Happy Holidays Yall.

Just in the crib enjoying a much needed day off of work. I am constantly reminded of how much of a blessing it is to have a job to go to from people I know. These are folk who've had either their unemployment run out with no job prospects or just plain out dont have the connections to find a job in this market.  But dam if this job isnt an ass kicker! One day soon I will be getting paid well for doing something I love.

In the mean time since I have time off from work, I have the time to shoe stalk, blog about it.  Going to see Django! in a couple, so let's make this quick.  Today's topic is vegan shoes again. So if vegan means no living beings were hurt during the production of a product.....My feet have been supporting 'vegan' shoes all my life.  Eventhough, I think to be truly vegan is almost impossible.  For example, because I'm not the most vigilant pescatarian, I had some jalapeno mac n cheese that was out of this world....I especially liked the smoky flavor. But anybody who knows me, KNOWS I don't eat swine, pork, pig, hog, bacon.  Well this one slipped by me because I wasnt there during the production of said mac n cheese. And it was in an environment where it would have been rude to ask the ingredients since it was all I could eat on the menu anyway besides the rolls. My point is that there is no way to prove that no living beings weren't hurt during the production of a pair of shoes if you weren't a part of production or there when they were made.

After a quick google, Ive found ladies out there who are extreme shoe fans  as I am but who are also dedicated vegans who have THROWN AWAY good leather, snake skin, nubuck, patent, suede shoes because of their Veganism.  I am inspired by their dedication to their beliefs but DEFINITELY not encouraged. My momma taught me to not THROW AWAY good leather shoes.  Now I wouldn't be against giving away(if needed) a good pair of shoes, but you wouldn't catch me putting them in the trash...and I guess giving away something leather would defeat the whole purpose of veganism though.  Anywho, here are some great shoes that have absolutely nothing to do with leather....but still great quality:

Great quality shoe for the price.  Looks just as good in person. I got the brown up top.
