    Joshua, how do these shoes compare to others by Novacas? Are the materials different? Or just the design? I like them better than previous Novacas, but new Novacas look as good as these. I need to order new vegan shoes ASAP and am deciding between Brave Gentleman, Novacas, Noharm and Melissa (if I find a place to order them online in the US!)

    Are you planning on doing any holiday sales?

    I really love the pair I have and might pick up some boots the next time I’m in NY

  • John

    Is the sole of the Visionary made out of actual wood or what kind of material is it?

    • Joshua Katcher

      It’s a synthetic composite

  • Hans Kristoffer

    I wish someone would make some nice vegan shoes in sizes larger than size 13, although I get that that is probably one of the most niche markets in the world

    These are beautiful! Do you think you’ll ever make them in smaller sizes?

    • Joshua Katcher

      Thank you. The smallest we make is 39. What size were you hoping for?

      • Charles Theonia

        That’s awesome. Is there anywhere in New York where I could check them out?

  • Veganhobo

    Lol classy veganhobo, don’t worry if you keep on living vegan the universe will pay you tenfold, just hold on!

  • Veganhobo

    Wow I just might have to get off my welfare vegan ass get a job and save up for a pair of these sick puppies…
