Legendary streetwear brand, Vans, has officially launched its first vegan sneaker line. The line is called Eco Theory and it features four of the brands most popular styles made of ethically sourced, vegan and environmentally friendly materials.
The lace-up Authentics, iconic Slip-Ons, SK8-Hi high tops, and classic Style 36 kicks made the most classic shoes available to the most discerning vegans. Materials include organic cotton, cork, natural rubber, hemp, and water-based inks and glues.
This is a trend we can expect to see more of, with industry frontrunners like Allbirds, leading the charge in the shoewear/apparel world.
We are completely behind this movement and hope to see many more (if not all) shoe-wear brands making similar changes.
