Allison recently scouted out some adorable eco booties.
Luckily for those of us who love to cover a little more leg in winter, there is a cozy selection of sustainably manufactured, eco-friendly full-length boots, lined up for the first sign of snow on the ground.
These boots represent the various faces of the full-length green, from downtown dressy to snuggly to casual urban trekker.
For a touch of urban rugged, Patagonia‘s Wild Thyme boots are sturdy, streamlined and ready to hike. These beauties have a natural cotton upper and a 70% natural latex outsole with a coconut-fiber heel. (On sale for $99)
The Banjo boot from Terra Plana, a knee-high stunner with several delectable eco-features including a comfy rubber and rice-husk sole and vegetable-tanned leather. (£175)
From Simple, these Toetally wool felt boots warm your toes and your conscience. They lace up down the back of your calf and snuggle your feet in organic bamboo liners secured with jute laces.($120)
From Spanish eco-luxe shoe company El Naturalista, a rustic-but-refined look emerges this winter. Natural rubber and breathable carbon insoles are a draw, as well as this adorable knee-high sweater-boot design of the Duna.
Bonus boot: because winters are wet, we can’t resist mentioning Hunter Wellington boots. They were a hit last winter and given their 100% recyclable materials and luscious color selection, the trusty all-weather standbys are here to stay for another hibernation!
