9 Must-Have Vegan Clogs for 2023

Are you looking for a pair of vegan clogs? You’re in the right place!

Clogs were the must-have style of autumn/winter 22, and as we continue into 2023, that’s not about to change because clogs are a surprisingly versatile piece of footwear. You can wear them with jeans for a casual look or swap to a heeled clog for an elevated dressed-up look. So, whether it’s comfortable clogs or heeled clogs you’re looking for, we’re pleased to say that the it-shoe is here to stay.

Unfortunately, most of the popular clogs on the market aren’t vegan, with brands like Birkenstock using leather and suede in their most popular styles.

But fear not, as we’ve rounded up the best vegan clogs on the market!

Clogs are a type of footwear traditionally made from wood and are known for their classic wooden block heel.

While traditional clogs still exist, modern clogs have kept the wooden base but combine the classic wood style with a leather or faux-leather upper.

While the traditional all wood style of clogs may be vegan, modern brands tend to use animal-based glues or leather uppers, meaning that not all clogs are vegan. Innovations into vegan leathers and the durability of non animal-based alternatives now mean that more and more brands are creating vegan footwear collections that rival leather styles in durability and style.
