Now that the weather is turning colder, perhaps you’re searching or mens vegan boots. I know from experience finding vegan shoes can be a bit tricky.

I’ve been vegan since 2008, though I stopped wearing leather much earlier (as a lifelong vegetarian, once I discovered where leather came from, I didn’t want to wear it anymore).

Unfortunately most major retailers don’t label their vegan shoes (though you can use this guide to symbols to try to work it out). It’s often easiest to find mens vegan shoes online for that reason!

To help you out, I’ve put together this guide to the best brands for vegan mens boots.

Wills vegan boots’ style tends towards classic, like these black lace-up boots.

They are constructed using Goodyear welting, considered the gold-standard of boot construction, which can take up to eight weeks to make.

Because of the way Goodyear soles are made, they are easier to repair (more information here), making them longer-lasting and more eco-friendly.

These walking boots combine the versatility of wellies with the comfort of walking shoes.

The uppers are water-resistant and scratch- and abrasion-resistant. Note that they’re not suitable for wearing in running water, deep snow or deep puddles for extended periods of time as they’re only water-resistant rather than water-proof, so if you live in a snowy climate this won’t make good snow boots.

Thanks to the anatomic recycled cushioned insoles, they’re comfortable for walking extended periods.
