No, thanks they're plastic, these will make your feet sweat.
"synthetic uppers". Soles yes, uppers no, I prefer leather. Worth paying more for leather. You only have two feet, it is worth looking after them!
As a kid, plastic or vinyl shoes and trainers did indeed make your feet sweat. But we're in a different world now. Synthetic leathers look like the real thing and are as good if not better in terms of durability, cleaning etc.
Fake suede is commonplace in sofas these days. Hard-wearing, practical, easy to clean.
Of course there will always be snobbery regarding real and "fake", but it depends whether that's reason enough for you to not buy something.

I agree, who wears synths - they should be leather if they're going to last.

What and leather won't, fine for working in.

But, it's 'premium synthetic'. You'll get premium sweat. Yummy.

Worth a try at £15
A lot of Mercedes come with synthetic leather seats these days... Misleadingly titled Artico Leather...
Ew.
Be mindful of this website though, some reviews are not great & reports of shoes not bring real.. the quote ‘if the price is too good to be true’ comes to mind.. 39770941-KcOAg.jpg
I bought their other deal that was on here about a week ago for tan leather red tape shoes and I was pretty impressed. I ordered the dark leather ones first and loved them so bought the tan colour too (similar to this colour).

They were good quality if they are anything to go by and delivery was like 3/4 days.

Edit - just to add i bought them via ebay! not direct from their website so i had buyer protection!

How many feet do you have. Sexual innuendos aside.


Why you gotta shoot me down like that
Those one star feefo reviews are bad.
The responses from the company are quite aggressive and completely unapologetic. The spelling mistakes don't fill me with confidence either.

I'd avoid this company if I were you.
So these are vegan?
Check the reviews on trust pilot
I bought a pair for a punt and used the sale20 code. I then looked at the site and decided to try and buy another pair yeah but the sale20 code no longer worked. So I'm guessing that you can only use it for one order so make sure you order everything at once.

Fake leather, will make your feet sweat, as for sofas and chairs it's absolutly the worst material.

Yes, but I find the insoles a little bit chewy.
I've had everything from leather, to canvas to lightweight mesh, and my feet still grumble.

Leather has a horrible environmental footprint, because of the tanning process. And walking around with something dead on my feet or seeing it on others, is quite the turn off.

You would think by now there would be an ideal leather replacement. One assumes that some synthetics are 'better' than others. Would love a breathable fully waterproof something.
Can the people that purchased the Red Tape shoes posted on here previously from this retailer comment on the Red tape shoes on quality, breathability and waterproofing - it would really help purchasers as this offer is still available.
Thanks
Clicking on that website is like going back to 1995

Are you saying that plastic shoes are free from dead animal products?

I've always been led to believe that crude oil is a substance made from very old plant and animal base?

No, plastic has its downsides too - and removing the squalid politics of oil - I personally care less about single celled plankton that lived naturally over 100 million years ago. Compared with the inherent cruelty in farming sentient beings, and the knock on effects of the chemical process of tanning. But of course it's nigh on impossible to live pain free, but we can try.

It's complicated, I remember friends of the earth years back said synthetic clothes were 'greener' than cottons and animal products. But they didn't take into account plastic shedding and end of life at the time.

I did have a pair of pure hemp shoes once, but they didn't do so well in the wet. They would tend towards the smell of a rabbit hutch. Perhaps a wood/cork/rubber sole would have been a better fit.

It's also with noting that if you do have synthetic boots, and, they have moisture on them.. That will at some point lead to mould, especially if you live in an environment prone to damp or condensation.
It's for this reason I don't touch anything non leather any more, plus it will last you way way longer.

I bought that deal too. The shoes were nice but did not fit me too well, so I returned them. The return process was a bit weird though. I had to pay 3.99 through paypal link they provided to get the label. I had used Paypal to pay for purchase as well, so I can claim it back, but I won't have a payment receipt from Royal Mail so it makes the process convoluted. I have included screen shots etc to file the claim.

I'm sure there will be plus and minus points with every choice we make.

I'd wager that many supposedly "ethical" choices have unforseen consequences.

I think the last time I wore plastic shoes was as a kid, they were TUF Weathermen, if memory serves me correctly. They always cracked and failed just before the warranty expired... LOL
Look, I'll ask again........has anyone ever bought these boots and are they comfortable.
Asking for a vegan friend....who is hungry....and bootless.
