I love op-shopping. Nothing makes me feel happier being stylish as all heck from other people’s trash. I made a choice over a year ago to not buy anything brand new, and I stuck to it about 99% of the time (couldn’t resist a few cheeky vegan t-shirts)
But I’ve always had issues with op shop shoes for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it’s really hard to find a good quality pair of second hand shoes that are also vegan. Secondly – feet. Enough said really.
So I saved up and decided to invest in 3 pairs of ‘Vegetarian Boots’ – knowing that their reputation for good quality long lasting vegan boots was pretty good.
The only thing I was mildly concerned about? – PACKAGING!!! My mind swarmed with visions of bubble wrap, plastic post-bags and styrofoam. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my ENTIRE order came wrapped up in a cardboard bag, complete with cardboard boxes and nothing but paper in it – JOY!
Delicious paper parcel
So long story short, those of you who are trying to work out how to avoid plastic when buying new shoes – give Vegetarian Shoes a go!
