For the girl who’s weaning herself off a certain fur-lined boot, the struggle is real, we know. Our feet love to feel warm and cozy, but our hearts don’t agree with what happens to sheep in the wool industry. Thank goodness the Moo Shoes website lets us have our cake and eat it, too! Your feet (and animals) won’t be able to thank you enough.
The riding boot is here to stay, and this closet staple is the perfect finish to any casual (read: effortlessly chic) outfit. Saddle up and try these classic Marins on for size.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the chunky snow boots that you see people trudging around in all winter, especially since most of them are made with leather or suede, fur, wool, and/or down, but in lots of cold-weather climates, thick and durable styles will save a gal from losing a toe. How great then that Jimmy Native Shoes offers a 100 percent cruelty-free version of this boot to keep your toots just as warm and protected from the elements! The company even makes some for the babe in your life—d’aw!

Quilted patterns are not just for grannies anymore. This style has infiltrated the market in all forms, shapes, and sizes, and, somehow, it works. “Fantastic boots!” comments from complete strangers are on the horizon. And let’s be honest—we all secretly love that.
These bad boys aren’t messing around. “Hello, hi, yes, you want me.” It’s like they can hear our deepest thoughts.
Whoa, Nelly. It’s as if the style of #11 got a makeover, and we’re not mad about it. They’re also available in black.
I can’t even—I really just can’t even. Holiday red, vegan suede, metal tipped toe? Cowgirl or not, these girls had you at hello.

Hey there, compassionistas, did you know that every year, millions of animals are killed for the clothing industry—all in the name of fashion? Deciding to make small changes to our closets that are kinder to animals and the environment—while allowing us to live by our deepest values and still have fun with our wardrobe—is one of the easiest ways to have a positive impact on the world!
