What are vegan knee high boots?

Vegan boots (of any style!) are boots that don't use any animal products like leather or wool. Instead, they are made using vegan leather, wood, canvas and other animal-free materials.


What can you pair knee high boots with?

Knee high boots look great with miniskirts or under dresses, and they also work well with jeans - if you your jeans fit into the boots, that is.


How wide are knee high boots? How do you ensure they fit over your legs?

One tricky element with knee-high or thigh-high boots is finding boots that fit your calves and thighs. Look for boots' width and be aware you may need to return/exchange them.


Are knee high boots good for winter?

I love wearing knee high or thigh high boots when it's cold out as I find they keep my legs really warm - even warmer than a pair of jeans.

Depending on where you live, how much it snows and if you tend to have to walk across icy sidewalks, they may or may not work.

Be sure to look at the treads, and consider whether flat boots or a low heel would be easier to walk in in wintry conditions, rather than high heels.


How are vegan shoes made? What is vegan leather made out of?

Vegan shoes can be made out of different materials, from canvas to hemp to cork or vegan leather. Vegan leather itself is also made from many different materials.

It can be made from PVC (which is really bad for the environment and I recommend avoiding it - thankfully it's not used that much anymore by many vegan companies), polyurethane or PU leather or more recent inventions like pineapple leather, apple leather or mango leather, which are all made from leftover waste from the food industry. 


Should I give knee high boots as a gift?

It can be tricky choosing shoe styles, let alone talking calf circumference into account as well as shoe size, so a gift card to a vegan shoe store might be a better choice.

Immaculate Vegan has gift cards and make a great choice because this online marketplace sells a range of different vegan brands and styles, plus bags and accessories as well as shoes.

    • Glad you find it helpful! :) Wow, 14 years is an impressive length of time for boots to last – well done for taking care of them (I guess you must have taken care of them well for them to last so long!). Sounds like it!
