ERSATZ UGG

We’ll try not to judge. If UGG-style booties are your jam, take the animal hide out of the equation with the Neauara’s Robin which comprises waterproof synthetic suede (derived from recycled plastic bottles, natch) and the cushiest faux fur lining this side of the Tundra.

GREAT WHITE NORTH

Made in Canada, where people know cold, the Alexandra by Kamik features a quilted nylon upper, cushy fleece-and-foam insulation, and a molded felt insole for plush underfoot comfort. Bonus: You can send the boot back to Kamik for recycling when it’s ready to shuffle off the mortal coil.

Note: May contain fleece.

+ Alexandra $50 (on sale from $95) at Amazon

STORMY WEATHER

Sure, the Kelly Vinter by Tretorn may look like an old-fashioned rubber rain boot, but the faux-fur and post-industrial mesh lining would beg to differ. An EcoOrtholite insole, made from non-food bio-oil, completes the cushy setup.

+ Kelly Vinter $85

    Sorel’s arent vegan, I’ve sold some… And they are made in Asia, no longer made in Québec, Ca…We don’t really know if they are fare trade and all… All I know, is from experience, they only last 2 years tops, then the canvas usually cracks…

    Please see The North Face’s Down Policy. I wouldn’t describe Down as vegan.

    Hence our “mostly vegan” disclaimer.

  6. hayley99 says:

    Vegan means 100% animal free, therefore “mostly vegan” doesn’t make any sense. It’s either vegan or it’s just slightly more environmentaly friendly than regular brands. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but using the term vegan in this article is a little misleading.

  7. Jasmin Malik Chua says:

    “Mostly vegan” as in most of the boots we featured are vegan. Not “this boot is mostly vegan”.
