I hate having to find new shoes. Finding vegan shoes that aren't made of plastic or are horribly ugly can be incredibly difficult to find. For once I stumbled upon these Toms that are vegan, fairly attractive, comfortable, and washable.
One of the biggest problems with Toms is the smell they start to get, and the shoes that aren't vegan are difficult to wash. I have tossed mine into the washing machine at least 5 times now, and they have held up great.
