Since its creation in 2017, label Minuit Sur Terre has been driven by ethics. The brand is committed to offering shoes, accessories and clothing free from animal-derived ingredients and with the lowest possible environmental impact – without compromising on style or quality.

Every collection, the brand has a new model of their best-selling embroidered Virevolte sneakers. For each pair sold, 5€ is donated to a partner association. An example is the Virevolte Bunnies, which is designed in collaboration with PETA France. Minuit Sur Terre also makes occasional donations to associations: a part of the profits from their second-hand platform l'Aurore is given to organisations committed to the defence of animals.

About the Founder

Marie Viard Klein had been vegan for a few years and couldn't find shoes that suited her in terms of style, ethics and quality. At the time, there were few brands offering shoes and accessories that were both ethical and vegan. This inspired Marie to launch her own brand and create shoes that save lives.

“The company was born from frustration about the lack of shoes that reconcile style and ethics. Season after season, we have the same ambition: to offer modern, desirable collections made with respect for animals, humans and the planet.”

Materials

Minuit Sur Terre sources their materials in Italy, prioritising eco-friendly plant-based or recycled textiles. The brand is big on leathers made from grapes, apples or cereals, which are vegan and have a lower carbon footprint. Minuit Sur Terre also uses recycled materials crafted from plastic bottles recovered from the Mediterranean Sea, or fabric scraps from the textile industry.

People

Minuit Sur Terre works with small factories, located in the Porto region of Portugal. Good conditions for workers are essential to the brand, which is why they visit the factories several times every year. They are also working with a small French factory located in the Nantes area, which they also visit frequently.

Production

The brand aims to reduce its impact on the environment by prioritising local production, choosing their materials with care, and committing to transport by road only.

Packaging

All packaging used by the brand is made from recycled materials: their shoe boxes, tissue paper, and shoe-care card. The label is also aiming to reduce their packaging as much as possible and to avoid unnecessary elements in packaging in order to minimise waste.

Animals

Minuit Sur Terre is a PETA-Approved Vegan brand and ensures all components in its designs are animal-free. The brand is also committed to educating its consumers on the benefits of vegan living.

That’s a hard one as ‘best’ is personal! Immaculate Vegan has one of the largest collections of vegan trainers from a wide variety of brands from across the globe. Take a look! Our best sellers come from BeFlamboyant, Humans are Vain, Yatay, Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather, Ration.L and Komrads.

Vegan trainers (and sneakers) are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. Vegan shoes are made of a variety of fabrics, traditionally synthetic but increasingly using innovative materials derived from nature with all the properties of leather, such as apple leather, cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). Many synthetic trainers are now made using recycled plastics from ocean trash.

That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Canvas trainers are not waterproof, vegan or otherwise. But most of our trainers are water-resistant and some are also waterproof, as well durable and 100% vegan.

The quick answer: yes! But you can make them last longer by taking care of the shoes. Just as you would care for animal-leather trainers, you should look after your vegan leather trainers. With proper care, vegan trainers can last anywhere from two to five years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.

Yes! As far as we are concerned they are.

The British call them trainers, because they can be used for sports or training.

The Americans call them sneakers, presumably because, being soft-soled, they're suitable for sneaking around in!

But to confuse things further, they are also called tennis shoes in the US.

Vegan sandals are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. There' a wide variety of materials that can be used to make vegan sandals, including polyurethane (also known as PU), apple leather, pineapple leather (Pinatex), cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). In addition, some vegan sandals are also made from recycled materials, such as recycled polyester or other recycled fibres.

Many vegan sandals now are made using high quality and durable materials, and many of the new vegan leathers are of very high quality. But you can make your vegan sandals last longer by taking care of them well. With proper care, vegan sandals can last for many years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.

Vegan materials tend to have a much lower carbon footprint and be much be kinder to the environment than animal leather, which is one of the most environmentally damaging materials used in fashion. Whilst there are vegan materials such as PVC which are toxic and harmful, none of the vegan sandals or products at Immaculate Vegan contain PVC. We also choose to partner with brands who are creating the most sustainable vegan sandals possible, using the most sustainable vegan materials.

There's really no difference here between vegan and non vegan sandals – it all depends on the quality and fit of the brand and the styles you choose. We partner with premium footwear brands at Immaculate Vegan to bring you vegan shoes that are high quality, stylish and comfortable.

Whilst not all brands are equal, at Immaculate Vegan we select footwear brands making high quality, stylish and cruelty free vegan sandals and shoes.

That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Canvas and fabric vegan sandals are not waterproof, vegan or otherwise. But some of our vegan sandals are water-resistant and some are also waterproof, as well as durable and 100% vegan.
