URGENT: Need vegan sweat free futbol/soccer cleats!

Link to purchase the item is a big plus.

Please help!

Bonus if union-made. No Nike or Adidas please. Of course, if they have great ball feel and soft touch and light weight and low profile, even better.

No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

How urgent is urgent?

I think vegetarian shoes (UK based) used to do them, but when I searched on their website they don't seem to have any.

I can email them and check if you like - they might be able to custom make some?

edited to remove comment about nike which was rather ill informed

Looked at the pair I got a few years ago and they are Nikes. Shame, as they otherwise fit your profile.

Always nice to be able to get union made vegan stuff though :)

okay maybe have a look at some of Mitre's products

This one is rather ugly but appears to be non leather (check details of course).

http://www.mitre.com/products/football/footwear/vandis.html

They have an ethical promise page that you can check out if you like http://www.mitre.com/ethical-promise.html

edited to say: back in the day at least Mitre were a big brand and made all the balls for the English Premier League

This is "urgent" in the sense that a friend is doing a contest. He wants sweat-free cleats. He's asked a few friends who do union work that if they can find cleats that they'd wear, then he'd be willing to buy them a gift pair along with his own.

So... I could find nothing. But if I do this quickly, and well, I *might* get a pair of cleats out of this. But if this is slow, then someone else will walk away with a new pair.

So far, I'm being led by a 6-year old report by Oxfam: http://www.oxfam.org/en/policy/offside_ ... rt_summary

The Nike thing is because I know that that I frankly couldn't wear Nike, and this friend couldn't wear Nike nor Adidas. Frankly, even though I'd wear Puma, they're the same in terms of sweat-free status.

It's difficult.

I'm interested in the Mitre's, though. That's a suggestion I hadn't explored! Thanks Lordmuppet!

The Mitre looks fine.
I found this: http://www.aperfectdealer.com/cgi-local ... 82ffa7b8a7

But it's not in my size. :(

You don't know if they're sweat-free, do you?
