Winter Boot 2014 Roundup Part 2

Brave Gentleman Visionary Boot

Visionary Boot by Brave Gentleman, available at Vegan Chic

Here’s part 2 of our 2014 winter boot find.  This time around, we are emphasizing form over function.  We have no expectations regarding the warmth or water resistance of any of the dressier looking boots.  Most of them look seem they can handle some rain and some minor snow.  But a lot of these we wouldn’t advise using for real bad days.  We hope that between our two posts that you find something that is suitable to your needs.  Enjoy!

Winter Boot Roundup 2014 Part 1

Winter is here, so best make sure you’re ready for the elements.  We have put forth a variety of vegan boots here, from the functional to not so functional, warm and insulated to thin uppers.  Some are just on here because well it’s an excuse to buy a pair of boots.  But we found so many on our first sweep that we have to break it up into two articles.  This is a good thing, there’s more out there than ever before for the animal friendly shopper.  We hope that there’s something here for everyone.  Happy viewing and stay tuned next week for Part 2!

Macbeth Vegan Roundup November 2014

Macbeth Matthew


We recently checked in on Macbeth and were impressed with their expanded selection of vegan shoes.  They got a nice showing, with some synthetic leather high tops as well as some trainers that look suspiciously like the Saucony Jazz Low Pro.  Of course, they have their canvas staples like the Eliot.

Pictured here are all men’s models, which are available at Zappos. Unfortunately only women’s vegan model here is the Eliot.  Click the images for a direct link to the site.

Ahnu Roundup

Ahnu Cruz Vegan 1

Today we are doing a roundup of vegan shoes made by Ahnu, an outdoor footwear and clothing company based in San Francisco.  They primarily offer hiking boots, yoga gear, and functional slippers.  While we are mildly disappointed that Ahnu doesn’t have more vegan friendly options, there’s a lot to like here.  Click below for more pics and words.

Adidas by Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney Pure Boost

Many of you probably already know about Stella McCartney as a fashion designer and animal activist.  But we here at VK did not know that she had her own line of clothing and shoes made by Adidas.  At first, we were skeptical.  But man, are we impressed with the interesting materials and designs of these kicks.  Plus, some of these are very functional and practical, from comfortable slip ons to serious running shoes.   It is obvious that her company didn’t just slap her name on a bunch of generic Adidas.

Faux Moccs

Faux Moccs - The Classic Suede Like Moccasin

Babies (and toddlers)!  We all love them.  And we’ve all been one.  They need shoes too.  But you want to keep their feet free of leather and other undesirables.  Your dilemma is now over.  Introducing Faux Moccs (pronounced FOX MOX), a vegan and environmentally friendly baby shoe company, made in the USA.

“When I learned about the cruelty that went into animal farming, there was no way I could justify NOT going vegan. I threw out every piece of leather I owned, but I was heartbroken at the idea of parting with my moccasins” says Kortney, the founder of Faux Moccs.   “Fast forward several years and I wanted moccasins for my son, a soft soled shoe to protect his feet, while still allowing them to move the way nature intended. There are tons of companies that make baby moccasins, but I couldn’t find a version that was not either leather or vinyl. I knew there were other people in the same boat so this is how Faux Moccs was born.”

Faux Moccs - Cruelty Free Vegan

There’s a whole lot to like about these little booties.  Of course, they are completely vegan, made out of 100% nylon or polyester fiber.  They are free of vinyl, PVC, vinyl, or plasticizers, while still managing to be breathable and water resistant.  They’re durable and easy to clean.  And they’re available in just about every color combo imaginable.  Get a pair for your little one, or for someone else’s little one!
