• These faux-nubuck Bourgeois Boheme desert boots are a bit sleeker, and have more of a narrow toe than the Vegetarian Shoes versions I wrote about back in May. Desert boots were originated for utilitarian military purposes in Cairo during World War II as an alternative to stiff, hot, and heavy army boots. Sustainably leather-free, $103 at bboheme.com
