Best Vegan Running ShoesRaquel Khoudari
When it comes to veganism, it’s not only about eating plant-based foods. Being vegan also means avoiding any type of animal cruelty, and never purchasing items made of animal-based materials. Natural fur is not the only type of material derived from animals. Even simple running shoes might not be vegan. The leather and other non-synthetic materials, glues, and dyes used in some running shoes come from animals too, and are sometimes even tested on the animals to check for toxicity. Isn’t that just too cruel? Fortunately, you can now run vegan and stay in shape!
