Well, winter is here, isn’t it? The timing of this post is not coincidental. SNOWZILLAGEDDON has blanketed much of the east coast with a huge amount of snow and it’s a major wake up call to a lot of us, who are now looking out our windows and seeing a nice thick white carpet covering everything. Now comes the fun part – shoveling our driveways, digging out our cars, or trudging through the grey mush that will fill our streets for the next week. We all need to be prepared, and fear not, readers – vegan winter boot options are plentiful. See below for a few tasty selections sure to keep your feet warm and dry.
What’s up squad. Today we’re looking at some footy wear for the little ones. We here are so used to sharing the kind of stuff we want to wear, but we know that a lot of you are looking after smaller human beings who can’t really buy things on their own. And you want to make the ethical choice for them as well – respect! So when we came across these kids shoes by Native, we were psyched. Mostly because they are exactly the same as the adult shoes, which we love.
Hello internet people, we are very sorry we have been on hiatus for so long. We had some offline stuff to take care of which stole away precious time to continue our work on VK. But we’re back and we have a good one for you today. Many of you have checked out the site by Vegan8, and especially his shoe surveys which lays out very simply which shoe companies offer vegan shoes. We learned recently that he completed his 2015 survey, so we wanted to share that with you as soon as possible. In addition to sharing his site, we wanted to re-post his table here, but annotated with some of our comments. Don’t forget to click on the brand links – Vegan8 has provided additional information, including the exact correspondence and links to the relevant site within the company.
We’d also like to add that this is a great reference but it is by no means comprehensive. This entire site isn’t either but it can be used as one big resource for finding various companies policies. We find that the best way to do so is to browse by tags, or by search. Some of our information is dated but feel free to email or comment if you have any particular questions. Thanks again for visiting and keeping this site going – we are psyched that so many people around the world are going cruelty free!
Today’s article is dedicated to Ethical WARES, a UK shop that’s been serving the vegan community for 21 years! Throughout, they’ve been spreading a message of compassion and nonviolence through their various animal friendly products. They also engage in fair trade, locally sourced manufacturers, support the Tibetan freedom movement, and run a socially conscious indie music label. They even have room to take care of 50 animals in Caegwyn, Wales!

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 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!
We took a field trip to our favorite urban oasis and shot some great photos. Thought some of you would like to see them. Thanks so much to Wills and Unstitched Utilities for hooking us up with these samples. Pictured above and below are the Wills Desert Boot (Brown) and Work Boots (Black), plus Unstitched Utilities Next Day Hi QT (Black). Also we got a pair of Keep Homer Kitty, we had a pair and couldn’t leave them out.
We were able to get our hands on a couple of Wills vegan shoes on a recent trip we took to Maine. Pictured here are the Faux Suede Derby in grey and Desert Boot in brown. This will be our first installment, stay tuned for more photos and an in depth profile coming up!
