The Top 7 Men’s Vegan Boots for Deep Cold & Snow

Sandal season is officially over.

Old man winter isn’t messing around this time, is he? It’s really cold out. And what’s with all this snow??

As adult men, we can’t just take these conditions on with sneakers. It’s not right. No matter how convenient it is, we need to start refusing to shovel in sneakers after a good ol’ Sunday night dump (of snow).

What we need is proper winter boots for deep cold, and while we’re at it, for deep snow. And if we’re compassionate men, we need them to also be vegan. 

I know, I know, finding vegan winter boots can be tricky. But take your slides off – there’s no need for them. We’ve got you covered.

That’s it for this year! Have we missed anything? If so, please let us know! 

Oh – one more thing, if you’re wondering why you don’t see anything from the famous winter brands like Sorel or Canada Goose, it’s because they’ve informed us that they don’t have any winter boots (or footwear at all) that is free from animal-derived materials and ingredients. 

If you’d like to help change that, all you have to do is ask them. 

If enough people ask, they’ll see the market demand is there, and might choose to offer vegan products to avoid losing out on sales.
