Leather alternatives.

I just wanted to let you know that I loved The Vegetarian Resource Group's online Guide to Alternatives to Leather. I have been looking for hiking boots, and I now have some great leads!

I was really thrilled to see some Canadian companies listed, too. Just love it when we Canadians are not forgotten! I also wanted to send in a testimonial for my Matt and Nat wallet/purse. It is fashionable, but I thought it was going to be too big and bulky. Actually, unlike my previous wallets, I never lose this one, and it has a little handle that allows it to fit over my bicycle handlebars. It has been one terrific wallet; the best I've had!

Finally, as a ballroom dancer, I was required to have leather-soled shoes for many ballrooms and studios. I did a search a few months ago and there are vegan ballroom shoemakers/sellers in England and the U.S. (Sadly, I didn't find anything in Canada.) I didn't keep the links, but if you want to add it to the list at some point, that may be appreciated by the ballroom dancers, salsa dancers, Argentine tango dancers, etc.

Editor's Note: See pages 24-25 in this issue for hard-to-find non-leather alternatives. We also found a U.S. company that offers vegan ballroom and Latin dance shoes. Step One Dance Shoes lists various styles of custom-made vegan ballroom shoes in different colors for men and women. Visit their website at: or call (877) 719-8945.
