Yeah, Vegan Kicks is moving beyond kicks. We weren’t planning on branching out. It just happened. Sometimes we see something nice and want to put it on the blog, but it’s not wearable on your feet. We’re hoping we can change that and still keep the site as focused as possible. We will be sticking to clothing – the whole food thing, and animal rights advocacy aspect is being done a thousand times better than I can ever do it. So we’ll stick to posting about things you can buy to impress your friends with unique, yet ethical fashion sensibilities.
This Ecote canvas and fake leather backpack is a good find. I’ve always wanted one of these military inspired bags with the fold down top, instead of the traditional zipper that goes down the side. It is a more traditional, down to earth look. The downside is that it’s probably not very water resistant, and the lighter colors will likely stain. But you can always throw it in the wash. Of course, the leather accents are synthetic.
NOTE that this bag is designated for women, but to me, it seems unisex. I didn’t notice until I saw the picture of the women modeling it. Okay, it was under the women’s section too – whatever.
Available at Urban Outfitters for $68, in green, grey, ivory, and black. Click for more specs and info.
