Sudo Shoes, a new vegan store selling shoes, bags, and accessories, has opened in Cambridge, Mass. The vegetarian-owned business sells both women’s and men’s shoes, and most of the shoes sold are union-made and recycled. Later in the year, Sudo will offer vegan jackets and ties. The storefront is sustainably designed, including shelving made from recycled steel and sunflower seed hulls. Owner Scot Fitzsimmons is committed to ensuring that all the products are vegan. “We need to filter ‘vegan’ shoes to make sure the entire product is animal-free right down to the glues,” he said. “Most of the time you need to investigate and talk to three or four reps, which is virtually impossible for a consumer to do on their own.”
