Sustainable fashion is growing leaps and bounds, with more and more consumers choosing to wear organic fibres and support fair-trade brands. Vegan shoes are among the most popular products for environmentally conscious fashionistas who want to reduce their carbon footprint both literally and figuratively.
Sportswear company PUMA has just released the Re-Suede, a vegan sneaker styled on one of the PUMA brand’s most popular shoes to date, the Suede (which was first produced in 1968). These new vegan shoes are designed to protect the environment with the same level of efficiency that Scruffs safety rigger boots use to protect your feet. The vegan Re-Suede takes all the classic style of the original PUMA shoes and combines it with today’s cutting-edge sustainable technologies. These designer vegan sneakers are made from synthetic suede that uses 100% recycled polyester fibres, effectively reducing the energy consumption involved in the production of the shoes by a dramatic 80%.

Vegan shoes are the cruelty-free footwear choice, and the growing trend in vegan and vegetarian friendly shoes means you can now buy anything from ladies safety footwear to stilettos that are entirely free of animal products and by-products.
