What are Ahinsa shoes made of?


In a world full of disposables, we make shoes that last for years.  

Ethical. Eco-friendly. Comfortable.

We select our shoe materials with care

 Ethically produced

We use only vegan materials manufactured responsibly. 

 Minimal impact on the planet

All of our materials are European. We look for natural sources, recycled materials, and other materials that will last. 

 Your comfort

Our shoes adapt to your feet, keep them dry, and allow them to breathe. 

Here’s what we chose for your feet: 

CF+: Better than leather

Cruelty-free material that looks no different from leather at first glance. At second, it does: it lasts a lot longer and molds to your feet from the first time you wear it. 

In shoes made from CF+, your feet can freely breathe and stay dry. 

  • Waterproof 
  • Resists scratches and scuffs
  • 100% vegan
  • Wicks away sweat from your feet

CF+ nubuck and suede: Style with a clear conscience

We love soft suede and nubuck, but normally, these materials are made from animal skin and require complex maintenance. That’s why we began searching for our own options — and we found them. They’re breathable, durable, and ethically produced. 

  • Soft to the touch 
  • 100% vegan
  • Extra breathable
  • Wick away sweat from your feet

Hemp and linen: Nature’s tough guys

You’ll fall in love with hemp and linen shoes, especially in summer. They protect your feet from the sun, keep them cool, and let them breathe. Even better, they last – these are the world’s toughest natural fibers. There have even been discoveries of linen fabrics that date back thousands of years. 

Our shoes might not last thousands of years, but they will take millions of steps with you. We’ve tested them ourselves. 

  • A green source: minimal water needed for production 
  • Your feet can breathe in them
  • Extremely durable material

Ethical fur: Warmth without cruelty

You can even find Ahinsa shoes walking in Finnish snow. And we’ve heard straight from Finland that our vegan fur keeps feet toasty warm even in the harshest temperatures. 

And thanks to a special membrane, it also wicks away sweat from your feet. You’ll experience a truly cozy winter when you wear shoes lined with this fur. 

  • 100% vegan
  • Wicks away sweat from your feet
  • Warms your feet even in freezing Finnish temperatures (Tested)

AirNet: A breath of fresh air for your feet

Inhale. Exhale. Breathing is an essential function of human life — and your feet need to breathe, too. That’s why we chose this extra breathable Airnet mesh for our shoes. Your feet can breathe, sweat gets wicked away, and you’ll feel more comfortable than you’ve ever been in your life.  

  • Adapts to your feet
  • Allows air to reach your feet 
  • Wicks away sweat 
  • Extra durable
