Winter boots are often filled with fur, lined with shearling, and have a leather or suede external. However, it is not necessary whatsoever to buy boots with these materials. There are plenty of non-animal derived materials that can be used to make vegan-friendly boots that are warm, comfortable, and cute. If you are accustomed to buying from other brands that obtain their materials through animal cruelty (such as UGGs), don’t worry, here’s a great guide!
Below are some ethical alternatives to popular winter boots. All the boots are vegan-friendly and available on Amazon!
