I’m not the first to say these boots are ugly and I won’t be the last. I’m guessing you’re probably one of the many who loves to hate (but actually secretly loves) these slipper-boot hybrids (otherwise why would you be reading this?).

Love them or hate them, the popularity of UGG boots seems to continue, especially after their recent resurgence. 

Personally, I’ve always found UGG-style boots to be hideous, so I’ve never owned a pair. However, it seems I’m in the minority, so I have to give the people what they want. 

And they want vegan UGGs!

So, I’ve tracked down (just for you) five 100% vegan brands that offer vegan versions of the classic UGG styles.

And if you’re looking for more boot options for winter that are cute and warm, check out my guide to vegan winter boots by clicking here.

The Ugg-style slipper boots from this vegan brand (that’s the in-house brand of the Vegan Style website) bear an uncanny resemblance to the real thing.

Leave it to this vegan brand (that carries everything!) to create an UGG-style boot that actually looks cool. 

Okay, so it probably looks cool because it doesn’t exactly resemble an UGG and looks rather more like a trendier version of a Bogs boot, but still, it has my vote!

They come in an insulated variation (ideal for winter) and a regular version to wear during the rest of the year.

Perfect for walking the dog in comfort and style.

Click below to shop the styles for both women and men. And for my German-speaking audience, this brand’s website is available in German to make shopping that much easier.

Final Thoughts

No need to pass up the comfort and warmth of UGG boots because you’re vegan.

As you saw, the vegan (and cruelty-free) options are plentiful and arguably better than the originals.
