Vancouver shoppers will soon have the chance to try a vegan shoe store on for size.
When Nice Shoes opens on March 1, it will be the first “cruelty-free” footwear shop in the city.
The 600-square-foot store, which will be located at 3568 Fraser Street (at East 20th Avenue), plans to sell ethical products that are friendly to animals, the environment, and workers.
In addition to casual and dress footwear, Nice Shoes will carry belts, handbags, and other fashion accessories—all free of leather and other animal products.
Vancouver isn’t the only B.C. city set to get a vegan shoe store in the next few months.
In April, Vshoen plans to open in downtown Victoria.
