Equestrian meets motocross with Cri de Coeur’s cruelty-free knee-high buckle boot. Gray faux suede, coupled with a wooden block heel, evokes long jaunts in the country, without sacrificing your tough-girl edge.
UP A NOTCH
Unleash your inner dominatrix with Kailia’s over-the-knee boot. Constructed from Napa-esque faux leather, the boot can be worn with the cuff rolled up or down, so you squeeze extra mileage from that deadly spiked heel.
Dressed up or down, Marco Tozzi’s patent-black ankle boot is perfect for work, play, or any occasion that falls in between. No need to have a cow—this sophisticated, square-toed number is completely animal-free.
Fall offers a small window of opportunity to show some toe without risking frostbite, so seize it with the Neuaura’s Swan peep-toe boot. Don’t be fooled by its brawny buckled exterior— the fabric-and-pleather upper features a padded mesh lining for comfort and support.
One of this season’s hottest silhouette, the Chelsea boot gets a vegan makeover courtesy of Olsenhaus. A pair of gored panels lend the shoe a ’60s vibe, while the wedge heel and lug sole offer an of-the-moment appeal.
It’s raining, it’s pouring, and we’re all a-roaring about Roma Boots. Not only does the righteous brand provide you with a pair of 100 percent rubber wellies to weather the weather, but it also donates a pair to a child in need with every purchase.
If you’ve got dem ol’ Kozmic blues, try the Janis boot by Terra Plana on for size. Comprising a vegetable-tanned upper and a molded sole reconstituted from latex and risk husks, the shoe rates an admirable 3 on Terra Plana’s Eco Matrix scale for efficiency and sustainbility.
Inspired by the first women to leave home and join the workforce, Timberland’s Marge lace-up boot exudes an architectural grace with a retro flair. Constructed with leather from Chicago’s only remaining tannery, the shoe includes a boucle-wool lining for warmth and a textured recycled-rubber outsole for traction.
Ride off into the sunset with Vegetarian Shoes’ vintage-inspired boot, fairly made in Portugal from distressed faux nubuck, gunmetal rivets, and hard resin soles.
Saddle up with vintage Acme cowgirl boots in near-mint condition. Available in two-tone gray, each shoe features a stacked heel, perforated embellishments, and a faux-lizard foot.
