What's in Store in 2018

It's hard to believe it's 2018. Do I say that every year? I think so. 

2017 in Review

This past year has been different from all others. Why, you ask? Well, because 2017 was the year that I launched SOULiers Studio. With a whole lot of research on vegan shoes AND gumption in tow, I decided to embark on this journey to see if I could fill what I believe to be an underserved niche - those looking for ethical, vegan footwear that is also stylish, classic, and of beautiful quality. And well, the response has been really wonderful! At Montreal Veg Fest and at the Toronto Winter Vegan Market, I met so many like-minded people who thanked and praised me for launching this business. This kind of feedback has propelled me forward in times of self-doubt and when I've felt like the hard work wasn't having the results I'd hoped. While SOULiers Studio is largely an online business, I fully intend on continuing to take part in vegan markets in 2018 as a way to connect with customers in person and of course, for a chance for people to see for themselves how beautiful the shoes really are!

What's in Store for 2018

In 2018, as mentioned, we'll be heading to a select number of vegan festivals in Ontario and Quebec - stay tuned for details! We're also going to be introducing a few new brands into the fold. I'd like to maintain an element of surprise so I won't reveal ALL here but will give you a sneak peek so that you can share in some of the excitement! 

Veja is an amazing, stylish sneaker brand based in France. We're going to be offering a selection of their vegan line of sneakers soon and I'm pretty sure we're the only ones carrying them in Canada. Whoa.

HfS Collective - Their versatile and super-trendy belt-bags (turned clutch, turned cross-body purse) make me swoon every time I look at them. We are going to be carrying some new styles (read: maybe wallets and certainly more belt bags in different finsihes and prints). Stay tuned. 

Sofiebly - I'm finding it hard to contain my excitement after finding this AMAZING Swedish brand. They shoes are beautiful, feminine, vegan, and made in Italy and Spain. I cannot wait to show you some of their Spring-Summer 2018 collection. 

I'm going to leave it at that for now but, as always, if you have any ideas for cool vegan brands that you've come across that you'd like for us to carry or styles that you'd like to see, drop me a line, either in the comments section here or via email at hello@souliersstudio.com

For 2018, I wish for a more peaceful, cruelty-free world. We express our beliefs and values through what we consume and buy. So let's all make a conscious effort to make the most ethical choices possible.
