Your New Summer Shoe In Vegan Leather
With a broad range of colours and treatment, these cruelty-free shoe styles are sunny day-ready.
Vegan leather has been around in some form since the 1800s, and today it is most often made of polyurethane polymer. As manufacturing techniques have evolved, the design possibilities of this versatile material have exploded, and designers can explore textures and effects beyond what is achievable with real leather.
Whether you’re drawn to vegan leather as an ethical or aesthetic choice, here are some standout styles for the new season.
