Winter has come, and we all should know the problems that come along with that, concerning fashion. I personally decided, to keep it practical and cozy this winter, not caring about the fashionable aspects too much. I know, it sounds weird:D
This leads me to the topic, I want to talk about tonight: winter boots.
I have one pair of black, leather biker-boots, but when it´s getting really cold, and Berlin tends to get really, REALLY cold, these boots just can´t give me the warmth that my feet long for. So, each year, I go out, with my feet getting colder and colder with each step. THIS year, since it is my “practical winter” I thought about how to solve this problem: And my answer actually was: Get over it, and grab yourself some UGG Boots. WELL, I can imagine, most you should think: “EEEEWW!” right know. And you´re right with that! Even Carine Roitfeld banished UGGs from Vogue Paris (contentwise). And I always was a huge, loud enemy when it came to these shoes. They may be warm and cozy, but they´re expensive and, which is the worst, known for their unethical production (which, facing the pricing, ist simply unbelievable). OK, I´m not the ultimate saint here, I wear leather boots and eat meat and stuff like that, BUT I try to make my little contribution and at least eat or wear stuff, that is made in a respectful, painless way from animals, that have been treated correctly. You know, what I mean?
Well, I decided to find ethically correct UGG Boots then. And I found them! Tadaa! The company is called “BooRoo” and they take responsibility for both, the animals and human beings. On their website, they say: “For every pair of BooRoo shoes purchased, we donate a meal to those in need through the World Food Program USA.”. Further they say: “Unlike genuine sheepskin products, no sheep are sacrificed to make our shoes.”
And now, let´s come to the price: They (only) cost 89 to 99€ , which is, comparing an UGG Boot for around 250€, a real snip! I bought them here (if anyone is interessted).
I ordered my very own BooRoo boots a couple of weeks ago. They are cozy, warm and just perfect for winter. I love them! And I can wear them, knowing to support a good project. Isn´t that just amazing?
That´s the story about the “Sheep Friendly Winter Boots”. Hope you enjoyed it. What shoes do wear in wintertime?
