EXCLUSIVE: Footwear Brand Seven Feet Apart Debuts Its First Vegan Sneaker Range


1 Minutes Read

UK Footwear brand, Seven Feet Apart (SFA), will soon debut its first vegan sneaker range: The Vegan 172.

Available from March 22, the cruelty-free footwear is available in colors off white or black, from sizes three to 12, retailing at £157.00.

Responding to demand

SFA’s co-founder and chief brand officer, Matthew Bagwell, told PBN: “We made this first sneaker for two reasons – customers increasingly asked for it – and I wanted to reduce our impact in the products we make. In fact, I want our products to have a positive impact.

“We have actively started researching and using better materials; materials that are very efficient (less waste), non-animal, recycled, and recyclable. We are also challenging conventions throughout the supply chains and lifecycle – like packaging and fulfillment.”

‘Highly resilient to abrasion’

The sneakers are made from an Italian Microfibre called onMicro, that has been described as ‘comfortable to wear’ with its ‘high breathability’, and is ‘highly resilient to abrasion’.

Whilst SFA currently stocks leather items, the company said: “If the demand for our vegan range far outstrips the sales of our leather products, we would consider only making vegan shoes.

“However, we will also continue to search for – or create – replacement materials that are sustainable. When there is a high performing, beautiful and kind material that can replace all our leathers, we will use it exclusively.”
