Bourgeois Boheme was founded in 2005 by ex-Podiatrist and long-term vegan Alicia. With a love for shoes, and unable to find high quality and high style animal-friendly footwear, Alicia developed her own brand. She moved to London and merged her foot care expertise with her vegan values to create luxury animal-free footwear. Not interested in creating just another shoe brand, she has remained true to her founding principles to create perfect vegan shoes without ever compromising on quality, finish or design. All BB shoes are Vegan Society trademarked and PETA approved.
Today, Bourgeois Boheme is one of the most established vegan footwear brands out there, still small and independent – as they like it – still making beautiful and versatile shoes completely free from animal-derived materials. The timeless, brand-exclusive styles they produce are all artisan-made under ethical conditions in Portugal from the finest eco-friendly Italian vegan leathers. They believe that a good vegan shoe should be about more than just excluding animal materials – a design that stands the test of time is essential – and therefore they work tirelessly to champion slow fashion through updated British shoe classics that challenge the perception of leather-free footwear. The brand’s increasing fan base includes vegan celebs such as Natalie Portman, Bryan Adams and Torrey DeVitto.
