My son has become a vegan, so leather golf shoes are out of the question. Does anyone know of any shoes that are 100% Man made material? Thanks.

First, it is not a joke. Vegans don't use any animal products. And secondly, that avatar just showed up, and I'm not computer literate enough to change it. I was wondering about the Addidas shoes that Sergio wears, and some of the Nikes that look like running shoes. My son used to play, but he hasn't played for a couple of years. I know this is kind of an off the wall thread, but nothing would make me happier than to have his company on the golf course again. Thanks.
FootJoy "GreenJoys" are completely man made synthetic leather. I have a set myself as I am also vegan. :) They are good quality too!
as a vegan and and a golfer myself I understand the struggles. As far as vegans are concerend it's not just using things made from animal skin you would be shocked at how many materials have an animal derivitive. We have to look into it all, it goes as far as the types of materials used to give certain foods their texture (i.e. we dont eat starburst as they use a product similar to gelatin to give it the gummy texture that uses animal in one form or another in the process).
Veganisim is a PERSONAL lifestyle choice so please dont tell this FATHER to feed his SON chicken and fries as he's not telling you to take YOUR son to a different church or put them in a different school because he doesn't agree with your personal views and values.
I'm on the quest of finding as much vegan friendly golf stuff myself, I only use cloth carry bags which is a big part and my gloves i'm still running through my sciflexes from footjoy that were already purchased before I made the switch from vegitarian to vegan.
I will mark this thread and as I find items I will be sure to share them here!
Hope things are going well on your quest
