In our books, planning makes perfect. Now is the time to set yourself up for success by picking the perfect eco-friendly additions to your fall/winter capsule wardrobe for colder months to catch you 100% prepared rain or shine and ready to show off your new sustainable style.
Below, our round up of hot picks for the season.
South Bicolor Stone Beige & Black
A show stopper if we ever did see one. These eco-friendly boots are made for walking, dancing, kicking, jumping, and everything in between. ALOHAS caught so many people’s eye with this beige and black split colored style that first launched close to a year ago.
You might have seen it all over Instagram and you must know that it is most definitely influencer approved. Its lateral zipper adds practicality and comfort to an otherwise ultra glam accessory.
If your style happens to be more on the classic side, but you know how to make jaws drop, this is the sustainable footwear option that suits your needs.
A tall, right under the knee zip up boot featuring the currently so popular square toe. The leather that makes up this pair oozes quality and stays true to the brand’s made in Spain signature.
A riding boot inspired eco-friendly option that becomes all the more special thanks to its wooden effect block heel and sole contour. Equal parts bold and glamorous.
International certified sustainable leather
Not sure how to tell apart sustainable winter boots from fast fashion items? Trust the experts.
The Leather Working Group is the largest organization in the world dedicated to auditing leather supply chains around the globe and certifying the ones that live up to a strict set of sustainability standards. It’s no secret that leather is one of the most durable, high quality materials for winter, but picking the right suppliers to work with is key in order to ensure environmental best practices are not compromised.
Because leather happens to be one of the star elements in its fall collections, ALOHAS works with certified sustainable suppliers who have received the seal of approval from the Leather Working Group.
West Black Vintage
This is a brand OG for ALOHAS. Sleek, slightly edgy and endlessly elegant.
This pair of eco-friendly booties fits the definition of a fall wardrobe basic to perfection. The wooden effect block heel turns this otherwise ultra basic essential into a special piece to pair with anything from your favorite pair of jeans to an autumn-friendly midi dress.
Did someone say winter wonderland?
Wearing this off-white colored, rain boot inspired pair feels (and looks) like walking on a cloud. Its chunky sole adds comfort and volume, making this style perfect for A-line skirts and midsize to ultra long winter coats.
Our advice is to combine them with light toned neutrals, like beige, camel, white or light grey for an angelic monochrome outfit moment. Available in black too.
Made in Spain and why that matters
With its team split between Barcelona and Alicante, in the coastal region of Spain, ALOHAS is undeniably Mediterranean at heart.
All of its shoes are handcrafted by expert artisans that have been making eco-friendly boots for decades. Not only are their production methods sustainable, so are their working conditions. The relationship between employees at the office and employees at manufacturing facilities is close and has been nurtured for over six years since the brand was founded in 2015.
The made in Spain label, additionally, ensures local production and a more environmentally friendly process involving all stages of the supply chain, from design to craft to packaging.
Can Can Beige
Combat boots with a flirty attitude. These sustainable, certified leather shoes are the new must have for colder seasons.
They go with almost any color and provide a firm grip thanks to its lace up front close. With a maxi sole to survive mildly unfavorable weather conditions, they are perfect to throw on for a full day of moving around the city with a jam packed schedule.
They will get you through it with style, we promise.
Block Total Black
Have you still not tried the futuristic trend look?
This is your chance: a mid length glove type sustainable boot designed and handcrafted by ALOHAS. It has an edgy, sleek structure that makes it super flattering for the lower body and a lateral zipper that makes it incredibly easy to put on or take off.
With a 5 cm platform heel, you have nothing to fear when it comes to taking on a jam packed schedule or going on a daylong stroll around a new city (weekend getaways, we’re looking at you).
Bonus points! An early bird on-demand discount
One of the best ways to make sure your shopping habits are kind with the planet is to pay close attention to the brand behind the goods. ALOHAS is often talked about in relation to its on-demand production model, a business strategy it has popularized in recent years all throughout the fashion industry and other sectors.
What does this buzzword really involve? A zero-stock policy enabled by holding off on production until after purchase orders are registered in the system. Think: traditional fashion calendar, reversed. The usual order takes us from stock forecast first, production second, purchase orders third, to, lastly, sales or discounts that attempt to mitigate the harmful overproduction caused.
Alternatively, on-demand offers early birds a discount for shopping mindfully via pre-order, after which precise stock forecasts are planned, followed by small batch production of quantities that fit exact demand levels. A win-win-win for fashionistas, the firm, and the planet.
A discrete but still fashionable pair of low rise boots that will give you a hard time finding something it cannot be combined with.
The signature chunky sole by ALOHAS is featured in this silhouette too, adding volume to the pair and providing extra elevation to your step. With an easy slip on design and a back hold for extra comfort while putting these on. Its side elastics make it suitable for different calf sizes thanks to its stretchy fabric.
Name a more versatile pair of sustainable boots, we’ll wait!
Marshmallow Black Leather
Throwing in an extra option to the list for those who aren’t sure what in-between season styles to go for.
Work from home or not, here’s a cozy alternative to boots. If you have yet to try walking on an anatomic sole, this is your best bet.
What is it exactly? A structural form and material function that adapts to the natural shape and morphology of your foot. Not only does this add comfort, it also helps avoid injury from walking and provides a cushioned sensation to keep you going wherever you need to go all day.
Now that you have discovered the 7 eco-friendly boots you should add to your wardrobe this fall (plus one surprise suggestion), the only thing stopping you is deciding which one to get first.
Carefully selected materials, a small batch production model, and a made in Spain label make these the best selection out there for the upcoming colder months.
