British footwear giant Gola has launched a range of cruelty-free shoes.
The new collection, which has received certification by the Vegan Society to ‘give customers additional reassurance’, has undergone ‘rigorous’ Ve-Map chemical testing.
The process can identify any trace of animal DNA from chemicals within the shoe itself and from the manufacturing process, including ‘chemicals used in the fabrics, other materials such as the sole, dyes, adhesives, and finishing components’.
‘The rise of veganism’
“With the rise of veganism as a lifestyle choice and with many of you querying which of our styles are vegan-friendly, Gola is proud to announce the launch of its Gola Classics Vegan range,” the company’s website states.
“We have styles for women, men and your mini-me’s! Our range includes the ladies’ Coaster in various styles: Classic, Rainbow, Hi-Tops, and Mirror, while we also have our very popular Mark Cox style in a range of colors.
“Our men’s collection includes Comet and Comet Canvas, as well as Tennis Mark Cox and Varsity. If you’re on the lookout for some super convenient footwear that will easily go with your jeans or shorts, it’s only natural to look for a pair of Gola Classics Vegan that will best suit your style.”
The collection, priced between £35 – £50, comes in a variety of colors including dark green, deep red, Indian teal, vintage blue, and blossom.
