Even though Macbeth Shoes may be an unknown name to you, you’ve probably heard of a few of the people who wear and design the shoes. The company was founded by Tom Delonge of Blink 182/Angels & Airwaves, and since 2002 has garnered support from artists like Tegan and Sara, Anthony Green, and members of Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance, and AFI. In fact, AFI’s Hunter Burgan is Macbeth’s ‘Vegan Ambassador’, and runs a Vegan-oriented blog for the company.

But what exactly makes their shoes vegan? They don’t use animal products of any kind. This means using organic canvas and denim from vegetable fibers, synthetic water-based glues, synthetic leather and natural rubber. The unique design and materials used in making the shoes even landed Macbeth the award for “Best Vegan Skate Shoe” by Peta2 in 2007.

In addition to using sustainable materials, Macbeth works with charities such as Invisible Children and Shirts for a Cure, to help stay true to the theme behind the name, “in that riches gained through unethical methods are less than worthless.”
