Black Nice Ankle Boot
Waste Not | Want Not
The Black Nice Ankle Boot from Love Sofie is versatile, sophisticated and sexy. We love them with wide-leg pants, a pencil skirt or jeans.
Crafted in gorgeous plant leather and 100% animal-free, the Nice has a lovely shape, with the rounded cuts framing the ankle characteristic of the brand's designs.
All Love Sofie styles are ethically made in Spain and Portugal with sustainable, breathable materials. The range is designed consciously, sourced responsibly and completely animal-free.
- Upper and lining: Eco-polyurethane, treated with corn and seed oil
- Sole: Thunit rubber
Two primary things make footwear and accessories products vegan: (1) they contain no leather or other skins, and (2) they are not made using any animal-based glue.
Various terms are used to describe the materials used for vegan shoes, bags, etc. These include vegan leather/suede, faux leather/suede, and micro-leather/microsuede. These materials are typically made from man-made microfibre.
Love Sofie uses an innovative material called plant leather, which is made by mixing polyurethane (PU) with corn, soy and other plant oils. This mixture is then laminated together in layers to create something that feels and acts like animal leather. Plant leather is breathable, strong and water repellant.
While historically non-leather alternatives have received a bad rap for their toxicity and poor quality, among other things, modern production techniques mean that today's materials are far less environmentally damaging and of much higher quality.
Although there are some concerns about microfibres entering the oceanic food chain via washing, this is not an issue with footwear and accessories, as these items are not washed.
All of Ecoture's carefully-selected vegan shoes and accessories are made from the highest quality faux leathers and faux suedes. Our partner brands focus not only on the vegan and cruelty-free aspects of their products, but also on their ethical and sustainability impacts.
