Shop sustainable footwear brands in New Zealand

Discover our considered collection of men’s and women's, representing products that utilise sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing processes to minimise the impact on our planet. Shop vegan and earth-friendly footwear from leading brands including TEVA, Birkenstock, New Balance, Timberland, Dr. Martens and more, offering on-trend footwear styles that won’t cost the earth.

Our vegan-friendly Birkenstock sandals and slip-on shoes featuring synthetic and natural materials that are gentle on the skin and free from animal products. The Birkibuc upper is a durable synthetic material with a nubuck leather-like finish and a soft fleece backing for ultimate comfort. Similarly, our collection of vegan-friendly TEVA sandals are created using synthetic and plant-based materials, while also utilising recycled content in their footwear, helping to reduce plastic waste from entering landfill.

Speaking of reducing landfill, New Balance have put a new spin on their classic sneaker styles, now built to meet Green Leaf Standard with an upper made of at least 50% recycled content, as well as additional recycled content throughout.

With a company logo in the form of a tree, it’s no wonder Timberland is backing the planet. Their eco-conscious footwear collection is constructed using materials like Better Leather from a silver-rated tannery, as well as ReBOTL™ fabric containing at least 50% recycled plastic, and GreenStride™ comfort soles made of 75% renewable sugar cane and responsibly sourced rubber. The on-trend silhouettes are built with comfort in mind, and the earth at the forefront.

If it’s a leather-look shoe or boot you’re after, check out Dr. Martens vegan shoes and boots, featuring all the classic Docs detailing and comfort features, yet made using a quality, vegan-friendly synthetic material in place of traditional leather.

No matter if you’re shopping women’s vegan-friendly sandals, faux leather footwear, or sneakers made from recycled materials, we’ve got your conscience covered with our Considered Collection at SOLECT. Buy online today!
