I'm in desperate need of some boots that will keep my feet warm AND dry! I have my eye on the Sorel Glacier but I"m not 100% sure that they're vegan. They don't seem to have any leather on them so I suppose they are but just wondering if anyone has any recommendations.
Hmmm...I have some Bass Snow Boots that I got at the Bass outlets in Pennsylvania. I looked at their online store, however, and there's nothing that isn't leather. (???) Anyway, I'm just thinking you might want to check out the sale boots at some outlets or regular stores. The boots I have are 100% vegan (although they aren't advertised as such, it says "all man-made materials") because even when I wasn't vegan, I felt iffy about wearing sheep skin boots. Anyway, the boots were super cheap because they were on sale (No one wanted them because they weren't Uggs), and they've lasted me two winters so far. Sorry, this probably isn't super helpful, but it just proves that you can find vegan shoes at "regular" stores. Keep your eyes peeled!
Thanks Evie! I'll keep my eyes open. When it comes to these boots I do not really care what they look like because when my feet are cold and wet all I care about is being warm. I live in Manhattan so my feet are my transportation and the last few days have been brutal. My poor daughter ended up in tears after 15 minutes of sledding on Sunday because her feet were so cold. :-(
I'll keep looking around. I wanted to check out the place called Mooshoes people mention but their online site doesn't indicate any super warm boots.
I was also considering the Hunter boots with the fleece liner they sell. I don't know if theyre really eco friendly though and I'm not positive they'd be warm enough but they'd have to be better than my current rainboots that don't have enough room for warm socks!
Maybe you could ask a health food store clerk if they know of any vegan shoe stores in the city? I am a huge fan of asking for people's recommendations...I found an amazing chocolate store that way, and I was able to finally find some beautiful local pottery...Anyway, you'd be surprised what people know, and in places like Whole Foods or other smaller health food stores, the employees I've encountered are fairly well-versed in alternative fashion/food. Sorry about your feet! I live an hour and a half north of the city, and it's freakin' cold up here!!!!
I spent a lot of time searching for vegan snow boots and recently purchased these Patagonia boots called "Fiona. I'm very happy with them so far. They are also made with recycled materials! This website has the best deal:
