Well, I'm moving to a new highschool which forces students to where the "school accepted" shoes. They are leather and I am completely again leather/wool/etc.

My feet are quite small, so does anyone know where I can get male vegan shoes?

Thanks happy

Kmart, Target, Big W, Payless, Spendless, etc. happy You might need to check labels and such but most will be synthetic, not leather.

If you have a larger budget there's always Vegan Wares, that's in Melbourne though, I'm not sure about anywhere in SA. Good luck happy

I was about to add, the term they normally use is black lace up shoes, so I bought volleys, and as much as they wanted to deny me being able to wear said shoes, they couldn't as they match said description of black lace up shoes. tongue If it says leather in the rule book, write down the genuine, well argued reasons why you don't wear leather, and discuss it with your principle. They can't force you to wear or consume anything that is against your beliefs. peace

i have the same issue at my school, so i got volleys to start the year. but then they banned canvas shoes and said they HAD to be leather. so i was like o_o, no way am I wearing leather shoes. Spendless has some that are around $20 i think, and they're slip-ons but still fully enclosed leather-looking shoes. or the billabong factory near mine had synthetic black lace-ups on for 2 for $30 in the holidays, hell yeah :3
good luck!
