You can contact them about it, and they'll certainly be able to help. I know for a fact that the blackspot sneakers they sell are 100% vegan and union made. Those come large and narrow for their size, and aren't too great as "formal" shoes.
I don't know about vegetarian-shoes.co.uk but I do imagine that since many of their shoes are made in the UK, they might have a good idea if those products are made in UK sweatshops or union shops.
Eitherway, you'd have to call. I know that the Kubersiak sisters (who run Mooshoes) are really informed about the issue and can help you find shoes that work for you.

They are a company based in Melbourne, so I got to check out their shop in person. They also sell online and you can put in custom designs.
Now that I finally bought my digital camera, I took a snap of them....
I've had them for about 4 months now, and I have to say they are the most comfy, robust pair of business-like shoes I have ever had. I cannot recommend veganwares enough. Even if you don't live in Australia.
