Leaves changing color and a crisper breeze can only mean one thing: Autumn has arrived! And while that means the tank tops and sandals of summer will need to be packed away for a few months, there’s no need to be sad. Even though the colder seasons mean wind and rain and sometimes frost, they also mean fun fall footwear, like boots! This season, think sustainable and recycled when shopping for boots. That means avoiding leather and wool, and opting for natural and vegan materials instead. Here are some of the most exciting fall boot styles you can wear without a guilty conscience.

Morigami Houndstooth Sparkle Boot by Sugar Shoes

Red Vegan Women’s Wrap Boots by TOMS

These aren’t your everyday boots. Wrap them up for a tall boot look, or keep them low to wear with jeans. Either way, the punchy red color adds excitement to any outfit! These boots are not made with animal products and feature TOMS’ signature canvas insole with cushion for comfort. Also, keep in mind that with every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, one pair is donated to a child in need! (From $98)

If the thought of cold weather makes you shiver, these are just the boots to warm you up. This scrunch boot is made with eco-certified suede uppers, and features nickel– and lead-free buckle detail.
