Looking for a pair of stylish vegan leather boots this season? In this guide, I’m sharing a list of 30 vegan shoe brands that offer a collection of premium faux-leather boots for women and men.
What are vegan leather boots made of?
Simply put, vegan leather is made from any other material that did not come from animals. Vegans avoid materials like animal-based leather, suede, wool, and silk.
Vegan leather is usually a synthetic material made from a type of PVC or PU but we’re also seeing more innovative and sustainable materials being used today like pineapple leather (Piñatex) and leather made from grapes or recycled materials.
So, note that not all vegan leather is created equally. If you’re looking for vegan leather boots made with sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing practices, I encourage you to always check the brands’ website for more information.
Vegan Boots Brands
All of the shoe brands listed below are 100% vegan with the exception of Dr. Martens and Stella McCartney. I decided to add Dr. Martens because they have some of the best high-quality, built-to-last vegan leather boots, but note they do sell other shoes made with real animal leather. As for Stella McCartney, all of her shoes are vegan but some of the apparel and clothing she designs are made with sustainable wool, cashmere, or peace silk.
