I’ve started and stopped this post about a thousand times. The thing is, I’m trying to find a way to write about a pair of super dope shoes without preaching. Ok, maybe this will work. I’m just gonna barf it up in quick succinct points:
I don’t eat meat.
I really don’t want this planet to burn, drown, and/or die.
I can't live with myself knowing animals are being tortured.
Andddd there you have it! The reason why I’m telling you this is because I struggle with these feelings when it comes to fashion. Now look, if you went in my closet you’d for sure find leather pieces. It’s either vintage or stuff I’ve had before my animal empathy kicked into high gear.... because the other side of this story is I also don’t want to contribute to waste, so throwing stuff out doesn’t seem right to me either.
The moral of this story is I'm flawed as f-ck. But how I’ve come to reconcile this moving forward is to just do my best. And that means making sure that when there is a great animal-friendly option, to go HAM on it. Which brings me to the point of this entire post because I need to tell you about my new favorite Chelsea boots!!!!!
As you can probably guess by the threading they are indeed Dr Martens and yes people, they are VEGAN. The brand has branched out into the world of animal-friendly shoes and have come up with a great array of options. Seriously, you would never be able to tell that these aren't leather. They look and feel like the same asskickers they've always been. They wear in like a dream, are comfortable as hell and are 100% guilt-free. You can still look fly without inflicting pain. That's a win/win in my opinion.
Check out the entire collection here and Lainey, these chrome boots have your name all over them.
