Vegan leather generally speaking is any material that is vegan (not from an animal) that resembles the look and feel of real leather. Vegan leather is currently made using a variety of natural and synthetic materials. We prefer to call our material vegan leather as some items labelled faux leather can still contain animal leather.
Our shoes are made with a combination of Microfibre leather, PU (Polyurethane), PU Imitation Microfibre Eco Leather, Microfibre Suede and PVC. During 2022 and moving into 2023 we are slowly changing all outer materials to Microfibre or Eco Leather (PU Imitation Microfibre) as it is more environmentally friendly, breathable, durable and hypoallergenic.
PU leather is Polyurethane coated onto a backing fabric and the one we use is considered Eco-leather.
Microfibre suede and leather is now considered the best alternative to real leather and it is strong, eco-friendly, breathable and hypo-allergenic plus it has a soft luxurious feel. All our shoes have a microfibre lining.
The rest of the shoe (the base) is a combination of rubber and wood. The heel of our boots are 100% wood and there is no plastic inside the heel.
