OK, so it’s not exactly difficult to find vegan goth / punk / alternative shoes on the Internet, but these are reasonably priced and not as flimsy as some of the other ones out there.
These are the ones I nearly bought, but in the end I bought a pair of the Nova boots, as I thought I’d get more wear out of them (which I have. I wear them all the time).
Like the Novas, they were instantly comfortable and look absolutely great on. Somewhat biker-style, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you the kind of outfits they’d go with. Some boots are made for walking, these are definitely made for stomping. They are definitely on my shoe wishlist for this winter and beyond.
These are truly impressive vegan boots and although not quite victorian, they could still blend in with a steampunk outfit. If you’re keen to look more “period”, though, I’d check out the other vegan steampunk boots I wrote about earlier.
These boots are available from Schuh directly. They are self-explanatorily named “Schuh Multi Buckle Lace Boots”.
