Vegan Swedish Hasbeen Sandals: A myth?

Is there a non-leather version of these?

I love, love, love Swedish Hasbeens! But I do not buy leather.

I am looking for some trendy wooden-heeled vegan sandals.

They do not necessarily have to be from an eco-friendly company - they just can't be made with leather or suede. I would like a low-medium heel - nothing too high. And preferrably in black, brown, tan, navy or red.

Some more examples of what I like:

BC Footwear
Ecote again
Korkease (although I am looking for wood more than cork)

I am not really looking for general "vegetarian shoe store" recommendations, having perused Alternative Outfitters, Mooshoes, and Vegetarian Shoes for something at all similar to the linked examples.

Anybody? Is this a lost cause?

Best answer: A slightly different style, but one that includes the "wooden sole" and "woven" aspects of the SHB model you like as well as being leather-free, is offered by Mohop, a handcrafted shoe company in the US.

You might like mohops. I don't know how to do links, but she has a website and an etsy shop. I have two pairs and love them.

Best answer: The Bianca seems close — almost. That store specializes in vegan shoes and chocolate, kind of an odd mix, so they seem to know their stuff enough that I'd send them an email and ask.

Response by poster: Both of these suggestions are great! Thank you!

Best answer: None of these are quite right, I know, but I found a few similar styles:


Or these?


crepe soled, instead of wood

with bows!

closest match!!, but in the UK, so shipping might be expensive
