Cotton wool is dubbed the ‘dirtiest crop in the world’ (Photo: Getty Images)

Boots is replacing its own-brand cotton products with organic alternatives in a bid to help shoppers become more sustainable.

The pharmacy sells more than 10 million units of its own-brand cotton products in its beauty and baby ranges each year.

But now he will only source GOT (Global Organic Textiles Standard) cotton.

And being more eco-friendly won’t cost customers a penny, as prices will stay the same.

Surprisingly, non-organic cotton wool has been dubbed the “world’s dirtiest crop” as it accounts for 16% of global insecticide use, more than any other crop.

Traditional cotton production also requires significant amounts of water, so it depletes local water supplies, impacts wildlife and affects farmers’ health.

GOTS certification means that the cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and in fact preserves the health of the soil and the environment.

This supports cotton farmers, allowing them to grow additional crops alongside cotton, such as food, which they can use themselves or as a source of income.

The move is Boots’ latest commitment to sustainability after pledging to remove all wipes containing plastic fibers from its shelves by the end of 2022.

The chain has also removed all unnecessary plastic from its range of Christmas gifts.

John Sweeney, Head of Product Sustainability at Boots, said: “This is a really important decision.

“It takes into account the whole supply chain and ultimately benefits cotton farmers, as well as their families and the local community.

“What’s even better is that we do this at no additional cost to our customers, helping to make organic cotton easily accessible to anyone who wants to make this lasting change for the good of others and the planet. “

Growing organic cotton can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide a number of other environmental, health and social benefits.

For customers who want to be even more sustainable in their habits, Boots offers a “Be More” edition on boots.com featuring over 400 eco-friendly products to help customers make sustainable choices more easily.

For nearly 170 years, White’s has been making some of the finest work boots known to man. The brand’s flagship model 610 Last is indicative of the Spokane-based outfit’s propensity for crafting heritage-quality footwear. There’s no doubt that fellow West Coast native Taylor Stitch turned to White’s for his latest heritage boot.

Photo: Taylor Point | White’s Boots

Earning a reputation of its own in just a decade and a half, Taylor Stitch of San Francisco has perfected the art of imbuing an edgy mood into age-old silhouettes. The brand has pledged that its new Backcountry boot in whiskey brown will be its “most capable boot yet”, built on the 610 Last and made entirely in Spokane where it is fitted and pressed in by hand.

Photo: Taylor Point | White’s Boots

Using Seidel leather and White’s signature stitched construction, the Backcountry boot will skate over time and the Arch-ease leather upper and midsole will mold to your foot as you wear it. Other features include a Vibram lug sole, gusseted tongue with embossed names of both brands, oxidized metal eyelets and speed hooks, and a fully resealable bottom.

Taylor Stitch and White’s American-made Backcountry boot is currently available for $698 as part of a crowdfunding pre-sale campaign.

Much like opera gloves, thigh high boots take over the timeline. They cover so much, yet reveal such an enticing amount. Most celebrities styled them with clothes on, but Dua Lipa managed to pull them off with nothing but the statement boot. The pop star shared a photo of herself in an Instagram photo carousel from her recent trip to Japan and the post really took off.

In the photo, Dua is wearing tight black vinyl over the knee boots with a pointed toe and stiletto heel. Her position makes it hard to see the bottoms, but she appears to be wearing a white top with a sheer black overlay. She had on pink eyeshadow and black eyeliner, and let her long, tousled hair flow over one shoulder.

The artist captioned the post “japan divers” and shared some photos of meals, drinks, herself strolling the streets and stunning views of Mount Fuji. She’s posted plenty of footage from her summer and fall travels, but she’s now back to work. Dua Lipa has just kicked off the final leg of her Future Nostalgia concert tour going on this week in Australia without missing a beat.

She kicked off in Sydney, Australia, and wore both opera gloves and thigh-high boots that blended seamlessly into her bright blue bodysuit.

She managed to enjoy some tourist activities while inland, sharing some snaps from her trip where she cuddles a koala and hand-feeds a baby kangaroo. There aren’t many places where you can have such close encounters with marsupials, so even big stars should seize the opportunity when it presents itself.

Bella Hadid is undoubtedly the model of the moment, from fronting campaigns for brands like Balenciaga, Fendi and Swarovski, to closing Paris Fashion Week with a clothing moment sprayed viral at the Coperni Spring/Summer 2023 show (inspiring subsequently a multitude of Halloween costumes). And when it comes to her personal wardrobe, the model also serves up nonstop looks. As any avid fan of Bella’s style knows, she can’t get enough of one hot item right now: the vintage Prada chunky-soled boots.

Bella can’t get enough of her Prada boots.

Raymond room

The combat boots in question – from Prada’s Sport 2004 collection – are knee-high, in black Nappa leather and feature a durable lug sole designed to stomp in style. Although somewhat rare, the shoes have appeared on a number of luxury resale sites (including Vestiaire, Depop and The RealReal), but are selling out quickly due to a spike in demand (likely due to Bella, who has reportedly single-handedly raised the resale prices of Tom Ford-era Gucci dresses since her cut-out moment on the Cannes red carpet earlier this year).

In vintage from head to toe.

Peter Suu

Clever, but still utterly cool.

Marc Piasecki

Since January, Bella has been spotted wearing her favorite vintage boots with a myriad of looks. The model has found ingenious ways to style them so they always look fresh, whether dressing them up with denim skirts and casual midi dresses on a lazy day, or amp up the glamor with a tailored shorts suit for a formal event in Paris. She even recently went skydiving wearing them, proving that they work as hard as she does.

Mark Howe, industry veteran and managing director of Google EMEA agency sales, will enter “semi-retirement” at the end of this year.

Howe, who has had an illustrious career in television and at Google for the past 41 years, said he wanted to retire to spend more time with his family.

In an email shared with the media, Howe said the decision to “hang up my boots” was “tough and emotional.”

He said: “[It] was not a quick decision. In fact, as a number of you know, it’s been planned for some time now, pretty much since my wife was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Then (the) Covid lockdown was never a time to leave without being able to say goodbye in person, but rest assured my wife is now in strong remission so we can look positively to the future.

“Having had what I think will be quite a long career in television and at Google, which I have loved, I hope to leave a positive legacy and fond memories. I have made many lifelong friends and I would like to think that I have made a positive contribution to the businesses and industry that I have represented.

Howe leaves a legacy in television and builds Google’s ad selling proposition in EMEA.

His career in advertising sales began in the 1980s in the ITV Yorkshire, Tyne Tees and Thames TV franchises – a period he described as “a blurry one”.

In the 1990s Howe joined the multi-channel TV industry at Flextech and sales house IDS, before in 2006 he went through at least eight interviews to land the top job in UK sales at Google UK.

At Google, Howe held several leadership positions, including National Sales Manager and Head of Agency Sales in EMEA. He spent over a decade launching and growing Google UK’s agency sales business, which reflected in various markets.

In 2010, Howe (photo below during a reception) predicted some of the challenges the industry would face, such as questioning agency business models and disruption from digital media across the ecosystem.

In 2016, Howe handed over the reins of Google’s UK agency sales to Peter Cory and Matt Bush, as he assumed the role of EMEA agency sales manager he holds today. A year later, Bush took over the running of the operation alone.

In addition to his day job, Howe has been an active member of industry bodies, holding several board positions including the IAB, the Advertising Association, the European Advertising Standards Alliance and to Nabs, and has supported Wacl, Movember, The Media Trust and NSPCC Childline.

“I learned a lot about myself and the full spectrum of a multi-channel advertising business, helped develop many careers, mostly positively I hope, and most importantly, had a ton of fun , which what’s left of my liver can attest to,” he said.

“There are too many people I could thank for their friendship and support over the years, so I won’t try to name them, but I hope you know who you are. Just so you know, I have no plans to take on another full-time role, although I’m sure I’ll find it hard not to get a bit involved in the music industry. publicity that brought me so much.

There is something provocative, but also elegant, in waders. This is probably why, even if it is sometimes difficult for the sport, since in the early 1960s, when Balenciaga’s fall collection featured a tall boot by Mancini that covered just the kneethe popularity of what French designers call Shorts never wavered.

Yet, many women over 50 prefer not to invest in these trendy shoes as they are mistakenly considered inappropriate for their age. What we often forget is that most of the time when it comes to updating our look, all we need to do is choose a style that flatters our body type.

Whether you opt for leather or suede, flat sole or block heel, high heel or stiletto version, in the end, it’s all about finding the right proportions. And while they may seem intimidating to wear at first, they’re pretty much like any other pair of boots you already own. They just hit higher on your legwhich is very practical when it is cool outside.

These boots are also quite versatile. They can be worn for dressy occasions with dresses and dresses or everyday with pants and skirts to add a fun element.

The general rule is to find the perfect pair of boots that sit comfortably above the knee without cutting into the back of your knees or falling down. If they’re sitting at an awkward height, it may feel awkward or less flattering.

If the idea of ​​wearing thigh-high boots in your fifties is just beginning, here are some tips to follow to avoid the Pretty Woman look.

Keep it simple and classy

In general, avoid wearing them with bare legs and instead pay attention to the length of your pants or skirts in relation to the top of your boots (too big of a gap can make you look shorter and a little clingy).

Also, avoid plastic-looking fabrics and instead focus your efforts on keeping the color scheme consistent with your overall appearance to elongate your figure. And when it comes to adapting, choose ones that are a little tighter around the legs as they have more structure so they stay upright and fall less.

For the heel, you ideally want to buy shoes that suit a more casual way of dressing and are comfortable at the same time, so the lower ones are perfect.

The best way to rock your boots above the knee at any age is to go for a flat 2 inch heel height to ensure you look more chic or go for a flat and relaxed fit. a thick sole for a more casual style. provide you with both comfort and added height, and because of their versatility, you can wear them anywhere from a morning business meeting to an evening event. said stylist Rebecca Thompson.

But what if you’re petite?

Unless you’re a model, thigh high boots can be a little tricky to put on. The fact that they cover well over half of your leg means they can dominate your lower half. This draws the eyes downward and creates weight on your lower legs, making you look smaller than you are.

For little women, Thompson recommends trying a boot with a wedge heel or a low-heeled stiletto heel that best suits your daily routine and wardrobe..

Avoid baggy styles and stick to slimmer, streamlined boots. Try pairing them with a sweater dress for a fabulous day-to-night look. Remember to have an inch or two of skin showing to avoid looking overwhelmed by the fabric.“, she continued.”Also remember never to fold down the boot which can quickly become a pirate“.

Winning combinations

A stylish combination is pairing the boots with skinny pants or leggings, a long sweater or blouse and your favorite cropped coat.

Skinny jeans tucked into over the knee boots with a tie front top and a leather jacket is a classic fall outfit – says the fashion designer Tan France -. For a winter outfit idea, pair black suede OTK boots with opaque tights or leggings and a turtleneck tucked into a mini skirt. Add a fluffy or wool beret for a retro-chic touch“.

But you can also wear them under a long flowing dress or a midi skirt for a bohemian look. Even better if there’s a side slit that lets you show off your shoes with every step you take.

If you love the bohemian look, wear heeled boots with a full skirt 2-3 inches below the knee and pair them with a peasant blouse.», suggests Sue Heman, a member of Nordstrom Canadian Advisory Board and one Barley Poppy Ambassador. “Accessorize with a chunky necklace made of natural materials like wood and leather to complete the look“”.

Even a pencil skirt with a structured blazer and dark tights will work with thigh high boots if you’re looking to achieve a sophisticated look.

Whichever combination you go with, one thing is certain: knee-high boots have a lot of main character energy. So what are you waiting for? Choose your waders by gray, brown and cognac (the new “it” colors) and in soft suede varieties to start enjoying the endless possibilities to stand out from the crowd. Your confidence boost could just be a pair of brand-new cycling shorts.

After the COVID pandemic gave South Philadelphia music venue Boot & Saddle the boot in 2020, the popular venue with the neon boot out front on South Broad Street has stood empty.

Not for long.

Ars Nova Workshop announced earlier this month plans to open a “new home” in the former Boot & Saddle bar at 1131 S. Broad Street, near Ellsworth Street. They will call it solar myth.

The move made sense for the Ars Nova workshop, which claims it “raises the profile and pushes the boundaries of jazz and contemporary music,” according to the Philadelphia-based band’s website.

“This is a place where we have welcomed the public many times before, and we are proud to now make it ours,” the organization wrote in its announcement.

On Tuesday, the organization gained momentum for the plan with a Facebook post teasing the venue’s upcoming opening.

“In partnership with Solar Myth – a new cafe, wine bar and listening room set to fully open on-site in November 2022 – Ars Nova will have exclusive access to the venue formerly known as Boot & Saddle,” wrote the group on Facebook. .

Solar myth? What will this whole project entail?

“This new establishment will be a great new meeting place – morning coffee and pastries, natural wines and amazing music to listen to all day long,” wrote Ars Nova Workshop.

The band promises to “provide audiences with access to a constant stream of music we know and love”.

What kind of shows can customers expect?

“We’re already booking some amazing acts for fall and winter 2022, and dreaming of multi-night engagements, residencies and more,” the band wrote.

Music fans don’t have to wait long to get in.

There are already a few concerts planned for Solar Myth, including Trio-Convulsant Avec Folie à Quatre by Trevor Dunn on October 27, QWANQWA on November 15 and Bitchin Bajas on December 6 and 7.

Sinking her feet in the sand, Sydney Sweeney posed for some photos of Sahara Desert outfits that she posted to her Instagram today. The dreamy outfit the “Euphoria” star wore was only amplified by the unreal background captured in each frame.

Basking in the North African sun, Sweeney wore cream-coloured knee-length shorts that were belted to hold him in place. Plus, “The White Lotus” actress rocked a beige tank top that she neatly tucked into her oversized pants. The comfortable styling only added to the chic character of the whole thing. On his head, Sweeney wore a hat but discarded the handy prop for his other photos.

The standout item Sweeney wore for his trip to the sand dunes was white combat boots. The rugged style featured chunky rubber soles, reliable tread and a chunky silhouette built for serious adventures.

Originally designed to be worn by soldiers on the battlefield, combat boots are utility footwear created for foot protection, ankle support and grippy tread. Classically made of black leather, combat boots were adopted by counterculture movements in the 1980s and 1990s, including the goth, punk, grunge, and heavy metal scenes.

Sweeney often gravitates toward shoes that are stylish to comfortable and sporty. The “White Lotus” actress can often be seen in slingback heels, strappy sandals and pointy-toe pumps adorned with whimsical bows, sparkling crystals or PVC details that further elevate her ensembles.

When Sweeney isn’t performing, “The Handmades Tale” star can be found partnering with some of the biggest names in fashion. The most recent brand to partner with the actress is Prada’s sister brand Miu Miu, featuring her in its “Character Study” series along with famous faces like Emily Ratajkowski and Demi Singleton.

The temperature has has finally started to fall, and if you’re shopping for a new pair of rocker boots this season, it’s easier than ever to find a perfectly fitting pair to keep you warm in style. But if you’re looking for the best vegan leather boots to buy online, more and more brands have started offering options that are sustainably made and better for the environment, without missing out on style.

Vegan leather boots can appear under other names like synthetic leather, synthetic leather, polyurethane (or PU leather) and leatherette. But the goal is the same: no animal parts or products are used, resulting in a more sustainably made pair of shoes. Different brands have different approaches, as well as how far they will go to be completely animal-free, as some still use renewable resources like wool where no animals are harmed. Looking for a new pair? Consider this your new boot buying guide for the year.

More from Rolling Stone

Vegan Leather Boots Buying Guide

Here’s what to consider when looking for new vegan or leather-free fall and winter shoes.

Material: The leather is tough, but it’s also heavy, and on long hikes your feet will feel it. But it also affects your entire body in a chain reaction, from ankles to neck. Synthetic or vegan leather boots are noticeably lighter, and while both have varying strengths and weaknesses, faux leather can still hold up to normal everyday use.

Conditions: This is an important element when choosing the right boot – where will you be using it and in what types of weather? A boot that can handle plodding through the city on snowy winter walks is very different from icy and off-grid hiking. Unless they’re lined with Gore-Tex, they’re probably not waterevidence, so it’s always best to check. Vegan and synthetic leather boots tend to be best for mild autumns and winters.

Water resistance level: Another buying factor to consider when shopping for the best vegan leather boots is whether your boots will be fully submerged in water, such as crossing rivers and streams. While waterproof leather can keep your feet dry, you’ll need to deal with the moisture in genuine leather right away, drying it quickly and properly. Vegans and synthetics, on the other hand, can avoid this completely and continue even after getting soaked. Check ahead to make sure your boots have a sturdy, water-resistant design. Our picks in this guide can handle wet conditions overall.

Breathability: Leather boots don’t tend to breathe as easily as other materials, and this can prove to be a real problem, especially in hot weather, leading to things like sweaty feet and wet socks. Vegan leather tends to be more breathable in extreme cold conditions, so keep that in mind when shopping for your next pair.

The Best Vegan Leather Boots

We picked our favorite pairs of vegan leather and faux leather boots to rock this season and into the colder months.

Inside, they keep feet warm and dry with their microfleece lining, providing a cushioned foam footbed that’s comfortable with every step. They are stiff and sturdy and hold up well in rain or snow. And when you’ve finally used them up, the company can recycle them into gaming materials.

Kamik has been making boots for over a century. These boots are not only 100% synthetic, but are designed to retain heat to -25 degrees Fahrenheit and feature 200g Thinsulate insulation. There’s room inside for extra thick socks, and traction on the rubber soles remains stable in slippery conditions. In addition to creating this excellent vegan leather boot, the Canadian company’s factories are also hydro-powered, relying on smaller amounts of fossil fuels over time.

These are armed for colder temperatures and can plow through snow, slush and mud while keeping your feet dry. The two-tone duck-foot design and cozy fleece lining inside are super comfortable, and the smooth, all-vegan leather upper locks in extra warmth, slipping moisture from the rubber outsole.
