Impress your friends with your cruelty free shoe collection this spring and summer and show them that fashion can easily be compassionate. It’s all about choices and we make it simple for you to wear the latest styles without the guilt of leather. One of our favorite vegan sandals this season is the Haarp Vegan Wedge by Madden Girl. An intricate geometric laser cut design makes these fashion forward sandals pop. You’ll love the faux wood wedge heel with faux leather cap and the gorgeous cognac color makes these vegan sandals the perfect versatile pair. They’ll look stunning with a bold colored mini dress or your favorite pair of cut off jeans and a simple tank.

We think these vegan sandals would look smart dressed up or down and will look sweet with those heart shaped sunnies you’ve been dying to wear.
