Unstitched Utilities IRL

Summer 2014 was a busy season for Unstitched Utilities. We were partnering with independent fashion designers, interviewing with vegan bloggers, and working on giveaways for fans all across the USA. You may have seen some of our contests, but we wanted to give one last shout out to Mommy's Block Party and The Vegan Truth for holding the competitions that allowed our vegan fans to receive so many cool products! You're the best.

We also wanted to share some photos from our fashion shoots with Vegan blogger VeganKicks and eco-friendly fashion designer PoorPitifulPearl. It was great getting to work with such fantastic companies who focus on vegan and eco-friendly products. If you know of any other eco-friendly, vegan, or upcycled designers who would want to partner with us, give us a shout out! We love learning about independent designers making strides for a better, more sustainable earth.

The Gusto

 Our newest women's line came out this past year, and it's about time we gave you some behind-the-scenes details about the newest vegan shoe on the market. Our canvas line has two main styles and over five feature colors to choose from in ladies sizes. The Gusto and Maui are both vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly, made using water-based glue to keep with our high-standards of animal-free production. The sleek, rounded canvas material is flexible and allows for support and comfort while wearing them. The clean stitching along the top secures the canvas. A stretchy, elastic tongue allows for comfort and flexibility while walking. The Gusto comes in Red, Purple, Grey, Green, and Navy.

Those bohemian styled clothes catching your eye? Check out our partner in fashion, PoorPitifulPearl, on her Etsy site.

Halloween Themed Lineup

Halloween season is here! The Halloween stores are popping up all over our neighborhood in central NJ, and we're shopping around for the perfect costumes. To keep up with the Halloween spirit, we've created a special Halloween-themed lineup of men and women's Tvek sneakers and boots. From the classic black slip on to our fast lane sneakers, Unstitched has the perfect shoe for this Halloween season. Greys, greens, oranges, and blacks are perfect for any costume, keeping you comfortable while trick-or-treating and stylish at costume parties. All pairs are available on our Website or on our Etsy.





Just a little reminder that all shipping within the USA is FREE. No shipping costs, no handling costs - you only pay for the product. Keeping our fees low so you can afford sustainable vegan fashion is a priority. Ethical style shouldn't cost a fortune!

Fall Fashion Giveaway

Unstitched Utilities' new women's canvas line is going viral. Ondria, from Mommy's Block Party, recently reviewed our Grey Maui shoe and couldn't wait to share it with her fans. Here's what she had to say:

"When I found UU, I knew that I had truly stumbled across something special...I really love the washed canvas look - it makes the shoes look like a favorite pair fo comfy shoes that you've had forever, even though they're brand spanking new to me. The velcro closure makes for a quick and easy on/off, which is awesome! The shoes are not only stylish, they are incredibly comfortable!"

Ondria loved her pair so much that she asked to do a giveaway for all of her readers and offer a FREE PAIR of Unstitched shoes. Her contest started on September 8 and the winner will be picked on the  21st. The giveaway is only open to US residents, 18 and older and valued at $50.

Shoe Profile

Unstitched Utilities was originally known for our Tyvek material sneakers. But this past season we launched a new line of women's flats called Maui and Gusto. Unlike our Tyvek sneakers, these shoes are made using all canvas and rubber materials. Still vegan-approved, these styles were popular for summer because of their lightweight and breathable canvas sides. With fall fast approaching, we're still shipping these babies out at lightening speed. Colors range from pastel green to a vibrant red and back to a subtle grey. All of our shoes can be purchased here on our website, or on our Etsy page.

Below is the Maui style. With rubber soles, they have great comfort when standing and walking most of the day. The canvas forms around your shoe and the velcro tops are adjustable for sizing. The side, angled stitching on this shoe is unique from other canvas shoe styles.


Below is our Gusto style. With a similar style as our Maui, the Gusto has a simpler and more organic feel. With a rounded toe, these shoes leave plenty of wiggle room with or without socks. Easy to slip on, and easy to stay on, the Gusto is a great around-town shoe for the woman who loves comfort.


Fall Fashion for Guys

 Well, it's time to face facts. Summer officially ends in 3 weeks and it's time we start vamping up our wardrobe for Fall. Even though Autumn is just the in between months of unbearably hot and intolerable cold, it's one of our favorites here at Unstitched. We're secret sweater-weather fans! No better way to get excited about the change in seasons than to spruce up your shoe collection. Below we have some fall favorites for guys that are featured in our store and on our Etsy page. Colder weather normally brings darker clothing, which lets you make a style statement with bright colors on your feet! Check out other styles and variations on these online at www.unstitchedutilities.com

Etsy Finds


In case you hadn’t heard, Unstitched recently joined the Etsy community of designers and creators. Our shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/UnstitchedUtilities) features all of our newest colors for Men’s Tyvek sneakers and Women’s Tyvek sneaks and Canvas slip ons. We felt it only proper to join Etsy – the world of unique, one of a kind products – since Unstitched is unlike most other shoe brands on the market. Hand designed and produced using only vegan approved materials, we’re excited to connect with all of the fellow vegan designers on Etsy.


We’re so proud to be a new member of the Etsy community that we couldn’t help but shop around a bit. We were surprised and thrilled to find so many shop owners making products that were animal free, recyclable, and eco-friendly! We’ve put together a little map of the products we loved best.
