These 8 Vegan Running Shoes Are All The #Motivation You Need To Slay Your Workouts

by

A brisk morning run in autumn can be so invigorating! But that nip in the air also makes it harder to get out of bed. If you’re like me, it helps to have cute workout gear you actually want to slip into first thing in the morning. So, we’re sharing some of our favorite vegan running shoes. These are so vibrant and fun they may just be worth leaving the comfort of your warm, cozy blankets.

Note: when looking for vegan running shoes, we want non-leather materials, plus glues and dyes that aren’t derived from animals. To make things easier, online shops like REI and Zappos feature ‘vegan’ as a search filter.

According to PETA, shoes from Brooks, Mizuno, Newton, and On are all-vegan brands.

  1. Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 (in Black/Heliotrope/Fiery Coral)

These shoes stabilize overpronation. We love them because they remind us of kaleidescopes and put us in a playful mood!

  1. Brooks PureFlow 6 (in Peacock/Byzantium/Corsican Blue)

Asics are mostly vegan (but watch out for models with an “L” for leather at the end of their product codes)

  1. Asics DynaFlyte 2 (in Black/Pink/Persian Jewel)
