Do you know the benefits of wearing synthetic leather shoes?

leather shoes

Leather, made from cow hide, is a very commonly used material for shoes and other clothing 

materials. Animal activists have expressed concern over the use of leather and its effect on 

the cow population so there have been many advances in the use of synthetic leather. 

Synthetic leather is intended to feel and look similar to actual leather but without the 

animal rights concerns. There are benefits to wearing synthetic leather shoes compared to 

actual leather.

1. Environmentally Safer

Synthetic leather is frequently used in vegan shoes and other brands that cater to those 

concerned with the welfare of cows and other animals. Synthetic leather is frequently made 

of a combination of textiles and polyurethane to give the synthetic material an authentic 

leather feel. 

2. Cost-Effective

Traditional leather tends to be much more expensive than its synthetic counterpart. The 

reason for this is because leather requires much more preparation and is therefore more 

expensive to prepare. The cows needed to make leather require care, land and food and then 

the cow skin has to be treated before a shoe can even be made of leather. All of this 

contributes to the eventual buying price. Synthetic leather doesn't require as much 

preparation or labour to produce and therefore synthetic leather shoes are usually 

significantly cheaper.

3. Durability

Synthetic leather shoes are designed to retain their form and are usually very durable. They 

are also more water-resistant than real leather, which can stain and suffer damage when 

exposed to rain or snow over time. Synthetic leather is designed to hold up against weather 

conditions and the wear and tear of walking and running over an extended period of time.
