Post title really said it all... this shoe contains no animal products, by-products or derivatives. Saucony released this last year w/ more colors recently. Canvas and hemp used to create this Saucony Lo-Pro. Not swayed by homegrownvegan or whatnot myself -just like the texture here rather than usual nylon. They don't have them at the Cambridge (MA) outlet yet (just checked) but maybe by this fall. Anyway, MSRP $55.
