Brand: Good Guys Don't Wear Leather
Good Guys Don't Wear Leather is a small company founded in 2011 by Marion Hanania, a Parisian shoe designer and long-time vegan. Good Guys makes vegan shoes that are 100% cruelty-free and don't give up on style. In this way, they can offer fashionistas and animal lovers a sustainable choice.
Fair trade: The shoes are fairly made in small family businesses in Portugal, Italy and Spain. Here the shoes are (mainly) made by hand. Good Guys visits these locations on average twice a year and can confirm that the conditions here are pleasant, and the employees receive a fair wage.
Eco-friendly: By experimenting with innovative, natural materials such as Apple leather and corn and recycled material, the brand wants to work towards a 100% naturally degradable shoe. Now Good Guys still works a lot with the synthetic material microfiber. The materials are Oeko-Tex certified, which indicates that they contain no harmful substances.
Vegan: All Good Guys Don't Wear Leather products have been 100% vegan since day 1. They are PETA-approved.
Locally produced: The items are all made within Europe, the materials also come from within Europe.
Good cause: The label supports various charities. They support PETA and Woodstock Sanctuary, are committed to gender equality and Le Secours Populaire Francais.
