Style: Walk Proud


This season's most ethical boots are also the most aesthetically pleasing




FOR THE GIRLS:

SHUN EXCESS

The Wabi’s simple design means it requires fewer materials, less manpower, and less energy to produce. It’s also completely recyclable. $150, Camper; www.camper.com

CHOOSE WISELY

This sleek boot can be custom-made in a variety of non-leather fabrics, from organic cotton denim to faux suede. $345, Beyond Skin; beyondskin.co.uk

GET NOTICED
These runway-ready boots are made from PVC-free plastics derived from plants. $795, Stella McCartney; stellamccartney.com

BE WILD
Leather, yes, but these nature-inspired boots are created using a nontoxic tanning and dyeing process. $200, El Naturalista; elnaturalista.com

SEW IT UP
Vegetable-tanned leather and recycled quilts never looked so good. $235, Terra Plana; terraplana.com

MOSEY ALONG
You may look like you’ve stepped right off a ranch, but nary a cow (or any other animal for that matter) was harmed to create this boot. $125, Matt & Nat; mooshoes.com

FOR THE GUYS:

LET’S ROLL
The waterproof Roll-Top boot has a hemp upper, which can be rolled up for extra coverage or rolled down for a more casual look. $110, Timberland; timberland.com

FORGE AHEAD
This lightweight yet sturdy boot includes a Cambrelle lining to wick away sweat. It’s also quick-drying and water-resistant. $129, Garmont; thevegetariansite.com

CONSOLIDATE
Quite possibly the most eco-friendly boot in existence, this baby contains the recycle remains of seat cushions, file-folders, soda bottles, coffee filters, and magazines. $75, Jade Planet; jadeplanet.net
