Loom Footwear: Vegan, waterproof and breathable

Written by Fiona

As increasing numbers of people wake up to being more environmentally and ethically conscious, a brand called Loom Footwear has launched a vegan sneaker that is both waterproof and breathable. The trainer is aimed at people who want a good-looking shoe that is also practical for outdoors activities.

Loom Footwear has male and female designs and both are made with materials that absorb and release moisture from the air, so that your feet will never feel moist or sweaty again. The Loom sneakers feature cruelty-free materials, including merino wool. They are eco-friendly and PETA-approved vegan shoes.

Loom Footwear features:

Loomwear Merino Wool interior: Made of high quality merino wool, the breathable surface is naturally temperature-regulating, anti-odour, antibacterial, durable and comfortable.

H2-Go Layer: 100% waterproof and breathable knit layer to keep feet dry whatever the season.

Merino Wool Lined Cushioning: There is double the Merino Wool for double the power. The cushioning minimises foot pressure whether you’re hiking or jogging.

Excelcast Sole: This is designed by podiatrists to maximise energy return and absorb shock, protecting ankles, shins and knees from hard terrain and rough surfaces

Breathable: The material absorbs and releases moisture from the air to protect against rashes and bad foot odour.

Overall, the footwear is meant to look good for everyday wear and also allow wearers to enjoy activities, such as walking, without worrying about wet, sweaty or smelly feet.

The shoes are also lightweight, flexible and slip resistant, providing good grip on a range of terrain. The fact they are vegan is a bonus. See Loom Footwear.
