where to buy VEGAN CHILDREN'S SHOES (and clothes) in the UK

Vegan kids shoes are ones which do not contain leather or animal based glues. Ideally they are made under good labour conditions, and with sustainable fabrics.  For example, they could use fake leather made from urban plant waste.  Vegan children's clothes avoid wool fabrics and feather down fillings.  It is not always easy to tell.


Babies and children typically grow out of their clothes very quickly, so there is a lot of choice in second hand shops, try: Revivo*Oxfam Online*, Preloved*, Vinted*, eBay*YoungPlanetOlioFreecycle + alternativesTrash nothing, GumtreeDepop, Local council and NCT nearly new clothes and nappy sales, Local Facebook groups or special interest, such as the Nappy Lady Buying and Selling group.

Types of shoes:


Toddler vegan shoes

Vegan first walker shoes for baby. Shoes are only necessary when a baby learns to walk.  Prior to this people use them for aesthetic reasons.  We managed to get on the feet, and keep on the feet: ankle welly boots, moccasins, plimsolls.  There was a short period when baby struggled with shoes and preferred to be barefoot. They can now wear anything, preferring barefoot shoes.

Shoes: Veo*, M&S

Grippy socks: are handy inside for little ones who have just learnt to walk or crawl. We also send them to nursery, where they like children to have slippers. Ethical Superstore*, Frugi*

Welly boots: We found ankle length welly boots are possible to both put on the foot and then stay there.  At first they wouldn't go on, but Baby Vegan seems to have learnt how to hold their foot to help us now.  At first Baby Vegan had some trouble walking, but got the hang of it.  One fell off when Baby Vegan was in their carrier, probably on the bus.

Moccasin slipper socks: Thick socks with a firmer, grippier sole.  Ours mostly stay on the baby, but did need adjustment occasionally when the foot falls off the sole. Kidly*

Play shoes: Soft, waterproof socks which tie with a strap. I have witnessed toddlers walking in these. eBay*


School vegan shoes

A selection of black, non-leather footwear for school or funerals.  There is a Facebook group for vegan school shoes UK.  You can buy school uniforms from Ethical Superstore*.

Types of shoes
Vegan children's shoes

Recycled coats, waterproof trousers/ overalls/ gloves

Faded Shapes


These vegan coats are made from recycled plastic.  Waterproof snowsuits, pramsuits, or overalls are also good for my accident prone toddler who often falls in puddles.  The suit helps to keep the water from going up their shirt.  Once a child become better at walking, a waterproof coat and trousers combination makes it easier for taking them for a wee.

Polarn o Pyret label some coats and waterproofs as vegan.  They also sell synthetic, recycled gloves which are not labelled vegan. Neck warmer scarfs can be bought in recycled synthetic or organic cotton fabric.  Colours and black for school uniform.

Baby Vegan wore baby-grows and pram suits with a two-way zip until they were a toddler, since zips were so much quicker than poppers.  Built-in socks meant we didn't lose socks, and in the Wondersuit they can be turned out for barefoot walking/ crawling practice.  Wearing a full- body suit meant there was no tummy or ankle flesh flapping out making Baby Vegan cold.  Baby also wears a zipped hoodie.  The hood means we don't lose hats, and it doubled as reins or a sleep mask.  The zip makes it easier to take on and off.  Baby previously wore vests with less bottom poppers, and folds at the shoulders so as they can pull up or down more easily.

Once Baby Vegan's legs grew longer they started to wear trousers with their training pants, as this is easier for the baby toilet training.  I waited until their trousers stayed around their ankles when pulled down.

The Babygrow by Boody has a two- way zip, built-in feet, and fold over mittens.  It is made from organic, bamboo and comes in neutral tones.  The Wondersuit by Bonds at John Lewis has a two- way zip, and fold over openable feet and mittens.  They can be neutral or gendered in colour.  The company ha an ethical statement.
