As feeds begin to fill up with the classic cinnamon-spiced latte meets chunky knitwear aesthetic, most of us are gearing up to assemble our cold-weather wardrobes for the coming seasons. A key staple of fall and winter fashion, no autumnal ensemble is ever complete without a stylish pair of boots to match. Ditching leather and suede for vegan alternatives, these three fashion brands offer everything from chic Chelsea boots to knee-highs Serena Van Der Woodsen could only dream of.
1) Dr. Martens
High-street favourite Dr Martens’ vegan range swaps leather for synthetic polyurethane plastic. Offering cruelty-free versions of their signature military-style boot, channel 90s vibes by pairing your DM’s with jeans and a baggy jumper. Alternatively, for those feeling cute: a skirt, tights and oversized coat should never go amiss.
2) Matt & Nat
Boasting a stylish selection of heels, knee-highs and rainboots, Matt & Nat have got you covered. Spearheading the vegan market, this fashion brand has been producing cruelty-free footwear from recycled materials since 1995. More expensive than high-street brands, treat yourself to a pair of Matt & Nat’s vegan boots when payday comes around.
Good old Marks and Sparks. Not only has this classic brand brought us Plant Kitchen (god bless the rainbow sushi wrap) but they’ve also launched their own range of vegan footwear. One of the more affordable options to take on the cold weather, M&S offer everything from tie-back ankle grazers to rider knee-highs and bold-printed boots; a stylish alternative that won’t break the bank.
