Cozy Vegan Slippers!

Vegan slippers guide

Yesterday I was eating breakfast and saw an Instagram direct 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 slippers” 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 vegan 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 vegan 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. Birdies got a *bit* of a bump after being worn by Princess Meghan Markle, so don’t expect them to go away any time soon! They just added a new vegan section, making in extremely easy to find animal-friendly styles.

Extra bonus- if you can’t fully invest in a pair right this moment, they have a great option for payment plans!

Pawj is a pretty new company out of Southern California. Their line is primarily focused on selling animal-friendly alternatives to Ugg-style boots, but they have this one pair of vegan slippers as well! I own a pair of their boots, and I’m completely obsessed- I wore them every single day after receiving them this winter (see my raving Instagram post about there here)! So, I imagine the slippers are of similarly high quality.

Update: I just received my own pair of these Pawj vegan slippers and I’m in love! The quality is exceptional.

Pottery Barn Vegan Slippers

Look who’s getting into the vegan 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

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. This year, they have quite a few vegan slippers available! They don’t have a specific page for just the vegan slippers, as of this posting, all of the slippers on their slippers page are vegan with the exception of the plaid felt bow slippers (which contain leather trim).

Freewaters Vegan Slippers

I’m a huge fan of Freewaters and the work they do to heal our planet! Not only do they sell vegan 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 Amazon or Freewaters.


ASOS Vegan Slippers

ASOS has an amazing tool on their website that allows you to see only non-leather options! ASOS changes their selection often, so results are likely to vary, but at the moment this should link to their vegan slipper selection! ASOS typically keeps their prices very low, so these slippers are not only animal-friendly, they’re also wallet-friendly!

Skechers Vegan Slippers

Fun fact I just discovered; on the Skechers website, you can put “vegan slippers” in the search box and it actually gives you accurate results! And surprisingly, they actually have a wide variety of options- at the time I’m writing this, they have 26 vegan options! Sketchers has a reputation for making high quality products within an affordable price range, which can be hard to find.

While perusing Skechers’ vegan slippers, I recommend starting with the BOBS line, as they donate a portion of proceeds to one of my favorite animal rescue non-profits, the Best Friends Animal Society! Since starting this program, they’ve donated over $3 Million!

Isotoner Vegan Slippers

Isotoner is one of the leading manufacturers of slippers and gloves, so I’m thrilled to see how many vegan options they have! They aren’t clearly labeled as vegan, but 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.

TOMS Vegan Slippers

The faux shearling lining is what seals in the coziness for these cozy vegan slippers. For some reason, they don’t clearly label the men’s styles as vegan like they do with their women’s styles, so you’ll have to look for the word “vegan” in the product description. All the styles pictured above, which are three of their five currently available slipper options, are confirmed vegan! As with all Toms shoes, buying a pair sends a pair of shoes to a child in need.

ASOS Vegan Slippers

ASOS changes their search results system somewhat frequently, and at the moment there’s no “non-leather” filter on the men’s slippers (yet, there still is on the women’s slippers!). That said, most of the current men’s slippers are vegan anyway! You just have to skim the materials list, but almost all are made from faux suede, faux leather, or other textiles. ASOS typically keeps their prices very low, so these slippers are not only animal-friendly, they’re also incredibly wallet-friendly!

Sanuk Vegan Slippers

Since I first wrote this post last year, Sanuk has actually added a vegan section on their website, which is so helpful! However, it seems they’re still working through some kinks in the system, since they have a few vegan options that aren’t even listed on the vegan page yet! I’ve written to them to confirm, but based on the product descriptions, I’m pretty sure their entire “Chill” collection is free of animal products!

Shop vegan slippers at: Amazon or Sanuk.


KEEN Howser Slippers II

1011882_P_PDP

I know these aren’t our idea of cozy Christmas morning slip ons, but I included them because of how much my husband loves his Keen hiking sandals (he doesn’t have the slippers). 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.

Airwalk Charles Moc Vegan Slippers

Honestly, sometimes you have to look at the bottom of the price range (these are currently priced at $14.99) to find what I call “accidentally vegan” shoes. Basically, the manufacturers aren’t necessarily trying to avoid animal materials, they just can’t afford them. Still, you have to double and triple check, but since I found these through a PETA recommendation, I feel pretty safe. The website description notes the faux suede and mentions that the shoe is comprised of “fabric and manmade materials”. I bought these for my husband last year, and he still wears and loves them!

Mahabis Summer Slipper

I put Mahabis in the “men’s” category to even things out, but technically these are unisex (every style comes in women’s and men’s sizes). Mahabis seem to be one of the most highly rated slipper companies out there, according to rave reviews across numerous publications. Wired magazine calls them, “slippers for people who don’t do slippers.” GQ says, “Mahabis have completely reinvented the slipper from ground-up.” The Daily Telegraph calls them, “A masterpiece of comfort and practicality.” That better all be true, given their price tag of $95! Only the lighter weight “Summer Slippers” are vegan, so I recommend these for someone whose feet get too hot in other slippers!

That’s what I’ve found thus far! If you know of any cruelty-free vegan 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!
