When you live in Germany, buying vegan shoes is normally not an easy task. Granted, you can order online from vegetarianshoes.co.uk, however, the shipment fees from the UK are considerable and there is always the nagging feeling what you would do if the shoes are too small or too big.
That's where going to the 'Bekleidungssyndikat' can help a lot, because they normally have the most sold models of such shoes in stock, so you can determine your size, and they order for you at prices that are below what you would have to pay yourself if you have to pay for the shipping. And if the shoe arrives and still does not fit, then they can either sell it to their other customers or send it back the next time they need to make a return. However, judging from my visits there they normally do not have to send back anything, as there is quite a demand for good vegan shoes at the fairs they are attending. So from my side a great thumbs up for that service. Only downside is their opening hours, which are not exectly excessive.Pros: convenient to try shoes, friendly, good prices
Cons: opening hours
