Hi, after advice really. I have been vegan for almost 2 years now and oving it. I am a prison officer and am required to wear a leather utility belt, boots etc and wondered if there was a vegan site where I could order stuff for work. Many thanks in advance.

The belt should last for years. No reason to hurry and replace it. but keep on the lookout for canvas or nylon "web" belts that might work. They might not be listed as vegan. And some do use a little leather as trim. but a good web belt is what I think you should be looking for. IMHO, they make a lot more sense than the traditional braided leather belt that is part of so many uniforms.

I guess what kind of boots are required is important. Steel-toed? how high? Soles?

Anyway, for years and years, Doc Martens was the only vegan shoes available. and they still provide a really good variety of vegan workbooks.

Excellent, thank you. My main issue are the pouches I have to wear on my belt. They are all leather and I cant seem to find canvas ones , or any other type.
