Shoe brand T.U.K. Footwear will be launching seven new shoe styles as part of an all-vegan collection for its fall 2017 line later this month.
The California-based punk rock company's animal-free creepers, which utilize a new, softer vegan material called 'TUKskin', have been created following customers' feedback.
The shoes are made out of an improved material, that is softer than the brand's previous vegan lines.
T.U.K founder Ian White said: "We have heard the voice of our customers for many years, and done our best to provide vegan alternatives to traditional shoemaking materials.
"With the development and adoption of TUKskin, we are very happy to now be able to achieve that goal, and our plan for 2018 is to vastly increase that offering."
T.U.K.'s new collection offers cruelty-free versions of its flagship 'creeper' shoes, as well as boots, sneakers, and Mary-Janes.
