i just come back from india. when i was in india, lots & lots of shoes shops there but i kept asking i don't want leather ones. my guides kept asking why?
& i told 'em, cos no killing. & finally i bought 2 pairs of shoes. they looked like leather. i hope they were honest. just b4 i leave the shop , he put a leather bracelet on my wrist as a gift & i accepted it. after a while i gave that bracelet to a girl on the street
i don't think its that difficult to find non leather shoes in hk. just keep asking. good luck
