Non-Leather School shoes

*sigh* I miss primary school. We were allowed to wear runners everyday!

Evidently school is going to start up soon.
My current school shoes are leather, but I desperately want non-leather ones. (Even though I hate fake leather as well, but a cow didn't die)
So does anyone know any good brands? I need them to be cheap. Otherwise my mum probably won't buy them (even buying them now is doubtful) as my current leather (puke) shoes are still good.
Where can I buy leather-free shoes? If none of them are cheap, can you please tell me anyway?

Kmart, Target, Payless, etc. Abundance of fake leather school shoes or school appropriate shoes, and cheap.

Hi happy

Department stores! The cheapest ones are the most likely to be non-leather, which is great for you. I was always able to find them when I was at school, you shouldn't have a problem. If they're leather, they'll often have a fairly obvious tag or sticker that says so. You'll have to look a little more carefully to make sure the lining isn't leather, although it should say it somewhere, sometimes inside the shoe or on the box. Good luck!

happy Spendless have quite a few different school shoes from fake leather. They are cheapish - $30 or so.

I just bought two cheapo pairs from target [or big w, can't remember]. As it said in my school handbook thingy that all I needed were "black lace-up school shoes" they were fine. once the vice principal asked me about them and I just said that i'm a vegan and that these were the only things I could find so she let it go.
