Pig skin

Pig (swine) for Muslims is a Filthy (Najis) animal and is haram, therefore no part of the animal should be used by Muslims especially its skin in the form of shoes, gloves, belts, wallets, handbags or any other item.

Some shoe manufacturers use the pig skin for inner lining and sometimes use the pig skin in the outer lining as well, either way it is Najis and should not be worn by Muslims.

As far as we know the following two brands of shoes in Australia contain pig skin and should be avoided, please click on the name to take you to the letter they sent us confirming pig skin is used in their shoes.
