb back in 1995 when I decided I would attempt to take MATT & NAT from university project/business plan to reality. En route to India I stopped off in Brighton, a beautiful seaside town in the UK. When asking for directions I was told by a local to look for edible shoes made from lettuce wraps, when I saw the sign, I knew I was at my destination
Robin changed the vegan fashion world when he founded VEGETARIAN SHOES back in 1991. I can’t think of another vegan footwear brand that has been around as long, it may even be the first vegan brand in the universe ! The products are indestructible, below are the airseals, I’m the proud owner of 3 styles.
Over the last couple of years a lot of vegan brands have come and gone. It’s nice to see that VEGETARIAN SHOES have remained true to form, 20 years later nothing compares to their timelessness and durability. Low key and timeless, much like Robin himself, they’re the kind of styles that you start to like and end up loving
In North America best place to buy them is at mooshoes, they also sell on their site in Europe
If you own a pair, send in pics!
