"Does anyone know if it is okay to wear your sea turtle boots to another country? I have a wedding that I need to attend overseas and want to wear my sea turtle boots to it. There was a guy told me that they took his boots away at the airport but there is also people that went through custom just fine. Have any of you ever done it before? Sea turtle? Pangolin?"

For the U.S., the importation of all products made from sea turtles is forbidden. In addition, depending on the country you are going to, it may be forbidden to bring in or take out sea turtle products (you need to contact the foreign countries embassy here in the U.S. for each country's rules). You can get all the U.S. import restrictions on leathers from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Their contact info (as well as general customs rules) is here:

https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/go/customs.html

In short, don't do it. Keep them here where you can enjoy them.
