Vegan Boots and Shoes 2019 - Leafy Souls Vegan Blog

At its core, veganism is more than just a diet. It’s also a system of values that is causing more and more people to consider how other products they use – think clothing, home goods, and accessories – are made. Vegan labels have become prolific in grocery stores and on the boxes of your favourite snacks, but there’s less transparency when shopping for clothing and accessories, making the process a little more difficult.

There are plenty of brands making chic, stylish clothing and accessories that also happen to be cruelty-free. And, plenty of your favourite existing brands have started added vegan options to their offerings. To make it easier for you, we rounded up 9 great pairs of boots that are perfect for winter and also happen to be vegan. Whether you’re vegan or not, we think you’ll love – and really want to wear – one of these pairs.


The problem with the leather

Leather is the skin or hides of an animal. It can be made out of a range of animals’ skins such as sheep, lambs, goats, pigs, horses, deer, kangaroos, alligators, crocodiles, elephants, cats, dogs, or snakes. The most common skin used globally is cowhide.

While you might assume that leather is a by-product of the meat and dairy industries, that it is using hides that would otherwise go to waste, unfortunately, this isn’t true.

The leather industry exists in its own right as a very lucrative and highly profitable business and the majority of leather sold in the world today comes from animals that were slaughtered primarily for their skins.

Each year, over a billion animals, are slaughtered for leather. The majority of leather sold in the US and Europe comes from countries such as India and China, where there are no animal welfare laws or, if laws do exist, they are not enforced.

India’s leather industry is responsible for 12.9% of global leather production, equating to an annual production of around three billion square feet of leather. This is used to produce 9% of the world’s footwear.

Most consumers are not aware that leather goods that come from China are often made from the skins of dogs and cats who are routinely tortured and skinned alive. It is estimated that China slaughters around two million cats and dogs each year.
