Advantages Of Vegan Shoes, The Nature's Saviors!
The vegan footwear industry stood at roughly $25 Billion in 2020? What's more, it is expected to grow at a rate of 7.2% between 2020 and 2030. But why are vegan shoes getting so much traction? Well, the answer is, they are awesome! They are good for the environment, perform better than traditional leather, and are typically cheaper!
And most importantly, no animals get killed!
Why would one want leather then?
So, let's deep dive into the details of what a vegan shoe is and its various advantages.
What Is A Vegan Shoe?
Well, the easy part is, it doesn't use any animal-sourced products. But then what does it use?
So, vegan shoes are made up of vegan leather.
Vegan leather comprises of a variety of materials—the most common being PU or Polyurethane and PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride. But you might think PU and PVC are not environment-friendly materials.
So, the catch is vegan shoe brands use recycled plastic bottles. Thus, reducing the carbon footprint over the planet.
And the best part, it feels and looks just like genuine leather!
Now that we know the basics, let us see why they are so desirable.
What Are The Advantages Of Vegan Shoes?
#1: Animal Pro Shoes
Leather shoes are made up of cow, sheep, or pigskin. But vegan leather does not have such demands. It is animal-friendly and cruelty-free!
And there is more! Often, even if your shoe is non-leather, it might still be using animal-based glues and fabrics.
Vegan footwear, on the other hand, contains no animal-sourced products whatsoever. And it goes further by not even testing any materials on animals.
In short, we save so many animal lives by opting for vegan leather!
Plus, with so many vegan designer shoes available, you are spoilt for options!
#2: Go Eco-Friendly
Going vegan with your fashion not only helps animals but benefits the environment as a whole!
Vegan shoe brands aim at lowering the carbon footprint. But how? So, they usually use naturally available materials or recycle the existing waste. Thus making sure that they reduce carbon footprint in some manner!
For example, at SolChic, all our shoes are recycled shoes made from waste plastic water bottles. For example, the very stylish Raffia Neutral mule is made by weaving threads obtained by recycling these waste plastic bottles.
#3: They Are Trend-Setters
Going vegan is becoming such a huge trend. So many vegan trendy women's shoes are available these days.
Moreover, wearing vegan footwear nowadays turns eyes, not just because of the looks, but because of the idea and awareness behind it!
#4: They Don't Need You To Break The Bank!
Vegan leather is usually less costly than genuine leather.
And since they cost less, you can have more for less! Meaning you can have more variety of shoes in your closet for the same price! Hurray!
#5: They Last Longer
Genuine leather is prone to creasing, wrinkling, and warping issues. But owing to the raw materials used in making the faux leather shoe, they do not suffer from these issues.
They are more durable, more resistant to other weather conditions, and most importantly, dirt and water-resistant. While on the other hand, leather is a high-maintenance princess!
So, doesn't going vegan make much more sense now? Vegan leather is cheaper, and it doesn't even ask for maintenance!
And if you are still doubtful about how women’s vegan shoes are so awesome, here is the last reason!
