Willa Phoenix offers luxurious shoes and accessories free from animal-derived materials. From sky-high stilettos to after-dark clutch bags, this is the go-to brand for ethical glamour. 

Founder

After Abby Barroll Brown went vegetarian, she aimed to overhaul her entire lifestyle, from wardrobe to cosmetics, to make it more planet-friendly. She came across a stumbling block: shoes. To elevate the image of vegan and sustainable fashion as truly stylish and offer alternatives to women like herself, she created Willa Phoenix.

“I created Willa Phoenix to show people high-end style and social awareness can absolutely walk hand in hand.”

Materials

Willa Phoenix is a PVC-free brand. The soles of their shoes are made from a 50% breathable rubber and the brand is also free from heavy metals and toxic substances.

People

The brand works with a factory in Italy that is fully compliant with laws when it comes to working conditions, wages, and safety.

Production

The manufacturer behind Willa Phoenix' designs is a small collective of artisans, technicians and craftspeople in Italy who for three generations have embraced the art of shoemaking. The brand has chosen to keep production in Italy despite the higher cost, to be able to ensure ethical production.

Packaging

Willa Phoenix products come in a 100% raw cotton dust bag, and are shipped in boxes made from recycled carton.

Animals

The brand is 100% vegan, with assurance from their suppliers.

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.

Vegan boots are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede or. Vegan boots are made of a variety of fabrics, traditionally synthetic but increasingly using innovative and high performing materials derived from nature, with many of the properties of leather (but none of the cruelty, and with a much lower environmental impact). These include apple leather, cactus leather, grape leather, Pinatex (pineapple leather) and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). Sometimes recycled plastics are also used.

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 boots, you should look after your vegan leather boots. With proper care, vegan boots 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, we find that vegan boots are as comfortable as animal-leather versions. As with all shoes, the higher the quality you can buy, the more comfortable they will be.

That depends on the style and the fabric in question. Many vegan leathers, such as cactus leather, other bio-based leathers, and polyurethane (PU) leathers are naturally water resistant, in a way that animal leather isn’t. However it’s advisable not to let them get soaked, and to wipe off any surface water as soon as you’re able to. Allow them to dry naturally.
