Fall is here, so that means boots are BACK! Shopping for vegan boots can be really easy, as long as you know what to look out for. Of course, you want to stay away from leather, suede, fur, sheepskin, and any other material that comes from animals.
The vegan-friendly words you want to look for when buying vegan boots are “synthetic,” “man-made,” “polyurethane” (or “PU”), “faux leather,” “faux suede,” etc.
Lucky for you, I read all the product descriptions of this year’s trendiest boots—so you don’t have to. I present to you: peta2’s Vegan Boot Guide. YAAAS! ?
Low Chelsea Boot
Everyone needs a low Chelsea boot. These are perfect for school, because they’re super-comfy.
Heeled Chelsea Boot
Take it up a notch and wear a higher heel. This 2.5-inch stacked block heel will keep your feet comfortable while adding a couple of inches.
These are a bit of a splurge, but you can’t go wrong with vegan Docs. Dr. Martens are very well-made, durable, and iconic—so these boots will last just about forever.

I feel like ordering a seriously complex Starbucks drink in these boots: “Yes, hi, can I get one grande extra-hot, half-caff, soy, vanilla, peppermint mocha—and hold the whipped cream, please. Thank you!”
Wow, these boots are everything! Wear them with skinny jeans or a cute skort. Just make sure you wear them with confidence. *hair flip*
UGG Look-a-Like Boot
We all know that UGGs are made from sheepskin, and as compassionate humans, we don’t support that ish. Check out these cute, fuzzy boots that look a lot like UGGS—and they’re made without the cruelty.
These booties are perfect for semi-formal occasions. Pair them with your fave cocktail dress and dance the night away.

Do you love animals so much that you just want to become one sometimes? Just me? ?? Well, check out these fun faux-fur boots. With dark-wash jeans and a black long-sleeve top? CUTE!
When in doubt, just check the label. If you see one of the symbols below, you’re good to go—the item was made with vegan materials. ??BUT if you see one of these symbols, put that boot down—it’s NOT vegan! Either of these mean that it’s made of skins. Gross. ?
Remember: If you refuse to wear fur, you should refuse to wear all other animal-derived materials, too. Happy shopping!
