The Best Winter Boots In The World

Mandi January 12, 2011 15

My favorite purchase of 2010 was, hands down, my snow boots! It was love at first sight with these Sorel Tivolis. I snatched them up and they kept my feet toasty, dry and absolutely adorable throughout the record-breaking Northeastern snowfalls. Even though snow is a rare occurrence in Portland, I’ve still been wearing my trusty old boots to keep my toes warm and dry. Tivolis are Sorel’s vegan friendly, super cute and magically comfortable snow boots. This year they have released even more styles that do not disappoint. If you are looking to buy winter boots this year, this is my #1 recommendation. They feel as if you are literally walking on clouds, they will keep your feet warm in the coldest of climates and you will receive nonstop comments. A big win all around!

    I was just looking at some Sorel boots today – Now that I’ve read this, I think I’ll add them to my cart :)

    Hi! So some bad news for all of us vegans who love Sorel boots. The glue that they use contains an animal by-product, so they’re not actually vegan. Super sad, right?

    Hey all! I have emailed Sorel to ask them if their Tivoli boots contain animal ingredients in the glue. I was previously told that they were 100% vegan by an associate. Just making sure! I’ll keep you posted.

    I have been coveting these boots since last winter. Too bad they are out of ye olde price range!

    Since I think your blog is awesome, I subscribe to it via Google Reader and thought it was completely hilarious and inappropriate that Google sticks an ad for Ugg boots at the end of this post.

    I need some winter boots badly! And these are the ones I was looking to buy; unfortunately when I called Sorel’s customer service line to make sure they were 100% vegan, the customer service rep told me there is leather on the shoe. Unfortunately if you look at Sorel’s website they don’t list leather as one of the materials… but according to the rep I called who looked up all the materials – they do :(

    hmm interesting. Did you ask about the Tivolis specifically? Because there are many other Sorel boots that are made with leather.

    Did Sorel ever email back and say if the Tivolis are vegan?

    Hi there!  I will contact Mandi and see if she ever heard back from them.

  14. VeggieGrettie March 21, 2012 at 9:17 pm -

    I heard back from Mandi and this is what she said, 

    “I did get a reply and they
    basically said that all of the textile materials are vegan but they can’t
    confirm if the glue is 100% vegan. However this is true of most “man-made” shoes
    that come from companies that don’t exclusively use the term “vegan”.

    Why aren’t there any guy’s boots that are this awesome? :(
