As someone who never conformed to what most people saw as a normal diet and was considered by many to be vegetarian before it was “cool”, I was thrilled to see the huge selection of food items, personal care products, and clothing that suddenly became vegan-friendly.

These questions were prompted by necessary changes to my wardrobe, mainly in the shoe category. Because I am a person who walks almost everywhere, I’m very practical when it comes to footwear.
