Labor Day has come and gone and pumpkin spice is starting to infiltrate everything. It can only mean one thing: fall has arrived. That means it’s time to put away the sandals (or wear them with socks) and update your wardrobe with a new pair of boots. And for those of us who prefer to keep our footwear cruelty-free, we’re on the hunt for vegan boots in the season’s newest trends.
Whether you call it vegan leather, faux leather, PVC or leather-look, going cruelty-free no longer means sacrificing style. Thanks to designers like Stella McCartney, who pioneered luxury vegan leather, it’s finally chic to go faux. From motorcycle boots and over-the-knee styles to classic tall boots and even sock boots, there are plenty of gorgeous — and affordable — cruelty-free options this season.
