Animal Products Used To Make Rain Boots
It seems reasonable to think that all rain boots would be vegan because they are mostly made out of rubber (which is vegan-friendly). However, I have found that not to be the case with all rain boots. After a lot of research, these are the best vegan rain boots brands that are out there!
Just because a brand says that a pair of shoes is “made with faux leather” or “made with vegan products” does not mean that it does NOT contain any animal products. For example, just because the strap is made with vegan faux leather does not necessarily mean that the sole is also vegan-friendly.
From the outside, Uggs rainboots seem like they are vegan-friendly, but the insides are actually lined with sheepskin. You can also find leather on some rainboots; however, it is not that common since leather is not always water-safe.
Other than obvious non-vegan materials — like sheepskin, wool, or leather — you never know if a brand uses glues and dyes that are made from animal products.
This list of vegan rain boots brands only lists those that are certified vegan or labeled vegan by the company. If I was unsure, I personally contacted the company and will tell you their response! You can see some of the brands that I contacted below.
Notes on some popular rain boots brands:
- Crocs rain boots are not guaranteed vegan. I contacted the company, and they said that the material they use (Croslite) is comprised of proprietary formulations and they cannot disclose of any details. Therefore, I cannot claim that they are vegan-friendly.
- Sloggers rain boots are not vegan. When I contacted the company, they replied with a simple message: “No they are not [vegan] we apologize for the inconvenience.”
