The Dr. Martens Store
This well-known shoe designer, with two San Francisco locations, finally answered the prayers of vegans by coming out with a completely vegan collection. If you’ve always been a fan of the look of leather but hated how it’s produced, you’re in luck with the Dr. Martens line. The boots and flats imitate that classic leather look and feel but are completely devoid of animal-derived materials.
This unique clothing brand only has an underground showroom on Capp Street in the Mission that requires an appointment to check out. Ragabond is made up of new, renewed, and upcycled apparel and goods. The brand is incredibly dedicated to being eco-friendly and keeping their production on a local level. If you happen to also be dedicated to looking fabulous while staying free of animal materials, give Ragabond a ring.
