Hi! How can we help you?
Please find the most frequently asked questions below.
What are the shoes made from?
First of all, we will never use any leather or other animal derived products. That’s why our shoes are made out of PU microfibers. PU (polyurethane) is way less harmful for the environment than animal leather or PVC. Our shoes are made out of vegan, PVC-free leathers. We use the highest quality, soft and breathable microfibers which are also water-resistant. The vegan suede we use for our Wingtip Derby is made out of microsuede. It's almost the same as a microfiber; microsuede is a man-made material that's soft & breathable.
Is vegan leather sustainable?
Faux leather can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, it’s a response to the animal cruelty within the traditional leather industry. But, most vegan leather accessories are made from polyurethanes (PU), which is derived from fossil fuels. However, traditional leather also has its problems. Not only does it contribute to animal cruelty, but the hides must also be tanned, which requires soaking in a chromium salt bath. Chromium salt is hazardous to both people and the planet.
How many shoes does the first collection consist of?
We focused on perfecting one single style – the Derby – which we know would best fit today’s gentleman. This style comes in two models in three different colors for you to choose from. Whether you’re having a job interview, a first date or even your own wedding; Gentleberg shoes are designed to wear on every occasion.
