    I have a few pairs of shoes purchased from Ethical Wares; also a few pairs of New Balance running shoes, bought from specialist sports shops. The New Balance ones are made in England at the old K shoes factory in Maryport, Cumbria.

    www.newbalance.co.uk/

    Some of the New Balance range contain leather, so you'll have to search to find the ones that are vegan, however Ethical Wares sell some of the New Balance range that are vegan.

    I love the Vegan line of TOMS shoes. They have great designs and are super comfortable. They do sell them in quite a few local stores apart from their website. Also, it looks like you're in PA, but if you find yourself in NYC, I love the store Mooshoes which sells only vegan brands.

    Dansko has a vegan line as well. Price $80-$120 but worth it.
