Vegan/faux leather nursing shoes?

    So I currently have these bad boys from Clarks and they have served me well through my three years of nurse training but I think they are starting to wear out cause my feet have started aching after shifts which they never did before.
    Does anyone know where I can get similar but with faux leather?
    I don't like wearing them but I couldn't find a vegan alternative at the time :/ I don't mind about price so long as they are comfy and hard wearing.
    I would highly recommend these to people who don't mind wearing leather though

    My husband buys their shoes and they last him several years. I'm pretty sure that they do mail order, or have a day out in Brighton!

    I'm vegan too and I had those exact same shoes. I agree that they're great for any healthcare job that has you on your feet - so practical and comfy. Unfortunately I've never found any like them in faux leather, but this may be because my feet are unnaturally huge for a woman and several shops don't even carry my size. I bought my Clarks pair second-hand (but barely used) from eBay, which mitigates the ethical problem a bit - taking castoffs from someone else isn't the same as going into the shop and buying your own pair. Maybe try that if you can't find anything? Assuming you don't have my problem with yeti feet, this shop has a couple of things that look as though they might be OK:
