NAE stands for "No Animal Exploitation", a name that carries our mission: to propose an alternative against animal exploitation. Our shoes and accessories are 100% vegan. None of our products are made from animal skin, fur, or any other meat by-products. We exclusively choose synthetic, recycled, and natural materials.
When NAE Vegan Shoes was created, our founder Paula Pérez was inspired by her personal need to adapt the principles of veganism to the footwear industry and the duty to reduce the impact on animal life. This was in 2008.
Since then, the exponential growth of the worldwide vegan community has amplified the impact of our brand. NAE's origin is built on the cornerstone of veganism, a commitment we strive to honor every day in the best way we can.
How are we managing the current pandemic crisis?
NAE’s factories, warehouse and physical store have adopted the necessary sanitary measures to ensure Covid-friendly workplaces. Our Lisbon office team has been working from home. To protect our workers from the pandemic's socioeconomic impact, no employees were laid off and all salaries remained.
