That’s it for now!  But if you’re wondering why you don’t see anything from famous western boot brands like Ariat, Canada West Boots, Corral, or Laredo, it’s because they’ve informed us that they don’t have any cowgirl boots that are free from animal-derived materials and ingredients. Boo-urns.

If you’d like to help change that, all you have to do is ask them to make vegan offerings.

If enough people ask, they’ll see the market demand is there, and might choose to offer vegan products.

If you reach out to them and they reply, please let us know what they say!
