Can you be a vegan and still wear cowboy boots? Heck yeah, you can! I was very happy upon doing my research to find more cool styles of vegan cowboy boots, faux leather western-style boots, faux suede cowgirl boots – whatever you want to call them as long as they’re not made from someone else’s skin – than I ever thought existed. The times they are a changin’!

The caveat for this post, however, is that I’m still searching for the vegan cowboy boots that are also made of recycled and/or more eco-friendly materials. I almost didn’t write this post because I couldn’t find such boots. But I also know – there are people who read my blog who are not super eco-conscious, and I know they wear traditional cowboy boots made of leather.  (You know who you are!) This post is for them and to let them know – you can find great cowboy boots that are also cruelty-free.  (And, of course, this article is for the vegans who just want to wear cowboy boots.)

For a little more info on why I think leather needs to cease existence immediately, check out my post “Vegan Shoes that are Kicking Leather to the Curb.”

To kick things off (yes, my puns are always intended), I would like to start the UniGuide vegan cowboy boots guide with a quote by one of my favorite country stars:

“We don’t wear sequins because we think we’re great. We wear them because we think sequins are great.” – Gram Parsons
