Where vegan leather was once a poor substitute for the real thing, innovators around the world are reinventing the material in ways that not only save animal's lives but offer creative ways to avoid waste, too. The latest to join the trend is Portugal-based shoe brand NAE. 

NAE is built on the premise of creating stylish, comfortable shoes without harming animals, filling a void the founders Alex and Paula Pérez saw in the market. And while all their shoes are made with vegan leather, the latest debut for the winter collection is a boot made from recycled nylon sourced from airbags with soles made from old tires.
