A French brand making vegan shoes with a name that could have only been dreamed up by notorious animal-rights crusader (and um, legendary crooner) Morrissey? Consider us interested. Meet Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather
, the Parisian label pushing conscientious footwear safely out of the dichotomous realm of either really dowdy or really, really expensive. Championing a colorful, playful, heritage look, Good Guys (for short) is out to convince potential naysayers that shoes need not sacrifice style in order to be vegan.
Reminiscent of Rachel Antonoff for Bass
, Good Guys makes classics with a twist: oxfords, oft-two-tone, in fun colors like baby pink and canary yellow, and penny loafers in dreamy ocean blue or a red/pink colorblock. Made of canvas, vegan leather, or other materials (denim, for instance), the shoes are a sneaky way to wear your eating philosophy on your feet. All available online
and clocking in at under €200 (often well under), these kicks are solidly in that niche between super-luxe and fast-fashion — a really cozy and, apparently, cute, place to be.
