Every man needs a good pair of boots that will age gracefully through more than one winter. While we appreciate leather, the Visionary Boot (100 percent vegan) by Brave GentleMan can hold up just as well as the best calfskin on the market. We are not suggesting you change your mind about throwing a steak on the grill, but these boots give you a wardrobe option you can feel good about. They are 100 percent vegan, sustainable and fair labor.
The Visionary Boot is part of an ongoing collaboration with Brave Gentlemen x NOVACAS. NOVACAS is an organization committed to providing animal-friendly as well as environmentally friendly products. The boot is built out of Italian PU microfiber that breaks in like any leather. They are manufactured in Portugal in worker-friendly factories too. The boots come in brown, black or patent and run $304 a pair. If you like these and want to consider adding eco-friendly menswear to your arsenal check out the Brave GentleMan. The line by designer Joshua Katcher is all eco-friendly. Katcher is known as a leader in ethical menswear. He started menswear site The Discerning Brute in 2008, which focuses on fashion, food and etiquette for the “ethically handsome man”.
