Vegan shoes are made without the use of animal byproducts or materials, such as leather, suede, wool, shearling, silk or fur.

Vegan shoes are made of a variety of synthetic fabrics. Most vegan leathers are made from polyurethane (PU), a type of plastic that is bonded to a cotton backing.

Vegan suede is often made from microfibre synthetic fabric. Instead of a leather sole, animal-free shoes use a part-recycled resin sole with insoles made of recycled cardboard, as is the industry standard.

Beyond Skin vegan shoes are made using the finest quality fully breathable faux leathers, 100% recycled Dinamica faux suede, luxurious woven Italian fabrics, 100% recycled Italian faux leather linings and cream lacquered resin soles.
