Dooeys vegan slippers

Best of: best vegan house slippers

These are more than vegan womens slippers – Dooeys are called “house shoes” (a cross between a slipper and a shoe) and one reviewer says they feel like “hugs for your feet.” 

They’re designed to support your feet much like a shoe, while being cosy and comfortable for use around the house.

These vegan house slippers have some serious eco credentials. The womens vegan slippers are made with vegan apple leather (made with waste from the food industry), sugarcane-based soles, a cork-based insole, vegan suede made from recycled polyester and a lining made of recycled plastic bottles.

Dooeys come in two styles, the house shoe pictured above, and vegan mule slippers if you prefer a shoe you can slip on. The mules are also made with vegan apple leather, sugarcane and recycled plastic bottle lining, plus feature a coconut husk footbed with cork lining.

The founder of Dooeys decided to create the company after living in Amsterdam and working from home there and feeling like she had to choose between sneakers and unsupportive slippers. Dooeys are the best of both worlds, and perfect for support if you have hardwood or tile floors.

These vegan leather slippers are ethically made in Portugal and shipped with carbon neutral shipping in recycled packaging.

Cork slippers with white lining and black soles (cork outer is natural cork colour). Stamp on outer shoe that says Montado and features a small graphic of a tree

Eco friendly unisex cork slippers

These slippers are made from eco friendly cork. Cork is one of the most eco-friendly materials because cork trees are harvested without cutting down or harming the tree, and the trees require little input in terms of water or fertiliser. It is also biodegradable, depending on how it is treated.

As well as being a regenerative material, cork is also a durable material and will last you a long time. Plus, cork generally has a reputation for fair labour treatment - see more here.

The cork used in these slippers is from Montado, Portugal, which grows half the cork in the world and consists of 21% of the forests in Portugal. The cork trees are harvested every 9 years. Cork is hypoallergenic, lightweight, impermeable, soft and elastic.

You can clean cork with soap and water.

One thing to note is that some reviewers state they stretch slightly over time.

FAQ

What are vegan slippers?

Vegan slippers are simply slippers that don't contain any animal products. Similar to other vegan shoes, they don't contain any leather, wool, fur or other animal by-products.

They can be made from a number of materials, from organic cotton to polyester or recycled polyester, faux fur, vegan leather, hemp or even cork.

Some vegan materials are more eco-friendly than others; I recommend Heal Label's materials list to see what fabrics are vegan and which are eco-friendly. While most vegan materials are more sustainable than animal-based materials like leather, silk or alpaca wool (see Higg material index here), there's variability between different vegan materials. (Note that the Higg index I linked doesn't show organic cotton vs conventional or recycled polyester vs standard polyester.)

Cork, for example, is a highly sustainable material and so buying slippers made with cork (like these cork slippers on Etsy) is a great idea to be more sustainable. There are also plenty of innovative and sustainable new vegan leathers, such as the apple leather made with leftover food industry waste used in Dooeys slippers, alongside cork, recycled plastic bottles and coconut husks.

 

Where to buy vegan slippers?

You may be able to find vegan slippers in a shop near you, though they probably won't  be labelled vegan. Just check what they're made of and be sure to avoid leather, wool, fur trim etc. Here's a link to shoe label symbols and what they mean.

Sometimes it's easier to buy online where shoes are often better labelled as vegan! Hence my list above - check out my list of vegan slippers you can buy online.

 

Does Ugg make vegan slippers?

Ugg has not endeared itself to vegans over the years - their shoes are made of sheepskin, and so are not vegan or cruelty-free! In 2021, PETA announced that following a petition, Ugg had decided to launch a vegan line. However, there's no evidence of vegan Ugg's on the Ugg's website. Did they never launch? Did they discontinue them? Who knows, but as of now there are no vegan Ugg's. Instead, try Pawj, a cruelty-free, vegan alternatives to Ugg's. They make 100% vegan Ugg style boots and slippers.
