Its a good time to be vegan in the world of fashion. From vegan leather designer bags made from corkto Juicy Couture partnering with vegan fashion label Apparis to make faux fur tracksuits, theres no shortage of amazing cruelty-free clothing and apparel finds.

But vegan suede? Not so easy to track down. Thats why we were so excited to hear that the shoe maestros Mercer Amsterdamhave unveiled a new slate of stylish sneakers made with vegan suede from Alcantara. And this animal-free suede isnt just any suede-like microfiberits the same fabric thats used in ultra-luxe cars such as various Porsche models, BMW "M" cars, and certain Lamborghini makes.

So what makes the material so great for sneaks? Its both more stain-resistant and also more durable than suede made from animal products. Its also cruelty-free, of course, and gives you pretty epic bragging rights to say your shoe finish shares something in common with a swanky Porsche interior. This collection marks the first time Alcantara is used for sneakers, and were hoping it becomes the norm for suede shoes one day soon. The sneakers retail for 250 or about $335 USD as of press time. Currently, theyre available in grey/white, black/white, and black/black color combinations for the shoes body/sole.

I think Alcantara and Mercer go very well together because we both combine high-end design and sustainability, Dutch designer and Mercer Amsterdam founder Pim Mercer told Plant Based News of the new sneaker line. We dont know about you, but the photos alone make us desperate for the days when we can gather in groups once again with our fellow sneakerheads, rocking these new kicks of course.

Check out the new collection herejust look for those with the word Alcantara in the sneaker title. Hasta la vista, suede.
