Boot shopping season is upon us in most of the northern hemisphere. My fake Uggs from a couple of years ago are getting worn out. Even though they are so easy and warm, I'm getting sick of them. I bought these earlier in the fall and love them, but I want more options.
|Alternative Outfitters, $48, also in grey|
Not exactly marketed as eco-friendly, but cheap and vegan:
Payless is mostly vegan by default. I'm guessing from their numerous options of accidently vegan boots that it's cheaper to use man made fibers to make shoes.
|$34.99 on sale, also in brown and black|
|$29.99. Also in purple, black, and brown|
Forever 21 has quite a few vegan boots that are described as "leatherette".
|Forever 21, $32.80|
Alloy has quite a few options too.
|$42.90, also in chocolate, black, mocha, and taupe|
Sometimes eco-friendly, always vegan, a bit more expensive:
Lulu's has an amazing selection of over a hundred vegan boots, including these.
Moo Shoes has a large collection of vegan boots, including these from Madden Girl.
|Moo Shoes, $89, also in tan|
|Report, $65 on sale|
|Colin Stuart, $99|
|Planet Shoes, $169, also in brown|
If you look at all of their boots, you can find vegan boots from brands that aren't entirely vegan. These Blowfish wedge heels are made with faux leather and also come in black or "whiskey".
|Planet Shoes, $79|
Cri de Coeur is an entirely vegan company that makes shoes and other accessories.
|Cri de Coeur, $150|
Eco-friendly and vegan:
Bourgeois Boheme, a UK brand, has information on their website explaining why leather is never eco-friendly.
|£110.00, also in black|
|£45.00, also in black|
Beyond Skin, another UK company, offers these boots made from recycled plastic.
|£159.00, also in purple|
Vegan boots that are priced way beyond my reach, but a girl can dream:Olsen Haus has a page on their site that explains that synthetic materials are always more eco-friendly than leather.
|Are you ready for this? $595|
Now it seems like the hardest part is narrowing it down to only one pair of boots!
