We have ordered from their website many times as they are mainly an online business. The storefront has limited hours during the week as well as by appointment. We made an appointment to come in on a Saturday. The display room is small, but packed full of shoes, belts, wallets and other accessories. They have a great selection of mens dress shoes which is one of reasons we came in. It's harder to find vegan shoes for men than it is for women and Dirk wanted to try on multiple pairs to find the right fit. I was able to get some ladies dress shoes for work as well. It's really nice to never worry about what material the shoes are made out of. I look forward to returning to check out boots and winter coats once they are in stock again for the season.Pros: all vegan shoes and accesories, great selection of mens dress shoes, easy parking
The Alternative Outfitters showroom is a long walk from the busy walking and shopping strip of Colorado Blvd. We didn't know that, so my friends and I walked for at least 10-15 minutes to get to the shop. The traffic was loud and the sun bright. When we finally found the showroom, we were a bit underwhelmed by its appearance and size. It's not designed to appear as a retail store. There's no fancy paint and sign on the outside. Just simple. And the place is very small but packed with a range of products: shoes, clothes, purses, and other apparel and accessories. All vegan, of course. I think it's probably easier to see what's online. But if you want to come and try on something before you buy, then definitely stop in. Just be sure you phone ahead and make sure that the showroom will be open for you.
We were expecting more, its just the size of a small reception area for their warehouse/shipping area. They are super nice, though.
