Many of you know Matt & Nat as a maker of excellent vegan bags, but whoa, we didn’t know they were in the shoe game! These choice kicks dropped earlier this spring, and sorry for being late on this but we had to post about them as soon as we found out. Currently, they only have two models, and they stick pretty closely to the Matt & Nat aesthetic – minimalist design, high quality PU materials. They also feature a chunky high 1″ sole. Unfortunately the low top looks like it’s sold out, but hopefully they’ll be available soon!
Today we have 2015 spring and summer lineup of bags and wallets for men by Matt & Nat. This Montreal based vegan bag label is known for its high end, sophisticated offerings, and this season does not disappoint. Their stuff is beautiful and functional – not for everyone, but perfect for those seeking a certain look.
A few weeks ago, we shot some really great photos out by the Bridge. Finally putting them up! We were so lucky to get hooked up with amazing clothes from our friends at Three Leaves. And we’re thrilled to show off all this great stuff. Unfortunately, I had to model some of the shoes, so you’ll have to subjected to my ashy ankles.
Pictured above are the Veja Mediterranee (Camel White) and Taua (California Blood). As we wrote in our preview, Veja uses organic cotton canvas, rubber from rubber trees (not synthetic), and fair trade labor. OF course these are vegan.

Vegan Kicks is proud to give a huuuuge shout out to the venerable Farm Sanctuary and this unique special event they are putting together. If you are in the New York City area, you gotta go to FASHION LOVES ANIMALS, a benefit fashion show and cocktail party, on May 4th at SIR Stage 37 in Manhattan. This stylish night benefiting Farm Sanctuary will honor Vaute Couture President and Creative Director Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, who made history this year with the first all-vegan label to show at New York Fashion Week.

I have on occasion strayed from the content of this site’s namesake and today I want to do a little show and tell on vegan wallets. I am actually in the market for a new wallet, since my old one is on its last legs and is surviving on a bit of packing tape. To save me from future embarrassment, it is time for me to renew and upgrade.
