    4 pair because I love these shoes so much!

    I have owned 4 pairs of Oakes because we wear them out! Honestly the only reason I have ever replaced them is because the vibrant soles wear out. The tops still look as good as the day I bought them. I love that a percentage of sales goes to Fiona Oakes sanctuary!

    Walk don’t run!

    I bought these to do muddy Parkruns in when it’s too muddy for regular running shoes. On the good side they’re perfectly waterproof and have fantastic grip in the mud, but on the down side they’re terrible on tarmac! Most courses seem to be a mix of surfaces, and these shoes are stiff and have very little cushion in the soles, so they’re not great for the hard surface parts of a run. It’s like running in school shoes on tarmac. I now use them for muddy walks instead, which they’re perfect for.

    Like it, but in a bigger size

    I really like the style. The toe area is very restrictive on me, so I would recommend going at least one size up from your normal running shoe size.

    This is my favorite shoe ever made.

    The title is pretty much how I feel. I used to work for a vegan magazine and was sent a pair of these bad boys to review and I was immediately sold on the brand. The price point originally turned me off a bit considering I could find something from a better known fitness brand for less. But after using these bad boys as my daily drivers and running shoe for over a year I can 100% attest to the quality of construction, comfort and durability. Since that first pair I’ve purchased 2 more pairs. 3 total. And I came here to order another because my latest pair is starting finally break down after a year and a half. But I was appalled by the lack of reviews on such an awesome shoe so I had to leave one. I recommend these shoes to literally everyone I know.

    Also. The tread wears down far before the upper part of the shoe. Which I’ve never experienced in a workout shoe before. Usually the toe rubber starts pealing or the details on the side start peeling off. Not with these.
    The only issue I’ve had is that I’ve had the lace cable snap on a couple of pairs before the shoe was fully ready to give up. But I believe for a small fee you can order a replacement.

    Great for walking too

    These arrived (in Australia) from Wills Vegan Store so quickly (less than 2 weeks) and have a great bounce in their step. I don't run, but walk long distances and these are very comfortable and bouncy. The shoe lace replacement is interesting - holds tight nicely. Very happy with the purchase and great to support an all vegan biz.
