PU Leather Footwear
Vegan leather has been quietly revolutionizing footwear for quite a while. First invented to mimic the look and feel of genuine leather, it can now provide many benefits that natural textiles can’t. It is increasingly popular in every industry that was once dominated by animal leather. However, its benefits for footwear are especially standout.
Made with significantly fewer chemical treatments and steps in production, PU has a lighter footprint on the environment and does not contribute to animal cruelty. Its low cost of production also means that PU footwear can be bought at a fraction of the price of animal leather shoes.
This doesn’t mean that you aren’t getting quality, though. Faux leather products have come a long way since their inception. Quality 100% polyurethane fabric can reproduce leather imperceptibly, and even provide some benefits that aren’t possible with natural textiles.
Fashion and Dress Shoes
Designers love PU fabric because of the many options it opens up for creativity and style. There is virtually no texture, pattern, or color PU leather can’t take on. Soft to the touch and convincingly leather-like, it’s also extremely easy to work with. It can be sewn into any style without tearing or stretching.
Work and Sport Footwear
One of the main reasons people love PU leather is because it is so lightweight. Traditional leather shoes can be quite thick and heavy, and while this can provide good protection, it just doesn’t work in certain scenarios. Many people work jobs that keep them on their feet all day, and heavy shoes can cause significant pain. Anyone who trains or plays sports also looks for as lightweight a shoe as possible.
In either of these scenarios, PU leather is an obvious choice for increased agility and decreased risk of pain and exhaustion.
Made for Everyday Wear
Whether it’s a fashion shoe, sandal, or pair of sneakers, if it’s made with Nexsora PU leather it’s made to last. Our top quality materials are designed to be worn day in and day out - comfortably and in style. They maintain their color and texture over time, and are truly comfortable to wear.
Most importantly, they resist water, which genuine leather is quite susceptible to. True waterproofing is generally not an option with natural fibers, but PU and other synthetics can come into contact with water time and again without stretching, roughening, or losing their shape.
More breathable than most other types of faux leather, polyurethane is good not only for premium-looking shoe uppers but also for comfortable linings. Best of all, when it does get dirty (as all shoes do), you can easily clean it with water without doing any damage to the material.
Faux Leather Fabric Uses
What Is Faux Leather? Faux leather, also called imitation leather or “pleather,” is any type of man-made fabric intended to look and feel like real leather.

Is PU Leather Vegan?
The term “vegan leather” is an obvious contradiction, and yet it’s one you hear a lot. What exactly does it mean, and how do you know it when you see it? PU leather is one of the more confusing types of faux leather to decode, since it can be quite convincing. It also isn’t always […]
