Cozy Vegan Slippers for Fall/Winter 2020

Yesterday I was eating breakfast and saw an Instagram message pop up on my phone. One of my readers was asking if I had any recommendations for vegan slippers, because she was buying a gift for her husband and wanted to find a cruelty-free option. I thought I’d spend two minutes looking for the names of brands I’d bought from before, but it ended up taking over my whole afternoon yesterday and much of the day today!

Not only were the companies I bought from before no longer vegan (or unwilling to confirm), but I also found a whole lot of other misleading, confusing products out there. Most notably, I found quite a few items categorized as “vegan” that clearly contained wool (click here for my post on why I don’t wear wool). Fortunately I did finally find a few options for both men and women, and I’m finding more and more by the day!

Please note, only some of these slippers come from 100% vegan companies (if so, they are labeled as such), so if you head over to their websites for other styles, be sure to read all the materials lists!

WOMEN


Birdies Luxury Vegan Slippers

Stop what you’re doing and listen up- these Birdies luxury slippers are gorgeous. Birdies was founded by two women who were tired of all the unfashionable slippers on the market, so they decided to design their own. They’re very conscious about the demand for vegan options, so they make it extremely easy to find animal-friendly styles!

Pawj California Vegan Slippers (100% Vegan Brand)

Pawj faux sheepskin footwear

Pawj is a vegan luxury footwear brand out of Southern California. They first became known for making animal-friendly alternatives to Ugg-style boots. Fortunately, they also make cozy slippers! I own two pairs of their boots and one pair of slippers, and I’m completely obsessed. Pawj boots and slippers are pretty much the only footwear I wear during the winter, both inside the house and out.

Pottery Barn Vegan Slippers

Look who’s getting into the animal-friendly slippers game: Pottery Barn! I was so happy the other day to stumble upon a Pottery Barn ad that depicted these faux fur booties. A quick peek at their site revealed a wide variety of cruelty-free options for both men and women! I suspect the selection will change over the time, but for now, the options are affordable and cover a wide range of styles.

TOMS Vegan Slippers

Toms vegan slippers with faux shearling lining

We all know what to expect from Toms, so I won’t go into too much detail! For those who don’t know, every pair of Toms shoes purchased sends a pair of shoes to a child in need. Many of their newly released options for 2020 are vegan! Toms shoes and slippers are reliably high quality, so you can feel confident purchasing them online.

Toms always has a dedicated vegan section on their website, but for some reason it often excludes their slippers! So, I recommend going straight to the slippers section and just double checking materials before checkout.

Shop vegan slippers at TOMS.


Freewaters Vegan Slippers

I’m a huge fan of Freewaters and the work they do to heal our planet! Not only do they sell animal-friendly slippers each year, but they also use a portion of their sales to fund clean water initiatives in Haiti, Kenya, and the Philippines! Last year, I actually bought a pair of the Chloe Slippers for myself and the Jeffrey slippers for my husband, and we’re both still wearing them regularly!

Shop vegan slippers at Zappos or Freewaters.


Everlane Vegan Slippers

Everlane specializes in ethically made, sustainably sourced apparel, and this year they’ve launched vegan slippers! Described as, “a duvet for your feet”, the ReNew Slipper is made almost entirely from recycled materials! This slipper is currently available in four colors. Please note, Everlane’s slipper boot is NOT vegan.

ASOS Vegan Slippers

ASOS is a large online retailer with consistently affordable prices. They don’t technically have a vegan section, but they do have a leather vs. non-leather filter for many of their footwear sections. ASOS does carry non-vegan options too (unfortunately they carry Uggs, which are definitely not vegan), but the selection of cruelty-free slippers is usually pretty substantial! They add new options often, so be sure to check back frequently.

Isotoner Vegan Slippers

cozy vegan slippers from Isotoner

Isotoner is one of the leading manufacturers of slippers and gloves, so I’m thrilled to see how many vegan options they have! They don’t clearly label their slippers as vegan. However, you can scan the materials lists pretty quickly under the “Details & Care” tab. Most of their styles are made with microsuede (which is not real suede!), faux wool (not real wool!), microterry, rubber, and knit fabrics. Just keep an eye out for the occasional leather (especially on the bootie styles) or real wool, though it only shows up in a few of their slippers.

Shop vegan slippers at Amazon or Macy’s.


MEN


Pawj California

Pawj vegan moccasins for men

Pawj is a vegan luxury footwear brand out of Southern California. Their fans know them primarily for making animal-friendly alternatives to Ugg-style boots. Fortunately, they also make cozy slippers for men and women! I absolutely love their boots and slippers that I own! Pawj boots and slippers are pretty much the only footwear I wear during the winter, both inside the house and out.

NAOT Vegan Slippers

NAOT has been making shoes since 1942, so they know a thing or too! Fortunately, they’re very clear about specifying which of their styles are vegan. They only make one pair of men’s slippers, shown here, but fortunately they don’t contain any animal products! Yes, that includes the faux leather patch. This style, the “Men’s Laze”, is available in three colors.

TOMS Vegan Slippers

Toms vegan slippers for men

The faux shearling lining is what seals in the coziness for these cozy slippers. They don’t always label the men’s styles as vegan, so you’ll have to double check the product description. At the current moment (Nov 15, 2020), it looks like ALL of the TOMS mens’ slippers are vegan. However, they may still add new styles this season. Therefore, it’s still best to double check! As with all Toms shoes, buying a pair sends a pair of shoes to a child in need.

Shop vegan slippers at TOMS.


Sanuk Vegan Slippers

Sanuk vegan slippers for men

Almost all of the 2020 men’s Sanuk slippers are vegan! Sanuk does have a vegan section on their website, but it seems they’re still working through some kinks in the system, since they have quite a few vegan options that aren’t even listed on the vegan page! I recommend going straight to the slippers page, and just double checking materials before purchase.

Shop vegan slippers at: Amazon or Sanuk.


KEEN Howser Slippers II

Keen shoes to wear outdoors

I know these aren’t our idea of cozy Christmas morning slip ons! I included them because of how much my husband loves his Keen hiking sandals. Described to be, “like a sleeping bag for your foot,” Keen slipper soles use a blend of recycled polyurethane, cork, and memory foam to provide the utmost comfort. Despite the warm, welcoming microfleece lining that makes it a “slipper”, you can still wear them about town if need be. *Update: This is one of very few styles that has continued to be available every year when I check this slipper guide (currently doing so in 2020), so customers must be loving it!)

Shop animal-friendly slippers at KEEN or Amazon.



That’s what I’ve found thus far! If you know of any cruelty-free slippers, please feel free to link to them in the comments! Extra points if they’re environmentally conscious…that’s been tricky to find.

As always, thank you for leaving animals out of your wardrobe and letting them keep the skin they’re in!

  1. Thank you for making my shopping for my boyfriend’s gift a breeze! Although, putting the women’s slippers at the top has me tempted to shop for myself too 😉

    1. Yay! So glad it was helpful! Hope you decided to treat yourself as well 🙂 (I love them all, but the Pawj ones are my personal favorites these days)

  2. You refer to Meghan Markle as Princes Megan Markle – she is NOT a princess! She is known only as the Duchess of Sussex.

    1. Seriously Sam? How can you love one and not the other? 😳
      How can you be a vegan and support the murder of unborn children???
