“Overpriced nonchalant staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Their vegan leather is average and overcharge! Agree with the reviewer above. So many other establishments to visit. Avoid.

“"Cruelty-free shop" Cruel to customer and wallet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Overpriced products and seriously stiff and inflexible service. Being a cruelty free company one would think these guys would run their business ethically and geared towards providing good customer service.

To send shoes they charge $22 (cost of vegan shoes you can now buy at Big W, Target and Kmart - not marked as vegan, instead non-leather) and included in this charge is "handling" which I am told is for going down to the post office to send them and constitutes more than half of the entire charge.

I missed my first shipment and of course, to get the shoes back I had to repay shipping and their handling charge period.

I regret paying 300 for non-leather shoes. I suggest you look elsewhere. We can support such organisations that are cruel and cold to people.
