Hottest Eco Boots for Fall Part One: Over-The-Knee Boots

I have a thing for boots. If I could wear them all year long, I would, and I almost can in Portland. I set out with the goal of rounding up the 10 hottest eco boots for fall and ended up with a list of well over 10 styles to grace those gams, ranging from barely a boot ankle tall to sky high to the thighs, so I opted expand the list and break it into categories. Let’s start with the hottest look for fall, the over the knee boot. For those brave enough to rock them and with the leg length to pull them off, here are my top picks for over the knee boots for fall, all of which are vegan to ‘boot’.

Neuaura has several stunning sustainable styles (say that 10 times fast!) this fall, but the Sunbird over the knee boot is a standout. Pictured above folded over at the knee for versatility, these equestrian inspired boots feature hardware & strap detailing, a padded mesh liner and a flexible rubber out-sole for comfort.

The Dillon Over-Knee Wedge boots by Cri De Coeur (above) are a calf-hugging, lace-up statement look, a sort of stylized combat boot with far more feminine lines. With ease of wear in mind, they have an elastic gore behind the knee for flexibility and side zipper access for easy on & off. Also of note in the over-the-knee category from Cri De Coeur are the slouchy & flat Ariel boots, and the Ravishing boots, part of the 'Hearts of Darkness' collection, another stylized equestrian with double buckle embellishment behind the knee.

The fall Olsen Haus Fall collection is truly drool worthy, with scores of boots & heels to choose from, in a range of colors & textures. The Sweden boot, shown above, is one of my fall boot favorites, hitting all the marks with a 3” covered wedge for height and comfort, a 1” platform, and contrasting color fold over option at the knee, all in a soft, recycled microfiber. If you're looking for something flat & versatile that folds at the knee and would not seem out of place in the Sherwood Forest (I like that Robin Hood vibe) then the Beauty boots might be a top pick for you.

One word comes to mind to define the Beyond Skin Romeo Over-The Knee Boot: smokin’. Their first over the knee boot, hand made in Spain, is turned out in a beautiful faux leather, with a 4” stiletto heel, inside zip up, back knee split with padding and lining for comfort. Look out skinny jeans...you have met your match!

Will you rock the over the knee look this fall? Tell us how you wear them. With jeans, leggings, a tunic & tights? I might just have to muster up the courage to pull on a pair myself. Stay tuned for parts two and three of Hottest Eco Boots for Fall, highlighting the best of the mid height and ankle boots this season.
