8 Best Men's Vegan Boots UK 2022 | Timberland, Dr. Martins and More

Vegan boots are a necessity for British weather. It is no surprise that we love boots because they protect us from so many of the elements such as wind, rain, or even the dreaded leaf sludge in Autumn. While vegan leather may have been difficult to find a few years ago, nearly all brands offer a wide range of vegan boots that retain each brand's unique style with great durability.


We've found the best men's vegan boots in the UK from online retailers such as Amazon, ASOS, and John Lewis to showcase the best hard-wearing boots aimed at the workplace and the great outdoors to those designed for the more fashion-focused.

What Makes a Pair of Boots Vegan-Friendly?

What Makes a Pair of Boots Vegan-Friendly?

While most people are aware that leather comes from cowhide, there are also several other materials often used when making footwear derived from animal products. Suede and nubuck, for example, are also types of leather and anything that uses beeswax (which is a common waterproofing material) is also unsuitable for vegans.


Vegan boots are made from synthetic materials that mimic the qualities of products like leather and suede without unnecessary harm to animals. It used to be the case that many types of glue were derived from animal products too, but nowadays, nearly all brands use synthetic adhesives instead.


You can also look for a Vegan certification, which ensures that the boots in question are completely cruelty-free. Many Vegan products on the market don't have Vegan certification, however, but are still produced in a way that avoids animal products. It's a personal preference to whether you're comfortable reading a list of materials to determine if an item is Vegan-friendly or if you prefer an external certification.

How to Choose the Best Men’s Vegan Boots in the UK - Buying Guide

Whether you're looking for something for work, socialising, or everyday use, there is a style of vegan boots for almost any occasion! We'll take a look at the different styles and materials that are most popular online, as well as letting you know some handy tips on making sure your new boots are comfortable to wear.

Different Styles Tend to Use Different Materials

When it comes to men's vegan boots, a few different styles have proven popular over time. Whether you're a fan of Dr. Martens or looking for something for hikes and walks, the materials often determine the style and purpose of the shoe.

Faux Leather Is Popular With Dr. Martens and Other Ankle Boots

Faux Leather Is Popular With Dr. Martens and Other Ankle Boots

When imagining a pair of boots, it's difficult not to picture the classic Dr. Martens. Conceived after the second world war, Dr. Martens are a variation of an army, or combat, boot design, sharing the same high ankle support and lace-up features. Brown or black leather is a popular material for traditional army boots, so many vegan-friendly designs use faux leather to replicate the look and feel.


Even though they're a popular fashion choice these days, Dr. Martens' offers a fairly good amount of ankle support but are much more suited to the high street than the lake district. Army and combat boots have become extremely popular with the counter-culture aesthetic while also remaining a solid option for the workplace, making them a great all-around choice!


Other popular faux leather options include lace-up ankle boots and slip-on Chelsea boots. These come up just above the ankle and are a nice middle ground between a smart casual, fashion-conscious option and something designed for protection.

Vegan Chukka and Sand Boots Often Make Use of Faux Suede

Vegan Chukka and Sand Boots Often Make Use of Faux Suede

If you're looking for a smarter, more formal boot that would work well with a suit or smart-casual work-wear, then chukka, or sand boots, make a great choice. Traditionally made with suede, vegan sand boots are made out of microsuede which is a combination of different polyester fibres.


While perfect for dressing up, chukka boots are not at all suited to harsh outdoor environments as they're usually not waterproof. There are waterproofing sprays and waxes that can help protect your boots from the elements, but the level of ankle support and grip is nowhere near what is required for serious walking or a hazardous workplace. Still, they look fantastic with the right outfit.

Hiking and Walking Boots Are Usually Made From Other Synthetics

Hiking and Walking Boots Are Usually Made From Other Synthetics

It may seem strange to classify synthetics as their own material as faux leather and suede are, of course, synthetic materials. However, in this case, we're talking about the more traditional synthetic textures you'd expect to find on many sports trainers and walking boots. These have a breathable mesh-like quality to ensure that you're comfortable on long walks.


Hiking boots also make great options for more hazardous working environments, often having protective features like a slip-proof grip, steel toe caps, or puncture-proof soles. If you're after comfort and protection above all else, these are the style for you, but it would be very difficult to match most walking boots with an outfit!

Top 8 Best Men's Vegan Boots in the UK

Now that you know the things to look out for in a pair of men's vegan boots, it's time to check out our top 8 picks. Whether you're after something smart to go with a suit or more hard-wearing for the workplace, there's something for everyone below.
