I was so happy to hear that my town was getting a vegan shoe store, but with Vshoen we got so much more! When I attended the grand opening, I was greeted very warmly by the owners - Regan and Devyn. They are not only passionate about their shop and ethical/vegan footwear. They are passionate about making sure their customers feel welcome and cared for. Regan gladly brought out nearly every shoe in the store in my size and I never feel any pressure that you often do at high end boutiques (Vshoen definitely falls into that category!). I have so far bought three pairs of shoes from this store and am very happy. I get loads of compliments from friends and most cannot believe the products are vegan. Regan and Devyn have taken care to ensure they have excellent quality product in store and combined that with excellent service as well. Finally, they have done amazing things with the decor and with branding. They are sure to be around a long time and I look forward to being a long-time customer.

Pros: Great selection, Fair pricing, Compassion + great customer service
Cons: There are no cons!

Unique Boutique in the Heart of Victoria

If you haven't dropped in at VShoen Boutique located in the heart of downtown Victoria, now is the times my friends! This store offers a wide range of products from handbags to socks to belts to boots ... all of high quality at affordable prices. You can feel good too by shopping cruelty free :) VShoen has a cozy feel and the proprietors are friendly, helpful and passionate about the store and their cause. If you don't live in Victoria then visit their online store to browse and shop.

Pros: Friendly, Awesome stock, Appeal to wide client range

I had the pleasure of visiting Vshoen in person because I live on Vancouver Island.I would like to start of by saying the shop is beautiful,different feel than any shoe store i have ever been in.Secondly the owner was a real gem of a gal who is so passionate about what she is doing ,I not only did I find exactly what I was looking for but I also had a wonderful conversation with the owner about the leather industry.I will definitely make Vshoen a regular stop on my visits to victoria

Pros: great stock, nice feel to the store, good prices

Disappointed

I was initially excited to discover this site. However, I found the site tedious to navigate and product information is less than minimal. I like to know what a $15-$20 pair of socks is made of before I spend the money . . . and the same goes for a $200 pair of shoes. I would not return to this site for shopping.

Pros: good intentions
Cons: site tedious to navigate, little product information
