    Hello! Thank you for this helpful and informative article! I, like you, have a passion for beautiful Vegan shoes after I went Vegan 10 years ago. I did notice a number of these companies listed are no longer manufacturing unfortunately. I was fortunate enough to snag 2 pairs of Charmone beautiful shoes before they stopped. Keep up the good work!
