Growing up on a southern farm, I’ve known and loved many cowboy boots. My current pair of Dingos (which I leave at my dad’s house for when I visit) are caked with mud and scarred with scratches. I even fought a forest fire in those boots. They’re like old friends.
But they’re not exactly the kind of boot that you want to pair with a denim skirt to wear on a spring afternoon. You know, the “chic but rugged” look that is so super cool.
I was idly browsing around looking at boots today when I found a pair that I fell for. Hard. And what’s even better is that these boots, made by Green Bees, are eco friendly.
Green Bees is a super cool company that makes boots and sandals out of vegetable tanned leather. They use zero formaldehyde, and their soles are made using recycled tires.
The boots I’m currently in love with are the brown Thencha boot, which you can see below…
This boot just screams to be paired with a summer dress and cowboy hat. Can’t you see it?
I wish Green Bees had more information about their eco friendly practices on their site. There’s very little information to be found about this small company…they were profiled on ecoFabulous back in October, but that’s about it. I don’t even know where they’re based, or what else they’re doing to lower their impact on the environment. But I’d sure like to know!
What do you think? Are you in love with these boots? Do you have a pair? Let me know!
