Warm, Fuzzy, and Animal-Friendly!

The following article was written by PETA staffer Royale.

Baby, it’s cold outside!

As the winter months wear on and the shelves overflow with flocks of fuzzy-wuzzy selections, remember: It’s as important to stay tenderhearted as it is to stay trendy. When it comes to fur—whether it came from an animal on a fur farm or from one who was trapped in the wild—every bit of trim produced caused an animal tremendous suffering and took away a life. You don’t want that on your hands—or feet—right? And shearling has the same sad story; no amount of fluff can hide the fact that anyone who buys wool supports a cruel and bloody industry.

So, to keep your toes toasty (and your heart ice-free), I suggest the following faux-fur footwear and synthetic shearling shoes!

No socks needed. The following picks are like pillows for you paws—and the only kind of furry tongue a girl dreams of. Am I right?

Bakers’ Oscar: $59.95

River Island Turtle Faux Fur Lined Flat Boots: $77.56

Blizardd by Steve Madden: $89.95

These heeled booties are nothing short of shear-joy!

Woollen Collar Heeled Boots: $35.80

Aldo’s Straugter: $48.99

ASOS Autograph Faux Fur Cuff Lace Up Boots: $94.82

Flats or heels, these winter shoes are sure to make a statement. Faux snow! (Like fo’ sho’, get it? OK, I’ll stop now!)

I have a pair of Aldo’s Straugter boots on the way. Which pair is your favorite? Tell me in the comments section below.

    Hmmm…pricey….but I prefer the flats. Heels are particularly impractical in the ice and snow! O.o

    I love the blizardd shoe a lot

  • Deanne O says:

    I love the Aldo’s Straugter shoes! I’d be rocking in shoes like those! What a statement!

  • Kristin Wilson says:

    How can we be sure it’s faux fur? With so much faux fur turning out to be cat and dog fur from Asian countries, how do we know these aren’t?


    I’d like to know where I can purchase these in the UK. Thanks.

  • Ariela says:

    wow the Blizardd is a pretty shoe!! Im in canada and I’m sure these would keep me warm during winter…i love those shoes!!!

    I have one problem with faux fur/leather. And it’s not with the product itself.

    I’m scared that if I wear it and people think, “that looks good, I want that look”, unless they speak to me they won’t know that it’s faux, or won’t get to speak to me about the reasons it’s faux. So then they’ll copy the look with real leather or fur.

    At the same time it’s important to show the world that a lot of animal products can be re-created humanely and that being vegan doesn’t stop us from being fashionistas or eating fakin’ bacon or the like. And so long as people say, “but hey, aren’t you vegan?”, and you can answer them, then that’s exactly what it does. But what about the people that just ‘see’ us eating bacon and wearing fur and leather and don’t for a moment realise that we’re not?

    And btw I’m not in the least bit against faux animal products, I just worry about the perception of others and would like feedback.

    My e-mail address is if you’d like to give me your opinion.

    Thank you!

    I LOVE the ‘Aldo’s Straugter: $38.49’!!!! But how much will the shipping cost of them be? I live in South Africa but would LOVE a pair!!! 🙂 Please help!

  • Nikki says:

    The link to the Aldo shoes is for Aldo-Canada….if you look up these same shoes on the American site, they are $48.99 on sale from $80.00…this is kind-of misleading.
