Modern shoe materials


The shoe market has long been replenished with artificial leather materials, some of which are not inferior in quality to genuine leather. We are talking about a new high-tech material — eco-leather. It is very important not to confuse it with leatherette and other cheap analogues, because it is because of them that people have developed a bias towards these types of materials. The creators of eco-leather tried to make it as similar in properties to the skin as possible, and somewhere they surpassed it. In SOHO stores you can get acquainted with high-quality eco-leather shoes: Bugatti, Pepe Jeans London, United Colors of Benetton, Sergio Tacchini, GAS.

To understand all the advantages of eco-leather, you need to know what it is. Eco-leather is a material that consists of two layers. The first layer, which is the base, is made of woven fabric. A polyurethane film is applied on top. It is she who outwardly is very similar to genuine leather, but, unlike it, is more resistant to stretching and tearing.

Many people wonder what the concept of «eco» means in this case. The “eco” part says that it was created artificially and no substances harmful to health and the environment were used during the production of the material. In addition, eco-leather is 75% natural cotton or pressed natural leather shavings.
Eco-leather appeared not so long ago, so people have questions about its quality.

We offer to understand and look at all its advantages:

  • Environmental friendliness. Eco-leather is an artificial material of good quality. It does not cause any harm to the human body and allows the skin to breathe.
  • Price. When you visit a store, the first thing that catches your eye is the price of the goods. Similar boots made of genuine and eco-leather vary significantly in price. Prices for shoes made of artificial material are much lower. This is due to the fact that manufacturers use cheaper, but no less high-quality materials.
  • Elasticity. Genuine leather tends to stretch over time, so after some time after purchase, be prepared for the fact that brand new boots may increase in size. This will not happen with eco-leather, it will keep its original shape much longer.
  • Safety. This item is important for those people who are prone to allergies to various materials and substances, as well as people with hypersensitivity. Eco-leather is made of hypoallergenic materials, which are absolutely safe for humans.
  • Breathable material. Eco-leather is made of several layers, one of which is a thin layer of polyurethane with micropores, which allows air to circulate.
  • Strength. The fabric layer of eco-leather is covered with a layer of polyurethane, which is very mobile and durable. Due to this, it is reliable and not subject to scratches and scuffs.
  • Colors. Genuine leather shoe manufacturers face the challenge of dyeing their products in different colors. This cannot be said about eco-leather, since it is made from materials that lend themselves well to dyeing. In our SOHO stores you will find a large number of shoes made of eco-leather in a variety of colors.


When buying eco-leather shoes, choose trusted brands. Many manufacturers save on materials, which greatly reduces the quality and wear resistance of shoes. The SOHO store will introduce you to brands that produce high-quality eco-leather shoes. These shoes will last a long time and give you great pleasure.
