nice call dude! These are 55 GBP which is an improvement on 75! Will keep looking but suspect this is the best I'll find.

by these i mean http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk/mens_-_unisex_shoes/office_shoe_black/10579_p.html

also found these http://www.vegetarian-shoes.co.uk/mens_-_unisex_shoes/antique_oxford_black/13762_p.html for 40 GBP but i think they are a bit ugly

super cheap at 25 GBP http://www.alternativestores.com/ethical-shop/Vegetarian-Shoes/Mens-Vegetarian-Shoes/Shoes/Black-Saddle-Casual-Shoe/prod_11.html but sadly they don't have in men's 6 yes i am a small muppet :(

I've got a pair of those, and I'm happy with them. Nice for when I want to look smart occasionally.
Also worth a look at Veganline, they have a few styles of smart shoes, made in the UK. I've got a pair of their bouncing boots, and I like them. http://www.veganline.com/

They are breathable too which is good.
Although the effeminate nature of my username may suggest otherwise, my gender actually falls into the male category.

Have you look at boy's school shoes? They'll usually at least go up to a 6 if the shop does older boy's stuff and are cheaper. A lot of them are 'synthetic' which I assume means pleather and don't look like kids shoes (so long as you avoid the velcro). I'm not sure where isn't sweat shopped though

It looks like next in the UK have a load of non leather shoes in this seasons range. In there printed catalogue they are clearly marked non leather which is nice to see. http://www.next.co.uk/x502594s3#821252x50

I got my last shoes from BHS. Nearly all their kids shoes aren't leather. I just checked their men's shoes too and looks like a lot of them aren't leather and all are clear marked

Currently in need of new smart shoes for work. I did get a pair from Next but ended up taking them back as they felt really cheap (not surprising given they are so cheap, but you take my point), plus the reviews on their website are pretty bad in terms of durability.

Ended up just ordering another pair of the Kent Clarks from Vegetarian Shoes. A bit dull & it pains me to spend that much on a pair of shoes but I know they'll last years.

I just bought a pair of shoes for work from Beyond Leather: http://eco-vegan-shoes.com/index.php/be ... ather.html. They were at a Vegan Fair and they guy was very enthusiastic about their ethics, not just vegan credentials. I really like them - they're the London Walkers I got (http://eco-vegan-shoes.com/index.php/be ... -shoe.html)

I would have to say that up to now shoes has been a drawback to veganism. My feet are a state and they stink.

don't know about dull. A young lady recently confided in me that my vegetarian shoes kicks were instrumental in her being hopelessly afflicted with Muppet fever. True story. :D
