Hi, lovely ladies! If you had been searching for vegan leather shoes, or more specifically, vegan flats, then your search ends NOW.
We’re delighted to offer a wide variety of vegan shoes made from sustainable materials.
However, wouldn’t you like to know WHY we chose vegan leather as our primary ingredient for our women’s footwear online?
Well, keep reading this Go With SOUL blog to uncover the interesting answer!
1. First off: WHAT is vegan leather?
Short answer: it’s a far better alternative to other materials from which women’s footwear is usually made.
The lengthy, more scientific answer? Vegan leather is made of polyurethane (PU). It’s a polymer that can be made to order or it can also be crafted from innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic!
2. WHY vegan leather?
Our counter is- “WHY NOT?” It’s a soul-soothing material that is good for the planet, good for the animals, and good for your soles.
It's also a versatile material that has been putting animal skins to shame for a while now!
3. What else is made from vegan leather?
Other than Go With SOUL vegan flats, you ask? Well, the women’s footwear industry may have had a rude awakening, considering the side effects of global warming are so hazardous to mankind’s future.
However, other segments of the fashion world have also considered going vegan and sustainable.
Hence, every renowned industry professional ranging from Stella McCartney’s designer clothes to Tesla’s vegan leather seating has tapped into sustainability!
4. Authentic leather vs. vegan leather
DID YOU KNOW authentic leather requires extensive treatment before being manufactured? The chemicals released during this “treatment” harm the environment and reduce the leather’s biodegradability.
Vegan leather, on the other hand, is crafted from PU and other textiles to create a leather-like feel and look that contributes positively to the environment.
5. Durability of PU leather
One aspect of our vegan flats that we are immensely proud of is that they are astoundingly durable!
Yep, vegan leather tends to be water-resistant and stain-resistant.
VVegan leather shoes, in general, suffer minimal wear and tear and can also endure frequent changes in the weather.
SIDE NOTE: vegan leather has many names - synthetic leather, vegan faux leather, etc. However, its purpose as well as Go With SOUL’s purpose is to continue creating sustainable footwear that reduces the damage that the fashion footwear industry has already caused to our planet.
Oh, and after reading this blog, we hope that you don’t Google ‘vegan leather meaning’ anymore! 😊
