As I have said in a previous post, while the vegan community has done a super brilliant job in educating people about cruelty-free, vegan, ethical eating, I feel the community has not done nearly enough in educating people on vegan ethical clothing/footwear/accessories. I even hear vegans say they still wear some footwear made of animal products because they can't find any good quality shoes/boots that are cruelty-free, especially offline in stores.
So F.A.A.R.M. will be doing a lot of focusing on vegan clothing/footwear and other accessories, like belts, to help vegans (and non-vegans) easily find good cruelty-free product wear. As a matter of fact, most running shoes are naturally vegan, as synthetic materials are much more breathable and readily available, but always ask to make sure it's vegan if it's not mentioned on the product.
Brooks is one such company that carries many vegan footwear, but other companies, such as Saucony, New Balance and Asics all offer high-performance vegan shoes. I got a pair of Brooks running shoes, like the above, for Christmas. They feel terrific on my feet! And Asics has made it easy to shop for vegan running shoes; all running shoes with "N" in the product code/style number are vegan.
