Since Christy made the fair point that vegan shoes (well, any specialty item, really) can be pricey, this week is devoted to accidentally vegan shoes that come cheap like Crystal Palace (but won’t make you nearly as sick). This pair has every bit as much flash as the last, but they’re far more budget-friendly

Sure, they’re also less classic and more trendoid, but I do quite like the combination of black and robin’s-egg blue, and the patent heel is a nice, flashy touch that doesn’t overwhelm. Plus, at $24, these shoes are equally suited to champagne and Asti, and I think a lot of us can appreciate that.
