Sustainable winter boots

Winter shoes should primarily protect against snow, wetness and cold. But it is not so easy to find warm and sustainable winter shoes for men and women.

Viele Winterschuhe sind zwar warm, aber weder fair oder gar vegan produziert.

First of all, it is important to know what characterizes a sustainable winter shoe in the first place. The different brands focus on different aspects here: Some use sustainable, vegan leather for their women’s and men’s winter shoes or work with materials made from recycled PET bottles. Others use animal leather from Europe – sometimes even from certified organic livestock farming. There are no precise rules defining when a winter shoe can really be described as sustainable. One thing is certain, however: if you find out more about the brand, the production and the material of the shoe before you buy it, you’ve already done a lot right.

Und ein echter Umweltfreund noch dazu: Das robuste Nubukleder aus der deutschen Manufaktur Heinen zählt qualitativ zu den besten weltweit, das warme Innenfutter mit Recycling-Anteilen wärmt auch an eisigen Tagen. Und die recycelbare und PTFE- sowie PFC-freie Sympatex-Membran garantiert trockene Füße und eine gute Atmungsaktivität.

The sustainable winner among winter bike shoes

If you don’t want to miss out on cycling in winter, you should invest in a robust and weatherproof winter cycling shoe. Vaude has invented the perfect sustainable solution for this: The half-high cut, waterproof and windproof winter bike shoe Minaki II STX.

This one protects reliably against dirt and moisture thanks to the waterproof construction with recycled Sympatex membrane; a good insulation layer also keeps the feet warm up to above the ankle. The VAUDE Green Shape label also guarantees an environmentally friendly, functional product made from sustainable materials.

This way, the biking season goes easy into all-year extension! The trade magazines MountainBIKE and RoadBIKE confirm this: The Minaki Mid II STX convinced an expert jury and took first place with 92 out of 100 points with the top rating “Outstanding” in their winter cycling shoe test 2020/2021.
