The 7 Eco and Vegan Sandals, Shoes, and Boots I Wear All Year Long

Alohas Boots

Whether you’re replacing your summer favorites, heading to a warm-weather destination, or just looking to update your shoe game, this list of eco, vegan sandals, shoes, and boots ticks all the boxes. Read on to discover my favorite must-wear Birkenstock sandals, sexy ankle boots, fun clogs, espadrilles, and more.

While I love all of these styles, what I really love about these shoes and boots is that all of them are made by conscious companies using eco, vegan materials that are better for the planet without sacrificing on style. 

Eco sandals, shoes, and boots


1. Birkenstocks Sandals

These Arizona Essentials are just that — summer essentials. Made from lightweight, flexible vegan EVA material, these sandals are shock-absorbing, waterproof, and skin-friendly so you’ll want to wear them everywhere.  Dress them up or down. You can’t go wrong with these super comfy Birkenstocks. 

Aerosoles Pedro Clogs

2. Aerosoles Clogs

The clog is a cute summer shoe for adding a bit of fun and flare to any outfit. I love these Aerosoles Pedro Clogs in faux leather. Made for comfort and style, the white or black clogs go with literally everything! They’re super cool and cute but for the person with a sensitive foot, beware they can feel a bit like those traditional wooden clogs.

Alohas boots

3. Alohas Boots

For a night out or a day in the office, these beige vegan leather ankle boots with block heels from Alohas are perfection. Made for comfort and style, these boots are 100% cruelty-free. I just love these cute, comfortable boots that dress things up nicely!

Soludos espadrilles

4. Soludos Espadrilles

Does anything else scream summer like wedge espadrilles? Tie up these summer essentials underneath a skirt, dress, shorts, or just your swimsuit! Made from soft linen and biodegradable jute, you’re wearing your ethics with your style.

Stella McCartney platform pumps

5. Stella McCartney Platforms

Make a statement with these stunning platform pumps from Stella McCartney. The designer never uses leather but you’d never know it from looking at this pair. Perfect for the office, cocktails, or a night out, the gold buckles add the perfect sparkle with every step. I recognize these are pretty pricey but they’re fabulous. I wear these with jeans and a top and they dress up any outfit

Nomadic State of Mind rope sandals

6. Nomadic State of Mind Rope Sandal

Embrace your inner bohemian with the original rope sandal. The simple rope sandal has been worn throughout history, but its function and style are timeless. Dress these up and down. 

Aera sandals

7. Aera Sandals

I like these very cool vegan Italian-made Gina chunky flat sandals from Aera. The tubular Nappa-inspired strap is as soft as it is stylish. I love how these chic sandals look with a long, flowy skirt or dress. Bonus: Aera is a Certified B Corp!
