A New Vegan Brand
Friendship shoes was first conceptualised last September and will launch one year later on September 10th 2016. It came about because as committed vegans we struggled to find well designed shoes in good vegan fabrics; it was relatively easy to find cheap PU synthetic leather but these aren’t great environmentally and we worried about how truly vegan they were. We came to see this glaring gap in the market, we wanted great design, environmentally sound fabrics and low carbon footprint manufacturing.
In the design studio working out those final details for the launch range.
In development for this winter release, a 6 hole brogue boot with black crepe welted sole with our “Silver Lining.” Look out for them once the web page launches.
We worked with an Italian company to create our unique fabric, it was important for us to get the finish we wanted and we’re very happy with it, we have taken five classic designs and given them a twist. Our shoes are made in the UK and are Goodyear welted so can be repaired, we’ve moved as far away from low priced throw away consumerism as we possibly could but we’re determined to keep them affordable as our entire objective is to make cruelty free shoes accessible to all, we want to feel that we’re saving lives and helping the planet.
