Believe it or not, November is here, which means that boot season is in full swing. Over-the-knee, riding boots, booties—we’ll take them all. Boots are one of our favorite types of shoes because they effortlessly combine three things: comfort, style, and versatility. Throw on a pair of boots with any outfit—a flowy fall dress, jeans and a sweater…you name it, boots will complement it. They’re also among the longest-lasting items in your closet, wearable from fall through early spring. Basically, what we’re saying is that boots are a staple we all need in our closets (and on our feet).
The only thing that makes us love a pair of boots more is when they’re ethically sourced. Vegan fashion is steadily becoming more popular, and we’re all about this trend. Plus, vegan boots are far more affordable than real leather shoes, so you’re helping out your wallet by opting for animal-friendly footwear. We rounded up 13 of our favorite vegan boots for you to shop below.
