What is vegan footwear

What is the definition of vegan footwear?

Vegan footwear is a type of footwear that is made without any animal-derived materials, such as leather, wool, suede, or silk.

Instead, it is made from bio-based materials like corn, bamboo or apple or synthetic materials like rubber, canvas, microfiber, and recycled plastics.

For example, our  COCO COLLECTION is made with corn with 63% organic materials, SEAQUAL (recycled plastics extracted from the sea) and corn. 


The purpose of vegan footwear is to provide consumers with a cruelty-free and ethical option for footwear. Many people choose to wear vegan footwear for ethical, environmental, and health reasons.

Beflamboyant is a vegan footwear brand that prioritize sustainable and eco-friendly materials and production processes in their manufacturing.The vegan footwear is a popular choice among environmentally conscious consumers.


Are vegan shoes environmentally friendly?

Vegan shoes can be environmentally friendly, depending on how they are made and the materials used.

Some vegan shoe brands prioritize the use of sustainable and eco-friendly materials in their production, such as recycled plastics, organic cotton, hemp, corn and cork.

These materials are often more environmentally friendly than animal-derived materials, as they have a lower environmental impact and are often biodegradable or recyclable.


However, not all vegan shoes are environmentally friendly.

Some synthetic materials used in vegan shoes, such as polyurethane, are made from non-renewable resources and can have a negative impact on the environment if not produced sustainably.

Additionally, the manufacturing process of vegan shoes, like any shoe production, can require significant amounts of energy and resources.

Therefore, it's important to research the production practices and materials used by individual brands to determine whether their vegan shoes are environmentally friendly or not.


Transparency goes hand in hand with vegan footwear

Transparency is an important aspect of vegan footwear.

Vegan footwear companies should be transparent about the materials used in their products and their production processes, in order to assure customers that no animal-derived materials were used.

By being transparent, companies can build trust with their customers and promote a more ethical and sustainable approach to fashion production.

Therefore, transparency is a key factor in promoting veganism and sustainability in the fashion and footwear industries.

How do you know if a pair of vegan shoes is authentic?

To determine if a pair of shoes is truly vegan, you can look for certain characteristics and features:

  1. Materials: Vegan shoes are made entirely from synthetic or plant-based materials, so check the labels and materials list for any animal-derived materials such as leather, suede, wool, or silk.
  2. Labeling: Many vegan shoe brands will clearly label their shoes as vegan or cruelty-free, so look for these labels or certifications such as the PETA-approved Vegan or Vegan Society logo.
  3. Brand research: Research the brand to determine their ethical and sustainability practices and whether they are transparent about their materials and production methods.
  4. Construction and design: Some vegan shoes may be designed to resemble leather or other animal materials, so pay attention to the details and construction to ensure there are no animal-derived materials used.
  5. Retailer information: If you are unsure about a shoe's authenticity, ask the retailer or brand directly for more information.

It's important to note that some brands may use the term "vegan" or "cruelty-free" loosely, so it's important to do your own research to ensure the shoes meet your ethical and environmental standards.

Why is it important to know if a shoe is vegan or not?

For this reason, BEFLAMBOYANT is approved by PETA and certified with The Vegan Society. It is very important to us not only to say that our footwear is vegan, but also to demonstrate through external analysis that all of our footwear is vegan.
