What one thing about NAE Vegan Shoes would most surprise us?

Well, the founders, me and my wife Paula started our business in our garage. This is something that a lot of people don’t know but, back in 2008 we had this idea of creating a shoe brand but we had no idea that shoes need a lot of space and we only had the garage. Very quickly, we started to rent a warehouse, then a second...

What would you wish for if you could be granted one wish?

Easy to say Peace and love for anyone...Very difficult, but something easier: all the people to be vegan! Then, the people, animals and planet will be very, very well!
