Ladies, the vegan tall boots are in the house! ‘Tis the season for a great pair of mid-calf, knee-high, or higher boots – and there are no longer any sacrifices to be made in terms of style and quality if you insist on forgoing leather and suede. It used to be hard to find a great pair of vegan riding boots, as so many styles were made of leather. No more! Today, there are more choices in vegan-friendly materials than ever before. I looked at hundreds of boots for this post and my research did not disappoint.
There are boots made with vegan leather, faux suede, stretch velvet, eco-friendly microfiber, and more. So whether you’re looking for a tall dress boot for holiday parties, a versatile faux leather riding boot, or a hot, over-the-knee boot that makes your legs go on for days – you will find them here – all the while without harming any critters!
These low heel riding boots by Will’s check all the boxes! They’re vegan, eco-friendly, and made in ethical working conditions.

Adjustable straps at the top ensure you get the right fit, and inside zippers make them easy to put on and take off.
