Are you ready to meet this season’s most compelling sustainable boots? I hope so because I’m ready to tell you all about them.
First, let me paint a picture. You take a look at the mirror, and you really like what you see. You even snap a photo for Instagram. Your #OOTD is perfect. A few hashtags and sips of coffee later, you go out to conquer the day and, oh, what’s that? Is it just you, or are these brand-new shoes super uncomfortable?
We’ve all been there. No matter if they were a good deal or anything but good, if your shoes are causing you pain, then you have to let them go. Or you could take a deep look into the fashion edit below, featuring thirteen pairs that you’ll want to show off to the world and will also step up your style game.
From the pretty affordable pairs to the ones Cardi B would gift Kulture for her birthday, and the undeniable classics to brand-new horizons, it’s time to pick your new favorite. Then you can kick-start fall and actually enjoy walking in them.
13 SUSTAINABLE BOOTS THAT WILL STEP UP YOUR STYLE:
1. ABLE WILMA BOOT
I’m pretty sure you already have at least one pair of chunky boots in your closet, but do you have chunky boots that are actually sustainable rain boots?
This water-resistant perfection is coming to weatherproof every single look you are ready to pull off during the cold days of the year. Pair with a knitted midi dress, so you get the best of both worlds. And so you don’t look like Sherlock Holmes. They are a fantastic must-have to consider for your closet.
2. SÉZANE ADÈLE BOOTS
Dare to correct me if you think I’m wrong, but anything with Adele in it is worth giving a shot.
Made of crust leather in Sézane‘s Portuguese atelier, the almost knee-high Adele boots will add extra spice to your Posh days (Sorry, Vic). Just so you know, they come in black, tan, and khaki, so whatever your choice is, you can style them in the best manner possible.
If you are usually between two shoe sizes, choose the size above. Oh, don’t forget to rock it with some subtle jewelry and a tote bag.
3. MATISSE SPIRIT ANKLE BOOT
Although I hate the whole ‘new normal’ concept because everything that’s happening in the world is far from normal, the new take on fashion is full of strong shapes and statement pieces.
So in case you haven’t thought about getting white ankle boots with heels before, you should do it now. Let me introduce you to this western-inspired pair, which is made of vegan leather (kudos for that) and will look fierce with your knitwear. With your horseback riding equipment too.
Matisse is a brand name you should remember because they source sustainable and reusable materials and also lessen their water-shed waste. We love that!

4. DEAR FRANCES VEGAN SPIRIT BOOT
While everything on the runway is thrown out of whack, vegan sustainable boots are just as delightful as they always are.
If you want to level up your style aesthetic and not do it with a piece you’ll wear for two weeks at most, get the Dear Frances Vegan Spirit Boot. Not going to lie, it’s a pricey investment, but in case you are interested in sustainability and delivering a better future for the fashion industry, don’t give it a second thought.
Crafted from eco-vegan apple leather and checking all invisible minimalist boxes out there, they are like a Hollywood movie without Lady Gaga in it – possible, but not really. Finish with draped pants and an oversized shirt.
5. ALOHAS CAN CAN VEGAN
Come for the style, stay for the comfort. The functional and sophisticated design of these vegan leather boots offers the perfect grip without making you look like you’ve prepared for the biggest blizzard in history.
Yes, they are made of vegan leather. Yes, they’re available in eight different colors. And yes, you can wear them with anything in your wardrobe. Name something. Yes, you can wear it with that too!
Plus, Alohas are a great example of how many big brands should handle the sustainable approach – besides materials, packaging, etc., they put next season’s pieces for sale in advance. Meaning they produce only the desired amount of pairs and do not stock up warehouses when it’s not necessary. Now that’s smart.
6. REFORMATION LOUIE STRETCH SOCK BOOTIE
If sock boots are not everywhere around you this fall, it’s a good idea to reconsider the people in your social circle. Or at least let them know women’s sustainable boots no longer equal classic.
They come in different shapes, textures, and colors. These, in particular, offer stacked heels, square toe, and an inside zip for an extra snug fit. Nevertheless, they are coming with a Reformation tag. The team behind this favorite of mine has a long-term commitment to transparency – for everything from their processes and their people to how things arrive at our doorstep.
I think this pair would look great with vegan leather pants and a gray turtleneck!

7. ABLE ELIZA BOOT
Whether you like it or not, patterns are having a *major* moment right now.
Made in Brazil, helping women transform their communities, Able’s Eliza Boots are what you need once October rolls around, and you can’t just put on your favorite sneakers on because it’s raining cats and dogs.
While I still have some problems with using this idiom without imagining… cats and dogs, I do know this versatile pair would go well to any denim outfit of yours. Even better than Rihanna going with A$AP Rocky for that 4 AM walk everyone seems to be still talking about.
8. NISOLO EVERYDAY CHELSEA BOOT
I don’t know if I’m the first to let you know this, but you can (literally) step up your style game with sustainable Chelsea boots.
They are stylish, they are comfortable, and an essential part of every influencer’s autumn fashion perspective. Meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility, Nisolo strives for that better future I’ve mentioned above, and this pair is no exception.
The delightfully cream hue will stand out even if you decided to go all-black on the day Netflix cancels your favorite show. Can you imagine how cute they are going to look with a puffer jacket?
9. REFORMATION NYLAH NAPPA KNEE BOOT
Alongside many other things, Reformation is creating some fierce competition for all the sustainable boots brands out there. Just take a look at the Nylah Nappa Knee Boot.
The product description states that the 90s called (again), but I see something very 70s. The knee-high length, the block heel, the square toe. The calf-hugging fit!
Pair with long vests, sweaters, mini skirts, it really doesn’t matter. I believe Barbra Streisand would agree with me. Finish with some pearl earrings, so you can shimmer in the sun and glimmer in the night. P.S. They come in black too!

10. ALOHAS WEST VEGAN BLACK
If you are on the hunt for sustainable winter boots, today is your lucky day.
And if your winter plans by any chance include paying the occasional visit to the office, you need Alohas’ West Vegan Black boots. They’ll look amazing with that structured blazer you bought a couple of months ago. The same applies to your oversized print sweatshirt and high-waisted denim.
Don’t even get me started on the brown contrast sole and the stitching detail from across the toe up to the ankle. ‘Lovely’ would be a serious understatement.
11. STELLA MCCARTNEY TRACE CHELSEA BOOTS
Too far-fetched or not, a few things are willing to get me excited for fall, and ethical boots are one of them.
Stella McCartney’s gorgeous Chelsea boots, for example. The brand (and Stella herself) has always wanted to make every action count, so clicking add to cart is not an impulsive move but a way to upgrade your style POV with something versatile, timeless, and able to stand the test of time.
Opt for the classic look and wear them with a camel coat, or go in the punk direction and match with a sexy V-neck dress.
12. NISOLO CARMEN CHELSEA BOOT
Looking for sustainable hiking boots? Well, maybe another time.
Rugged yet elegant, quite formal yet casual, the Carmen Chelsea Boot is here to deliver the ultimate comfort and effortless chic we all need and want. After all, YNK is where the day will take you, so it’s best to be prepared. Finish your look with a soft sweater and leather leggings, or put on sharp-fit pants.
Grab an umbrella, ella, ella. And you are ready to go! So simple, huh?

13. DR MARTENS VEGAN 1460 LACE UP BOOTS
If we are talking about affordable sustainable boots and not mention Dr. Martens, that means we still have some work to do.
Offering 100% vegan construction, this pair from the classic (celebrity-favorite, also-loved- by-everyone) brand features all of their signature… well, features – the grooved sides, the heel-loop, the yellow stitching, and the air-cushioned sole. Not to mention the super cute cherry red color that will make you feel the English countryside vibe even if you are on the other side of the planet. At least you can get that sustainable-boots-Europe vibe.
Did I mention the boots are unisex? So if you want to match with your bae, that’s not only possible but highly recommended. It’s not like I’m calling him right now. I’m not. Wait, I am.
