Ah, fall, when every girl’s fancy turns to thoughts of boots. I’m discovering that boots are one of those buy-to-last pieces — as much as I might want a new pair every season, I’d rather pay more for an ethically made pair that will last for years and years.
Whether you are investing in a new pair of boots this year or you just like window shopping, don’t miss these fabulous boots for fall: (From top, left to right)
Lily Paige from Made Fair
Seriously, can we talk about these boots? Just gorgeous. Made fairly by Fortress of Inca, but I believe this color is available only in Made Fair’s collection of curated styles.
Espe from Root Collective
The Root Collective’s first foray into boots has been amazingly successful — even their pre-orders have been selling out! These booties are great for a casual, everyday look with jeans. Made fairly in Guatemala with handwoven details.
Harper Chukka from Nisolo
I love my chukkas from Nisolo. These super-versatile boots are made fairly with transparency in Peru. These are becoming a standard hipster uniform in Nashville.
Modern Chelsea Boot from Everlane
This sleek Chelsea boot is made in Italy under Everlane’s banner of radical transparency. Head to Everlane’s site to learn more about the manufacturing process and working conditions.
Luisa from Fortress of Inca
Check out the simple lines of this tall boot from Fortress of Inca. These are definitely an investment piece; made fairly in Peru with byproducts of the country’s meat industry, these boots mean you’re investing in fair wages, paid maternity leave, and sustainable materials.
Delrey from Fortress of Inca
I just can’t get enough of Fortress of Inca this season! Their selection of ethically made shoes and boots is amazing. I may have to watch for some sales.
Combat Boots from Vegetarian Shoes
You know you want some classic combat boots to go with your floral dresses this fall. These vegan-friendly boots are made from a breathable, synthetic leather and are made in a factory in Poland.
Will you be shopping for boots this fall or making the most of what’s already in your closet?
