Two primary things make shoes 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. These include vegan leather/suede, faux leather/suede, and micro-leather/micro-suede These materials are typically made from man-made microfibre.

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. Polyurethane (PU) is commonly used, rather than the more toxic PVC, and many microfibres are produced using at least some portion of recycled materials. Furthermore, the newest forms use a water-based method to apply the PU to the fabric, rather than the highly toxic solvents that were traditionally used.

Microfibre fabric is lightweight, durable, and somewhat water repellant, so it makes a good substitute for leather. Microfibre is also made into Ultrasuede, which is cheaper and easier to clean and sew than natural suede leather.

Although there are some environmental 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 are made from the highest-quality faux leathers and faux suedes. Our partner brands are focused not only on the vegan and cruelty-free aspects of their products, but also on their ethical and sustainability impacts.

More information on the materials, ethics and sustainability of the footwear industry can be found in our blog post, Is there something wrong with your shoes?

Will's Vegan Store uses high quality vegan leathers and suedes to make its footwear, so you will find your purchase requires little attention to keep it looking as good as new. It does not spoil or stain when it gets wet. In fact, Will's shoes perform really well in wet and muddy conditions and they're water resistant. This means you can wear them for extended periods of time in light rain, walk through shallow puddles or wet grass and have dry feet. We do not recommend wearing in deep puddles, running water or extended periods of heavy rain.

Will's footwear is easy to clean. Here are some general cleaning instructions:

Vegan leather uppers

Wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. Polish can be used to bring out a shine and return colour. Any synthetic product should work just fine, apply as described in the instructions. It is recommended you test an inconspicuous area first.

Vegan suede uppers

Wait until dry then brush with a suede brush or something similar. For more extreme cases you can wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. You should not expect water marks as the material does not mark or stain like conventional suede when it gets wet.

Please do not apply waterproof or other protective treatments, they are not necessary and can mark and damage the materials. 

This product is Carbon Neutral, Cruelty-Free, Ethically Made, Sustainable, Up-cycled / Recycled, and Vegan.

Kickin in Cowboys

These boots are such gorgeous material and durability. First day I wore them I was out all day, and there was a specific period of me being on my feet for over 6 hours straight... I couldn't believe how comfortable these boots were. Honestly blown away. These are without a doubt the best item in my ethical wardrobe. The little clack of the heel when you're walking adds just a tad of extra confidence in each step too. My favourite pair of boots ever !!! <3
