Creepers Go Vegan, Too

Even in the fashion industry, designers, models and manufacturers as well as consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of vegan shoes. This also applies to creepers, the thick-soled, eye-catching, and fashion-forward shoes first popularized by soldiers.

Of course, vegan creepers shoes cannot be consumed. The term “vegan” refers to the materials used in the manufacture of the shoes. Here are a few things to know about it so that you can decide whether it’s for you or not.

Made From Non-animal materials

Vegan shoes are made from materials made from sources other than animals, such as cows, crocodiles, alligators, and snakes, even kangaroos. These are usually preferred by vegans and vegetarians as part of their lifestyle of reducing their carbon footprints on the planet. Of course, even meat-lovers are also patronizing vegan shoes because of their more eco-friendly aspects.

Vegan creepers can be made from a wide range of vegan materials. Your concerns about limited choices are baseless considering that each pair of vegan creepers shoes are made from one or two of these materials:

  • Hemp is among the most eco-friendly crops because it improves soil quality, requires no herbicides, and grows quickly. It also has anti-microbial properties.
  • Jute has durable comfortable, and breathable properties that make them perfect for footwear. Its biodegradable quality also makes it a great vegan option.
  • Bamboo produces an extremely soft fabric with antibacterial properties. It’s also a great plant because of its sustainable growth patterns and soil protection quality.
  • Faux leather, also known as plastic leather (pleather), is a synthetic leather. It’s a popular material for creeper shoes because it’s easy to clean – just use a dry or damp cloth, whichever will remove the dirt.
  • Suedette, or faux suede, is made from synthetic suede cloth. It’s easy to maintain – just treat with a spray-on waterproof spray – and soft to the touch, too.

You can also find creeper shoes in stretch fake suede, satin and microfiber. Each type of material requires specific care so be sure to ask the retailer about it. You want to get as much mileage out of your creeper shoes as possible.

Made for City Life

The great thing about creeper shoes is their versatility in terms of mixing and matching them with clothes, bags and jewellery. You can be as edgy, as casual, and as punk with them, all while maintaining your own sense of style. You can play around with these shoes, such as using them with structured blazers or flirty dresses.

Indeed, creepers shoes are made for city life! You will find plenty of local and international celebrities, such as Rihanna, wearing them while up and about the city. You can wear them to the office, school, and malls, even to church, if you pair them with the right outfit.

And if you find yourself in a rural setting, creepers are just as suitable, too. You can traipse through mud in them, if necessary.
