Blaze Apple Leather Vegan Ankle Boots | Black
These on-trend black vegan ankle boots are one of our perennial bestsellers, and come from super cool French vegan brand Good Guys. The vegan leather is already soft and supple, which means these boots don't require “breaking in”.
They're made from a revolutionary new Apple Skin leather. Apple Skin is made from the skin and core waste recovered from the food industry, and is both soft and supple as well as hard-wearing. The material contains a minimum of 50% apple fibre and is created in Bolzano, Italy by Frumat, winners of the 2018 Technology and Innovation Award at the Green Carpet Fashion Awards in Milan.
- Vegan Apple Skin leather upper
- Anti-bacterial and breathable microfibre lining
- Rubber sole
Sizing: These boots are unisex, and the sizing covers both women's and men's sizes. The fit is accurate / true to size.
Care: We recommend to only use products that are meant for microfibre and synthetic Leather. Clean the upper part of your shoes, use a soft brush (or Toothbrush) and brush the shoes gently after the rain or once a month to get the dust and dirt out of them, that will keep them "looking good".Wash separately the removable sole with cold water.
Packaging: Boxes are made of recycled paper. With each pair of shoes, you will find a high-quality Good Guys cotton bag made in Italy that you can use for carrying your personal items while traveling or wrap and protect your shoes in your suitcase.
About the brand
Good Guys were the first 100% vegan footwear company in France, and have since developed their collections year on year, collecting many fans, including the actor Emma Watson and the singer Miley Cyrus.
Good Guys are sweatshop-free, with all their shoes made in Portugal in a fair-trade environment. All the materials they use for their shoes are eco-friendly and sustainable, and include a zero CO2 emissions vegan leather made in Italy using polymers derived from cereals and vegetable seeds, and apple leather. They are heading towards being 100% recyclable in 2021.
Apple Leather: Often a waste product from the fruit industry, apple leather is made from peels, cores, pulp, and other leftovers from juicing or apple purees. The high-end leather-like textile is created by dehydrating apple waste and coating it onto a canvas. Often, the resulting material will still include polyurethane, but in smaller quantities compared to traditionally made PU (polyurethane) vegan leathers.
Prominent supplier Frumat offers an apple leather containing 50% apple waste and 50% polyurethane. This results in a material which requires fewer fossil fuels than both animal leather and petroleum-derived faux leathers. At the end of its lifespan, this material can also sometimes be composted.
Sustainably minded brands love apple leather because of its durability and breathability, but also because of how versatile it is – the material can have a grainy texture similar to cow skin, but also be smooth and soft like calf leather. It can be embossed and laser-printed.
