You’ve switched to a plant-based diet, and now it’s time to create some conscious changes in your lifestyle too. The next step is improving your wardrobe by beginning with your shoes. Now that’s a great move! Below, you’ll discover the best vegan winter boots that will instantly elevate your looks and help you make the transition smoother.
There’s a stereotype around being a vegan. Many people seem to think that vegans spend their days walking around barefoot, doing yoga, hugging trees, preaching love and kindness, fermenting their own kombucha, dressing strangely, and overall being some kind of ‘weird hippies’.
In reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Just because someone chooses a way of living which excludes all forms of violence and cruelty to animals for food, fashion or lifestyle, doesn’t mean that this person automatically stops caring about everything else, including their looks and style.
Being a vegan and dressing well can certainly go hand to hand if you know where to get ethically made, cruelty-free clothes and shoes that can make all your outfits look chicer.
In this article, I’ll cover the footwear department. And more specifically, we’ll be focusing on boots. Keep reading to find the best vegan boots that will improve your style and upgrade your looks.
These Vegan Winter Boots Will Instantly Elevate Your Looks:
These elegant vegan ankle boots with a block heel from the sustainable shoe brand Alohas are the perfect addition to your closet, especially if you are (or looking to be) dressing more feminine and classy. The heel size makes them ideal for an everyday shoe, whilst the slim, smart silhouette will level up the most basic of looks.
We all need a stylish pair of classic boots, and this one ticks all the boxes. Can you even tell that it’s not real leather?! I didn’t think so!!
Here is another gorgeous animal-friendly alternative to the timeless ankle boot style from the luxury vegan shoe brand Beyond Skin. Hand cut and made in Spain from luxurious vegan suede and 100% recycled breathable faux leather, these boots are a key wardrobe basic that will never go out of style. Sure, it’s an investment but when it comes to shoes, that’s where you want to spend a little extra. Because quality matters. Especially when we’re talking about a basic wardrobe essential that you’ll be wearing on repeat, year after year. If your shoes are falling apart after a few months of wearing them, then constantly having to buy new ones can rack up quite a bill.

Not a heels girl and looking for something more fun and unique? How about these stunning vegan Chelsea boots from Stella McCartney? They will definitely get all the attention (and likes!) on the gram, so if you can afford to get a designer pair, why not? I mean, I know I want them, for sure! Look how comfy they look, and I love the chunky sole! It will add some height (5cm to be precise) and elongate the silhouette, which is always a bonus!
Did you know that all the Stella McCartney’s shoes and accessories are 100% vegan as a part of their cruelty-free ethos? Can we get more designers to follow her example, please? GUCCI, are you reading this?! (Probably not, but a girl can dream.)
Love chunky ankle boots, but designer ones are not accessible for you? Don’t worry! Here is a lovely budget-friendly alternative from SCHUH. Having a pair of vegan friendly winter boots in a neutral color will bring more variety in your outfit choices and help you boost your style game immensely. Yes, they may not be the most efficient ones when it comes to weather as they’re made of fabric, but you just have to be mindful and don’t wear them when it rains. Apart from that, they would make a pretty good vegan boot for when you don’t feel like wearing black.
Here’s another PETA approved vegan pair of boots from & Other Stories that is deserving your attention. Made of cotton canvas with a chunky heel and rubber detailing, these are perfectly suited to fit casual fall or winter outfits. They also come in black, so if you’re not into neutral tones but love this exact same style, definitely check them out.
Looking for vegan waterproof winter boots? These Dr. Martens Chelseas are the ones for you! You just can’t go wrong with a simple, versatile style like this. Made with Dr. Martens iconic AirWair Bouncing Soles that are oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance. These boots will carry you through winter and beyond. Seriously, if you’re planning to add just one staple pair of vegan leather winter boots this year, bet on these. I have a pair of vegan Dr. Martens myself and I swear by them!
These are the exact Dr. Martens boots I own and as I said I love them! They will keep your feet warm and protected from wind, rain and snow for many, many years. Actually, I don’t think that Dr. Martens will ever go out of style and if you’re looking for good, durable boots that will just do the job, you should definitely consider these (or the pair above).
Let’s move to something a bit more feminine. Stylish knee-high vegan boots definitely exist, although, I gotta admit, they weren’t that easy to find. Luckily, Alohas decided to bless us with this stunning pair, and I’m all over them. Knee-high boots are such an undervalued gem, and I don’t know why. They pair so beautifully with skirts, shorts and dresses, as well as with skinny fit jeans, and even leggings.
When you’re going to an event or a date night and want to dress a little more elegant, but it’s freezing cold outside, these boots right here will be your savior!! Can we also talk about the color?! I mean, GOALS!!
