Can you be vegan and still wear cowboy boots? Heck yeah, you can! When doing my research, I was happy to find a variety of vegan cowboy boots and western boots for all you compassionate cowgirls out there. I also found a few styles for cruelty-free cowboys, but sadly, there aren’t as many leather-free styles for guys as there are for gals. You’ll find a few styles for men at the end of the post and I’ll be sure to add more as I find them.

To kick things off :o), I’d like to start this vegan cowboy boots guide with a quote from one of my all-time favorite country stars, the grandfather of country rock, Gram Parsons:

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

–Gram Parsons

The History of Cowboy Boots

First, a little history lesson… Cowboy boots date back to the 1600s, when riding boots started to appear in Europe that had “high tops, pointed toes, and 2″ stacked heels,” says ShoeInfo. But where did those 2″ heels originate? Apparently, they were first seen in the 13th century on invading Mongol tribesmen who wore bright red wooden heels on their boots. According to ShoeInfo, “Mongols were consummate horsemen and their easy victories left a mark on European society.”

Since owning and caring for a horse required wealth, and being on horseback placed a person physically above those who were not, people on horseback in high heels became associated with nobility. To this day, we say “well-heeled” to describe a person who is wealthy or aristocratic. Eventually, heeled riding boots made their way to the Americas, quite possibly on the feet of the Conquistadors.

Throughout history, boots were made with animal skin. Thankfully, today we have access to a variety of materials that make durable, warm, and comfortable boots without harming animals.

So, without further ado, here are some sweet faux-leather, faux-suede, and more vegan cowgirl and cowboy boots!
