NOHARM Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 Collection (Phase 1)

Greetings everyone.  I am back from a very nice mini-vacation, which I was lucky enough to spend at my friend’s balling shore house.  There were giant HD TV’s in almost every room, including the two master bathrooms!

Being back to everyday life means, for most people, getting back to work.  Some of you don’t have to dress in business attire, but some, like me, have to wear suits or other white collar uniform everyday.  Which makes this post very appropriate for me personally.  NOHARM has recently released their upcoming fall and winter line of line.  The “Phase 1″ shoes include brown wingtips and brogues, as well as a sweet black boot.  These would be perfect to wear with my work wardrobe!  Whether you’re working on Wall Street, or you just like to look dapper, you can’t go wrong with any of these.

NOHARM also adheres to the highest ethical standards in their business practices.  Obviously, they are vegan.  They even conform to the Vegan Society’s standards (not sure what that is) and they have the certificate to prove it.   They are hand-made in Italy – no child labor.  Even the boxes are bio-degradable and printed with environmentally-friendly ink!

The only downer is the price tag… but the way I see it, if you are going to buy a pair of nice dress shoes, you’re going to be dropping serious dough anyway.  And if you really can’t buy leather shoes, your options in the business category are very limited.  If you want something cheaper, I would recommend Moo Shoes.  The ones they have are reasonably priced, but in terms of style and quality, they can’t compete.  I’m still waiting for a brand that makes sophisticated yet affordable vegan dress shoes.

Also, if you’re interested in buying the existing NOHARM line, check them out Here on Amazon.  I think the Brogue is actually available there, but I’m not 100% sure if it’s the same.  I don’t want to say it’s new when it might not be.

Be on the lookout for Phase 2!

    How do these hold up over time? I bought a pair from Moo Shoes like 2 years ago and they started falling apart in a month, so for dress shoes for work I wound up just going with buying a used pair off of Etsy. Not vegan I know, but I’m not blowing at least $100 + on a pair of mediocre shoes that fall apart real fast when I could give a second life to a real nice looking pair of leather shoes for $40 to $60 tops.

    Yeah, good call on buying a pair of vintage leather shoes. They’re already made right? As to NOHARM, that’s too bad they fall apart after a few months. If the uppers hold up, you should be able to re-sole them at a shoe guy. I didn’t even know they sold NOHARM at Moo Shoes.

    No no no, it was a different brand than NOHARM, and the upper part was the part really falling apart. Really turned me off to fake leather.

    Oh… Sorry about that. I’m not surprised and I feel you on that one. Where do you go for dress type stuff, vintage stores? Any recommendations in NYC?

    Sorry it took long to get back but I go with Etsy, vintage type stores might be good too. I don’t live in NYC and haven’t been in a while so I don’t think I can make too good of a recommendation.
