At Bhava, creating a premium footwear experience begins with sustainability.
Our shoes are small batch crafted in Spain where by generations of artisans. The design is in the details, from the choice of upper, and breathable eco-suede lining (all imported from Italy), to the European hardware.
*Our Italian vegan leathers do not contain aromatic amines, PCP, formaldehyde, PVC, phthalates, azo-dyes, or chrome.
Here are some tips for taking care of your premium vegan items.
- Store them properly when not wearing them. Keep them in their original box or a cloth shoe bag, stuffed with tissue paper to help them hold their shape. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
- Clean them regularly. Use a soft cloth to remove dirt after each wear. Wipe them down with a damp cloth. Use a vegan leather cleaner or mild soap and water to clean the exterior if needed. Avoid submerging them in water.
- Condition the material. Use a vegan leather conditioner every few months to keep the material supple. Rub it in with a soft cloth.
- Protect them from moisture. Spray with a vegan waterproofing spray before wearing in rain or snow. It helps repel water. Reapply as needed.
- Avoid direct heat. Don't place them near heat vents or in direct sunlight for long periods of time. The heat can dry out and crack vegan leather.
- Get minor repairs. Take them to a cobbler right away if you notice any tears or damage. It's easier to fix small issues before they worsen.
- Consider adding rubber soles. Having a cobbler add non-slip rubber soles can help extend the life of the boots and improve traction.
With proper care and storage, your vegan boots can last for years. Be gentle, clean and condition them regularly, and protect them from moisture and heat damage. Investing in some vegan care supplies helps keep them in top condition.
I got these sandals in beige and they are a lovely nude color. True to size. Very chic and comfortable like all my Bhava shoes. Thank you!
These are comfortable, secure, flat sandals that don’t bring down the elegance of dresses and skirts as many flat sandals do.
I only buy non-leather shoes and my Bhava shoes hold up the best. I’ve never had to take them in for repairs, unlike my others.
Super comfortable and so chic.
Why is it so hard to find a very chic nude vegan sandal of high quality? I love these! At first I tried my usual size 7 but found my slightly larger width feet didn't work well in them. The strap across the toe was a bit tight and my foot fell off the side a bit when walking as the previous reviewer mentioned. I went up a size to 8 and they work so much better for me. For me the sizing up fixed the width and to problem as well as sliding off too far to the side when stepping. They go with everything.
I am SO happy with these! I got them in both the black and white. I have only worn the white so far, and they are absolutely amazing!! They are super duper comfortable and so cute. They look like "real" leather and my friend agrees. The only thing is that the toe box area feels a *tad* narrow and the big toe felt like it was going off the side at first. I tried going up a size, but they were too big, so I stuck with what I had. I've worn them about 5 times and I'm more used to it, so it's not as bad. I wouldn't return them or not buy them for that reason because they are worth it and so incredible!! Thank you, Bhava for being such a leader in the vegan shoe space and making not only fashionable vegan shoes but comfortable ones, too! Thank you!! <3
