decent offer of shoes, belts, books, T-shirts, ... - Edit

I haven't been to the new location yet, but visited the shop on the old location a couple of times.
That was a rather small shop, stacked with goodies. Also some nice books, and T-shirts with prints.

Oedered a pair of shoes through the webshop once, everything went very smooth.

beautiful shop - Edit

I love this shop, they sell high quality modern vegan clothing and a few other products such as books, confectionary and cosmetics. The only problem is that I don't have the room in my case to bring many of their products back or enough money to buy them as it's quite expensive. I have so far purchased a cool anti meat vegan shopping bag, the vegan passport and a vegan fridge magnet. I would love to buy some of their stylish shoes one day.

Pros: 100% vegan, stylish

Cons: not cheap

Lovely shop - Edit

We just chanced upon this shop and I was impressed in its variety of shoes and clothing, the small sections for beauty, food and book were also well stocked and if I had more room in my luggage I would have probably bought more!

Nice little shop - Edit

A small shop but lots of different vegan shoes, clothes and more importantly vegan chocolate and a little ice cream freezer. I stocked up on Go Max bars and got a coconut bliss salted caramel ice lolly. Great find!

Pros: Vegan snacks

Good store for shoes, belts, bags and books - Edit

This is the vegan store in Amsterdam to buy good shoes, belts, bags, books and other things like a few clothing items, cosmetics and snacks. They sell items of Vegetarian Shoes, Novacas, Bourgeois Boheme, Ethical Wares and others. Be aware that the store is small,so they do not have many sizes and all models in stock! It is best to order them online and pick them up in the store later. They offer several payment systems and have low delivery costs for convenience. Besides that, you can always pass by to check for cookbooks or vegan cosmetics that regular drugstores do not have.

Small vegan shop - Edit

It is a small shop but has a large variety of products. During my Amsterdam vizit, I bought some cosmetics from "Beauty without cruelty" BWC and I like them a lot.

Déception - Edit

Après une longue marche pour pouvoir enfin magasiner et dépenser mes économies, malgré un désir de dépenser (🙂), je suis retourné à mon auberge avec plus d'euros en poche que je ne l'aurais cru... Peu de t-shirt à ma taille, une seule paire de chaussure à ma taille mais décoloré et sale (...), aucun hootie à ma taille. Bref, il aurait avantage à avoir un inventaire plus vaste... Ne valait pas le détour finalement... J'ai même semblé déranger la vendeuse en posant mes questions... Je suis tout de même rentrer avec deux sacs de tissus et 20 euros en moins!

Pros: L'idée!

Cons: L'amabilité de l'employée , Le peu de variétés des chaussures, Le peu de variétés des tailles

Small but awesome - Edit

I really loved this place. It's small but has everything you need, from clothes and shoes to cosmetics and food.
I ended up not buying anything, since I was limited to airplane hand luggage only, but would have loved to otherwise!
I loved how the worker gave us the space so we could explore by our own.

Pros: Nice place, Friendly staff

Great but not big enough! - Edit

Visited Vega-life to look at shoes and tee-shirts. I love those types of place and also I love to find veg tee shirts!
They had a great selection of shoes, belts, books and tee shirts but unfortunately the shoes sizes we requested were not available. We are not able to wait to have them ordered since we are in Amsterdam on vacation Regardless, they had Vego chocolate and that is amazing!!! The lady was friendly and very patient with our multiple requests!

Pros: Vegan shop, Eco friendly choices, Friendly service

Cons: Cannot carry all the sizes

Online store - Edit

I bought some shoes online : It took few days before having a confirmation mail, but the shoes finally arrived after a week (I'm living in France).
No problem apart this problem of confirmation mail.
Shoes are "made in england" and seemed to be of good quality.






Updated from previous review on 2016-12-06

Pros: fast shipment, quality products (apparently)

Cons: no "immediate"confirmation mail after online order

Incredibly friendly staff who were happy to help me and tell a lot about themselves and their store. They have loads of vegan stuff from clothes to cosmetics. I walked out with a pair of ballerinas who are still going strong. Definitely worth the return!

Pros: Everything

Cons: a little expensive, but worth the quality

Great vegan shoes and more - Edit

When I was living in Amsterdam, I regularly came here to get my beauty products, snacks, books and sometimes shoes. Now, I don't live there anymore, so I only come once or twice a year. I really like their collection of shoes. In addition, they sell some high-quality clothes and have a nice collection of vegan beauty products, vitamins, books and tasty bars. I recommend any vegan that goes to Amsterdam to visit this place.

Pros: 100% vegan, In the centre, Friendly owner and staff

Cons: Small, Closed Sunday, Pricey

Nice - Edit

It is good for vegan clothing in Amsterdam. I bought shoes because my shoes were in a bad condition due to heavy rain. This store saved my life, but the shoes were not comfortable. Since I got back from Amsterdam, I have not worn them much. I also bought a cloth bag (probably hand-painted, with a nice picture of a pig shouting), which is very durable and I use it a lot under any weather condition. Shop staff was neither rude nor warm, but OK. It may be hard to find such vegan clothing shops in some other European cities, so it did not matter for me that it was not large.

CUTE! :) - Edit

I stumbled upon this place by accident, and I am glad I did! They have a very nice selection of vegan shoes & products as well. I got a really cool deodorant and a face wash for 18EURO which I gather for organic and vegan stuff is really good! The lady in the shop was really nice as well. Definitely a fun find!

nice but very small - Edit

First of all, the store is really nice, as well as the staff. But the variant of clothing is limited, and it's not very cheap! You can find better places in Berlin or even my hometown (Muenster, Germany). But this is all Amsterdam seems to provide in puncto vegan shoes, and cloths. To put it in a nutshell it's nice, but I've seen way better.

Pros: the store itself, staff, products

Cons: expensive, limited range of products

Ice cream! - Edit

As an ice cream lover, and someone who enjoys variety and interesting tastes, this place was brilliant! If you're travelling, you can buy the small tubs (spoon included), although the selection of small ones doesn't include every flavour. The coffee one was my favourite :)

Worth for shoes alone - Edit

If I lived closer I would have been a regular guest. This shop is tiny but they still have an amazing selection. Most of all the shoes. I finally found some hiking boots that are comfortable! I have unusual feet, so ordering shoes online is just no option for me, I need to try at least 10 pairs before one fits properly.
They also have cosmetics, books, clothing, accessories... etc.

What a variety! - Edit

Having huge problems to find my VS Spider XT in Germany (in black, my size *and* under €140!) I overheard a conversation in the Vegabond Café about a store nearby. Thanks to the owner I got exact directions - et voilá: New shoes at a decent price!
If I'd live nearby, I'd come here more often, but sadly, Amsterdam is a bit far away...

Pros: Large variety, Decent prices, Kind owner

Need new vegan shoes? Go there! - Edit

We find this veggie place completely by random during a storm. And what a great place! They have a wide range of different shoes, perfectly know their products and are very helpful and friendly. The shop also sell belts, t-shirts, wallets, bags, books and vegan ice creams! Where I didn't find the shoes and the belt I wanted in Avesu, Berlin, I find it there in Amsterdam. I've bought McBeth shoes and a vegetarian shoes belt at fair prices.

The shop is well located, not far from Vegabond and Dr Blend. It's like a vegan neighborhood! Sure to come back here to see what's new here at my next stay in Amsterdam.

Pros: huge choice of vegan shoes and stuff, friendly and knowledgeable staff, fair prices

Great store for vegan & vegetarian merchandise - Edit

Every time I am in Amsterdam I visit Vega-Life to see what's new. They have a wide selection of shoes - whether you need an every-day shoe, hiking boots or a fine pair of shoes that fits under a suit. Back home I got positive comments on the suit-shoes I bought here and you should have seen their faces when I told them it was a vegan shoe made of recycled material!

Besides the many pairs of shoes that I have bought here, there is also the occasional t-shirt or other merchandise like books or vitamins.

The shop owners are very friendly and very knowledgeable about all the products they sell. They can tell you anything about the origins of the product and the material used.

If you're in Amsterdam this is a must-visit!

Pros: Wide collection of shoes, Knowledgeable staff
