Personal Shopper: Granny-chic Vegan Sandals for Katy

Katy writes: Oh, Outblush. How did I ever shop before you? (Mostly unsuccessfully, if I recall...) Here's my current quest: a pair of chunky, platform-y sandals like these great Dansko ones but non-leather.
My specifics:
- I wear a size 7.5 shoe
- I'm willing to pay up to $150-ish for a well-made pair
- no deadline - the Boston weather is taking its sweet time getting warm, so it'll be a while before I can parade my tootsies out in the open.
- as for color, I don't have much of a preference, as long as it's nothing too outlandish like neon pink or highlighter yellow
- preferably nothing higher than a 2" heel, but I can handle up to 3" if they're platform
- they need to be vegan and have that funky-grandma vibe like Dansko/Hasbeens/Dr. Scholls

Your shopping kung fu is strong, and if you manage to find sandals for me, I will proclaim your superiority to all.
Thanks so much for the help!

Good on you Outblush... I'd file this under "Doubtblush"

Thanks, Robin! Awesome job.

FYI to my fellow vegans: pair #6 apparently have leather lining even though the rest is faux. Weird, huh?

And Nancy B - hate all you want, that just leaves more cute shoes for me.

I'm glad you like. Sorry about #6 - I missed that minor (and bizarre) detail. Here's a bonus one to make up for it. Kind of a crazy pattern, but fits with the granny look.
