V12's range of lightweight, vegan and vegetarian-friendly work boots
For a product to be considered vegan-friendly it can't contain animal material - fur, hide, hair or shell. In addition, one area people tend to overlook is the adhesive that holds the shoe together, this also can't contain any animal ingredients, such as gelatine, which is created by boiling connective tissue and bones.
V12's vegan-friendly work boots have been constructed from a breathable leather-free PU material and are fixed with a glue that doesn't contain any animal ingredients.
How to identify vegan work boots
If in store, check the tongue label, this will outline the materials used in the upper, inner lining and outer sole. If the label mentions 'other materials' as opposed to 'leather' followed by a symbol, this would usually indicate they are made from a synthetic material, but we would always double check with the company if you are unsure.
V12's vegan-friendly work boots are all marked with 'other material' on the label followed by a diamond shaped icon.
Caring for your vegan work boots
Leather and suede are high maintenance materials, especially in comparison to vegan alternatives. With that said, vegan footwear tends to be a lot tougher especially in wet, humid and muddy conditions. Despite this, they still need some looking after. To keep your vegan work boots looking new, we would recommend following the below few tips:
- Keep them in a well ventilated, damp free room and away from direct sunlight
- To keep clean, give them a good wipe with a damp cloth
- To remove dirt, use a soft bristled brush
