To clean either the vegan "leather" or "suede" uppers, gently wipe with a damp cloth, being careful not to rub too much. We do not advise the use of any cleaning products, such as soap, polishing, or treatments, which may cause damage to the uppers.
Based on the “cradle to consumer” Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted by SCS Global Services on our behalf, the Gaby in Taupe Suede-Effect has the following impacts on the environment, and we have, or are working to offset these impacts by 110%:

    • Global Warming Potential (GWP): 19.9 kg CO2 eq / pair, which is the same as driving a typical passenger vehicle for 50 miles. We have more than offset this impact, by 110%,
      by investing in the Green Trees Reforestation project, working to plant trees in one million acres of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, with over 6 million trees planted to date.
    • Fresh Water Consumption (FW): 1.06 m3 / pair, which is the same as running a typical dishwasher 35 times. We have more than offset this impact, by 110%, by investing in Water Restoration Certificates through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
    • Primary Energy Demand (PED): 330 MJ / pair, which is the same as operating a typical refrigerator for 12 days.
    • For the impacts on Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), Acidification Potential (AP), Eutrophication Potential (EP), Smog / Photochemical Oxidant Creation Potential (POCP) and Fossil Fuel Depletion (FFD), please find more detailed information in our complete LCA, available here.
Furthermore, among other materials, various forms of plastic were used to make our shoes, weighing 286 grams or 10.1 oz in total. Although (a) we have already offset or will be more than offsetting our environmental impacts by 110%, and (b) some of our plastics originate from recycled sources, we acknowledge that plastic is not good for the planet. Thus, we are working with
Plastic Bank
, to offset the plastic used in the making of this pair of shoes by 110%. To do so, we invested in Social Plastic® Collection Credits equal to 11.1 oz of plastic prevented from entering the ocean and recycled. For more information on how this offset is achieved, please visit Plastic Bank’s website.

The brand


Veneto is an Italian region renowned for its luxury footwear. So naturally, AERA went there to seek family-owned manufactures to create its beautiful (and sustainable) shoe collections. But, in a twist on tradition, every ballet flat, boot, and platform heel is made entirely out of vegan leather. Old world, meet new world.
