Buy Vegan Leather Boots
As veganism has evolved past the cliche of being exclusive ‘hippie’ or ‘punk’ cultures there has been a growing need for vegan alternatives for ‘everyday’ Australians – including tradies. Vegan leather boots were barely an option ten years ago unless you were willing to pay over $400 for shoes that may or may not fall apart after a few weeks of use. Veganism in Australia is at an all-time high – even surpassing Harry Potter on Google trends. There is now a growing supply of vegan work boots Australia has to offer to the ever growing Australian vegan market.

Finding the right vegan shoes online
Well days are gone when you used to wear only gray or brown synthetic leather shoes. Now, most of the vegan shoes online have cool color and latest designs. But, before proceeding you need to know something.
There are two categories of vegan shoes.
These shoes are used by the people who are against animal cruelty and refuse to wear anything that comes from wool, silk, shearling etc. the vegan companies make shoes for these people out of the respect for the animals.
These shoes are usually made with synthetic leather, in most cases, these are the cheap shoes that are found at places like K-Mart or Target. These shoes are less expensive for multiple reasons that we will explore.
Why Do Intentionally Vegan Boots Cost More?
The intentionally vegan shoes are expensive compared to the unintentional ones. Reasons for this can include:
- Most brands of Vegan Boots are fair trade. Not only do they not exploit animals- they don’t exploit humans.
- They don’t cut corners. These shoes are designed to be durable and fit for work. Not fall apart after each use.
- These are not multi-billion dollar companies. They do not commission shoes to be made by the hundreds of thousands. They are designed in-house and self-funded.
If you are not ready to pay for the extra prices for boots that are both high-quality and being cruelty-free to animals (and humans) then you still have the option to buy unintentionally vegan shoes. Unfortunately, these shoes are usually cheap because of the conditions of which they are made (underpaid workers). The quality is also usually lacking and the boots will usually break quite easily – especially if exposed to water.
The cheaper the boots are, the more likely the leather is to be faux. This does not mean vegan. Many of the dyes that are used can contain animal products. The best tip is to ask the manufacturer, but when you are dealing with large Australian retailers, it is not uncommon for them to alternate manufacturers based on best production prices.
However, do not for get to check the product details as well because sometimes some shoes will have leather accents. or tongues
