What distinguishes vegan microfiber shoes? Why is it worth investing in them and will they be more durable than leather ones?
Microfiber is produced without the use of any semi-finished products of animal origin. It is a high-quality synthetic material that can imitate the look and feel of natural leather.
What makes it worth investing in shoes or accessories made of it?
Wearing comfort and your health
Microfiber is a type of fabric made of very fine fibers. These fibers are finer than silk and softer than cotton, making them an ideal material for creating footwear. Therefore, shoes made of microfiber are often softer and more flexible than leather shoes, which can make them more comfortable to wear.
Microfiber is light, very durable, breathes well despite being completely waterproof. It is also antibacterial and anti-allergic. It prevents excessive sweating of the feet and allows the free flow of air around the foot.
In addition, wearing microfiber shoes certified by OEKO-TEX, we are safe and do not expose ourselves to contact with substances harmful to health. We also reduce our negative impact on the environment. OEKO-TEX rigorously tests the level of substances that may be harmful above specific concentrations.
Ethical, sustainable and cruelty-free
Microfiber shoes are becoming more and more popular among those who are looking for sustainable and ethical alternatives to traditional leather shoes. They are not only animal welfare friendly but also more environmentally friendly than leather shoes as leather production requires significant amounts of water, energy and chemicals.
Accessories and footwear made of this modern fabric are a more sustainable alternative as they require less resources to create and do not contribute to deforestation or other environmental problems. Microfiber can also be made using corn fibers and recycled PET bottles, but we wrote more about it in the article about BIOECO material.
Microfiber footwear is also very durable and hard-wearing
Bought once, they will last with us for several seasons. We wear Fairm shoes ourselves and test their extraordinary durability. This is the 6th season of the brand's own collections, and we still wear shoes from the first premiere. Microfiber is made of fibers that are very densely woven to create a smooth and uniform surface. Thanks to this, it is much less susceptible to flaking than, for example, polyester or nylon. In addition, this unique fabric makes products more resistant than leather to certain types of damage, such as water stains or scratches. Microfiber is also recyclable, which is something to keep in mind when our shoes get used enough!
Microfiber can be used to create models of shoes in different styles and for different seasons
We use this material to make winter boots, sneakers and sandals. Our belts and wallets are also made of microfiber. It is also available in many colors and patterns. It may resemble smooth natural leather or suede and the selected texture does not affect its properties at all. Therefore, in our collections you can find models that match your personal style.
Vegan shoes and accessories made of microfiber are a great option for those who want to make ethical and sustainable choices. They are durable, stylish and eco-friendly, making them a great choice for anyone who wants to look good, feel comfortable, and do good at the same time.
