We use quality, innovative materials for our shoes and use natural materials wherever possible. SORBAS only uses materials from Europe: Our materials are from Germany, France, Italy, Serbia, Portugal, Switzerland and Turkey. Next to leather, we use innovative, vegan, materials. They are predominantly natural and have characteristics comparable to leather. We use them to make light, soft and flexible shoes that feel natural and incredibly comfortable.

natural, vegan, resistant

Almost all breathable high-tech textiles are synthetical. Ours are natural. Water- and windproof and breathable organic cotton is derived from rare, superfine long staple fibers – a natural, waterproof organic cotton fabric. It has the advantage of being natural and breathable. On top of that, it is wind- and water-resistant. The SORBAS ’63 and ’66 therefore have the characteristics of leather shoes, yet they are completely vegan. Perhaps the best alternative to leather.

182 gram lightweight

On average, our shoes are 182 gram light and come with a flexible, abrasion-resistant outsole –SORBAS uses light and natural high-tech materials in our ’63 and ’66 series to make innovative, vegan shoes. Walking in our vegan shoes feels extremely natural. SORBAS ’63 are low-cut sneakers, SORBAS ’66 are boots.

comfort all year round

The advantage of waterproof cotton is that you can wear it all year long. The SORBAS ’60-series are offered in two variations: One is lined with cotton, the other with warm felt. The model with cotton lining is ideal for the time from Spring to Fall, and even in Winter a good choice when you combine them with warm socks. The model with felt-lining is the perfect shoe for the cold season, water-resistant and warm.

made from trees

SORBAS new cork collection offers our newest natural alternative to leather. Our soft cork material consists of plant-based cork and textile carriers. We use it to make soft cork shoes in our 70’s series combining typical cork structure with the functional characteristics of leather: breathable, water-resistant and flexible.

natural and vegan

We want to make the best vegan shoes and we want them to be as natural as possible. That is why we use materials that are plant-based and entail as little synthetics as possible. From an ethical viewpoint, SORBAS cork shoes are preferable to leather shoes and they are made of natural materials – therefore they offer the first leather-like, natural and plant-based alternative to leather and faux leather.

unique texture on every shoe

Cork has a natural structure that makes every shoe unique. The models are designed in Berlin. They are not only one of a kind, they are always unique. Elegant, but not too elegant.

airy. summer. shoes.

Canvas is a robust, natural cotton fabric. We process it in a way that it remains breathable and is perfectly suitable for spring, summer and fall. Our cotton comes from Turkey and is used by our shoemakers in Serbia to make incredibly comfortable shoes. You can find our canvas shoes in our SORBAS 50’s-series.

Innovative faux-leather made of plants

Predominantly, we use a new type of faux leather that consists up to 80 percent of natural and plant-based materials. Outwardly it looks just like leather, incredibly soft and very robust. It offers an alternative to leather that looks real, but is not derived from animals or made of synthetics. You find SORBAS shoes made of faux leather in our ’80-series, labelled with a ‘v’.

Incredibly soft!

SORBAS 80’s are elegant and sportive shoes and sneakers made of soft leather. We avoid hard materials and use quality natural rubber and leather outsoles. The shoes always feel comfortable, because they are entirely of leather and come with flexible outsoles. We love clear design and unobtrusive minimalism.

Made in Europe

For our leather shoes, we use nappa and antique leather. It is superfine and soft and produced according to strict environmental standards. That is especially important when producing leather, because the production process can lead to substances that harm the environment and make it necessary to purify waste water. However, when employing modern production methods, the creation of environmental pollutants like Chromium VI can be avoided. We mostly use vegetable-tanned leather, but not exclusively. Our leather is breathable and adjusts to your individual foot – it feels comfortable and healthy.

Shoemakers quality

SORBAS shoes are manufactured in small shoemakers shops. We promote fair working conditions. SORBAS shoes are delivered to you directly, without middlemen. That empowers fair pricing and fair wages.

Approximately 75 percent of our shoes are completely vegan. We use innovative and natural materials that offer a real alternative to leather. They ensure high quality and are functional at the same time.

natural, vegan materials

Vegan sneakers and shoes already exist, but most vegan shoes are made of faux leather or microfibre. From an ethical point of view, they are preferable to leather shoes. However, they are still based on synthetical and non-renewable materials. We take one step further and offer vegan shoes and sneakers made of innovative materials. We use new materials to make vegan shoes that are natural and plant-based – and even breathable and water-resistant.
