And we’re back! Last time around we featured some great new stuff from NYC based Cliff Belts. (Check their spring 2014 stuff here) Today we are very excited to be doing a little collaboration and giving away their Sienna Billfold Wallet! For the longest, whenever you wanted to get a wallet, the only non-leather alternative was canvas. But no more! The Billfold is cork, harvested from sustainable cork tree bark. I was able to see Cliff’s stuff in person over the weekend, and I was very surprised how soft and natural cork looks and feels. It’s definitely not stiff and hard like wine bottle variety. I would compare it quite favorably to actual leather, which makes sense since it’s being made into belts and wallets. The Billfold is lined on the inside with a cotton polyester blend, and features a three card pocket and one large ID pocket. The dye is a handsome brown, or Sienna, which is 100% natural.
Here are the contest rules:

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Maciej Kobus, the winner of our Emerica 2013 Tempster giveaway! It took a while – the shoes were held up in customs for 3 weeks – but our fearless and persistent Polish winner was undeterred. He finally got the shoes and whew, they fit! This is what he had to say about them:
I can’t be happier with the new shoes since they are a pro model of well known skateboarder and my huge inspiration – Ed Templeton. I’m not the biggest fan of high/mid shoes but they seem to fit nicely. I didn’t have a chance to wear them for a longer time but they feel comfortable. Also huge thanks to Ed and the guys at Emerica for keeping it real and staying true for all these years.
We couldn’t have put it better, dude. Thanks again for entering. And thank you, Emerica, for keeping it real and participating and not hating on the vegan skaters out there. We send much love out there, keep up the good work Ed Templeton and everyone over there at Emerica.
One more pic after the jump!

Following up on our last post, the good people at Emerica are so gracious as to hook us up for Vegan Kicks’ second shoe contest! Our blogging is erratic right now, but we’re trying to make every one count! We are psyched to be giving away one pair of Emerica Tempster (green or black), featured above and below. This is one out of a bunch of Emerica’s vegan shoes (see our previous post on their newest offerings), and we all thought it was appropriate that this be the one, considering Ed’s longstanding vegan lifestyle. I know that these shoes won’t be for everyone, but I know all the skaters out there will be chomping at the bits to get a pair. So, onto the contest!

Congratulations to Jon Clark of London, Canada for winning the first ever Vegan Kicks holiday giveaway! Courtesy of Keep, he will be receiving a free pair of vegan shoes!
When told about his lucky day, he had this very thoughtful and eloquent thought about his animal friendly lifestyle:
” I don’t understand people who regress to living against their values after learning the uncomfortable truths about our society’s relationship with animals. However, it did take me a while to finally confront and bring myself to witness the cruelty that I knew was happening. After enough education and some visceral reactions to videos and stories the choice was clear to me. Intrinsically, I knew for so long that I was ignoring the suffering of certain kinds of animals while caring deeply for others. I’m glad that I had so many good friends who helped me along the way.”
Right on brother. Well, we are so super stoked about the reception we got about this contest. People all over the world answered the call. We are sorry we couldn’t make more of you winners. You guys are the best. Thank you so much for visiting, reading, following, and commenting. You guys didn’t get the free shoes, but you are all winners in our hearts.
We fully expect to do more giveaways and contests in the future. Please, readers – if you have any brands or shoes that you really want, comment or email us. We will try to get you some free product. Vendors, companies, marketers, advertisers, big wigs – if you want to get your brand out there, here is the place. We have global reach, son! We don’t care where you’re from or what your selling (so long as it’s vegan). Just let us know and we’ll try to plug your goods.
Until next time!

Vegan Kicks is super excited to announce its first contest/giveaway ever! We are even more stoked to be partnering with Keep, one of our favorite vegan shoes companies to feature on this site. We will be giving away ONE PAIR of Keep shoes of your choice. Check out their entire line here. The Contest begins NOW, and ends December 1, 2012. Perfect timing for the holidays!
VK has been around for a little over three years now, which is crazy itself. Over time, we have been gradually building the site and gaining steady readership. We are not web designers or coders. We’re just a few regular people who saw a need for more info on vegan shoes, and started blogging about it. We have tried to give you good, solid content on a regular basis. We are also trying to build a bit of a community, a place where people can come to look, discuss, and learn from each other.
Of course we’re not all the way there yet, but the support and enthusiasm we’ve seen from readers all over the world has been so awesome. We can’t believe how many people outside of the States is interested in this stuff. TO OUR INTERNATIONAL PEEPS: Please enter! Keep will ship to you! In any case, we are in debt to our readers for supporting us, and we felt that giving away a pair of shoes is the least we could do. Hopefully, there will be more to come!
