Green Expert: Got (Eco) Boots?

Got (Eco) Boots? We Found Fall’s Best Bets!

By Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff of

It may be sweltering in most places, but that doesn’t stop us from fixating on the fall fashions that inevitably hit magazines and catalogues this month. You know what that means, don’t you? Boots! Thigh high or ankle length, peep-toe or lace-up, cute boots are the hallmark of a fashionable new season.

But who has time for ecosystem-wreaking leather tanned with chrome? Not us! Our tastes run to the sustainable, and these new boots from Naya, which hit stores mid-month, do not disappoint.

Crafted from chrome-free, veggie-tanned leathers, natural, organic and sustainable fabrics, bamboo and biodegradable latex heels, natural cork and rubber footbeds, nickel-free metal buckles, and outsoles made from upcycled materials, Naya’s new fall boot collection is eco, absolutely.

And cute? Um, yeah. Don’t be surprised if you see us sporting Nayas daily—once the weather cooperates.
