Today’s vegan boots will not win any awards for style. I can picture some of you are either shaking your heads or making a sour face right now. Stooop. If you’ve been here before, you know how we do. We put out the good and sometimes the ugly (never bad). Vegan shoes come in all shapes and forms, and we have to embrace the diversity! How slick do you need a black rubber boot to be anyway? When you are trudging through the snow, or you work outdoors in winter weather, how much of this does it all matter? If you really want to go for style over substance, I would check this list out.
I was downright psyched when I started reading about the feature rich Bogs Classic Ultra Mid 2 (for men). It’s waterproof, with a 4 way booty construction with a natural rubber overlay. It’s warm because it’s got 7 mm of neotech fiber. And it’s comfy because it has a European last – narrower in the heel, wider in the toe. Sure beats a plain old rubber rain boot like this one.
Of course, can’t forget about the women and children. Unfortunately, the Classic High Handle (in black) and the Kids Classic Mid (No Handle) do not feature the insulation of the Ultra Mid 2. But you still get 100% waterproof rubber and a stretchy bootie/shaft (heh). The Classic High Handle is also a little bit more easy on the eyes, with a narrow silhouette and shiny black finish. And come on, you gotta love the camo on the Kids Classic.
