We have a wide range of vegan trainer styles which we add to every season, including vegan high-top trainers and vegan leather trainers, alongside trans-seasonal classics that go with everything and never go out of fashion, like our great range of white vegan trainers and black vegan trainers.
We work hard to find the most ethical, sustainable and vegan trainer and sneaker brands out there, who have built sustainability into the heart of their business, and use incredible, innovative eco-vegan materials made from plant crops, organic cotton, and recycled materials.
These are the most frequently asked questions about vegan trainers:
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 NAE, COG, Ration.L, Minuit sur Terre, and V.GAN
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.
