Let's get right to the boots...
VEGAN LACE UP BOOTS
Men's Off white Converse Style High Top Lace Up Chukka Boots by Palladium
- Men's all-canvas high-top boot in off-white with a matching shoelace that can go all the way to the top.
- Looks to be modeled after a traditional high top like an old-school Converse shoe.
- Has a white rubber toe cap and sole with good tread and grip.
- Palladium logo patch is stitched onto the tongue.
- Advertised as vegan: No, but the materials are canvas and rubber.
- Pros: Nice casual boots for light recreational activity. Uber trendy high top design you can pull off with jeans or utility pants. Reviewers report that the soles don't wear out easily.
- Cons: Limited seasonal use and function. Definitely a warm weather boot for walking or activities that require flexibility in your footwear, but not quite sturdy enough for hiking.
Women's Cherry Red Jadon II Vegan Leather Combat Boots with Platform Sole by Dr. Martens
- Super thick-soled women's cherry red combat boot in shiny vegan leather from Dr. Martens.
- Rises just over the ankle and laces all the way up with a black bootlace.
- Pull tab on the back helps you slide your foot inside.
- Platform sole is about 2" all the way around.
- Bright yellow welt stitching around the top of the outsole gives a little color pop.
- Slip and oil-resistant sole for safe walking on slick surfaces.
- Advertised as vegan: Yes.
- Pros: You'll get the quality guarantee of Dr. Martens boots and a kick-butt look for your wardrobe. Because they're so slip-resistant, you can wear these as work boots, but you'll probably want to wear them for their trendy style with jeans for a casual look or with a fashionista-approved maxi skirt.
- Cons: Very pricey and we're not sure if they're waterproof, which we'd sort of expect from multi-function boots like these.
Men's Brown Faux Leather Lace Up Chukka Boots by New Look
- Men's short, dressy ankle chukka boot in dark brown faux leather.
- Minimal lace-up design with a brown bootlace.
- Has an interesting stacked heel with a couple of black layers sandwiched between layers of wood-like material.
- Rounded toe at the end of a sleek, elongated foot.
- Advertised as vegan: No, but these boots are advertised as faux leather.
- Pros: Occasion-ready boots for the dapper individual. Rock them with a t-shirt, blazer and classic selvedge denim jeans. If they get dirty you can clean them up with a swipe of a damp cloth.
- Cons: We're not sure if these are padded inside or not, so we can't speak to the comfort level of these boots.
Women's Black and White Lug Sole Lace Up High Heel Boots by Express
- Intriguing women's high-heeled lace-up boot with an almond toe in white polyurethane material.
- Features a black work-style lug sole and 4" chunky high heel.

- Zip-up construction with a pull tab on the back of the boot for easy on/off wear.
- Advertised as vegan: No, but the materials are all synthetic.
- Pros: A catwalk-esque alternative to high-heeled Timberlands. You'll want to show these off with shorter bottoms. Throw on a shiny bomber jacket and you've got quite a stylish outfit.
- Cons: No inclusion of insole padding in the product description, and with heels that high, you'll want some cushion. They're also a little up there price-wise.

- Men's dressy navy blue lace-up boot with mixed textiles and a real vintage appeal.

- Pros: A little funky, very vintage-inspired and totally eye-catching formal footwear. Match these boots with a dark vest and black slacks.
- Cons: Not a translatable style for all types of events.

- Padded insole makes for comfortable walking.
- Black rubber sole and a low heel for everyday wear.
