Duchess Kate Stepped Out for a Shopping Trip in These Chic Chelsea Boots


While we obviously love the idea of vegan shoes and have owned many ourselves, the quality is sometimes lacking. While with real leather, you know you’re getting just that — real leather — vegan leather can take many forms and be made of different types of materials. We’ve tried some shoes that simply look cheap, feel cheap and even leave our feet seriously sweating.

That’s why we’re so excited when we find a vegan shoe that’s just as good as its real leather alternative, if not better. If actual royalty is choosing to wear it, after all, we know it can’t really get any better than that. Hence why we’re currently obsessed with these vegan Chelsea boots Duchess Kate recently wore!

Kate was spotted on January 27 leaving department store Peter Jones in Sloane Square in Chelsea, London (see here). She carried a large fabric shopping bag and wore a grey cable-knit Ralph Lauren sweater, blue jeans, a long coat, a face mask and a pair of dark brown booties. Her shoes were quickly identified as the Blundstone Original Vegan Chelsea boots, which we promptly found still available at Zappos!

These pull-on booties, also available in black, not only have the stretchy side goring you can expect on all Chelsea boots, but also logo pull-loops on both the front and back of the ankle for an even easier on and off (and extra style points). They have a rounded toe, a sleek vegan leather upper, a smooth lining and a removable insole. At the bottom you’ll find the durable outsole outfitted with tread for traction!

Reviewers agree that they’re “so happy to have a vegan version” of these iconic boots. Multiple also say they’ve been wearing them “every day, all day” since receiving them. They note how nice they are to wear too, saying they “often have trouble finding comfortable shoes, but [they] couldn’t be happier with these”!

For a fashionable closet, Chelsea boots will always be one of our first recommendations. We know we’re never without at least one pair! They simply elevate any look — even when you’re wearing something as simple as skinny blue jeans, as Kate demonstrated. We love how these Blundstone boots almost have a slight ruggedness to them but would also be totally cute paired up with a pretty dress. They just work. And you don’t have to deal with any laces, zippers or buckles, which is obviously a big plus!

The future of vegan shoes is here with Blundstone, and the Duchess of Cambridge just proved it. Now all we need is a trip to London so we can really shop like her!
