These rugged hikers are the latest in durable outdoor
footwear from Vegetarian Shoes, and they’re definitely built to
endure all terrains you’ll come across. Made with their
highest-grade synthetic microfibre uppers, you’ll get the
durability and breathability you need for long treks with soft
padded faux suede collar and trim for added appeal. One-piece upper
pattern with bellows tongue keeps moisture and unwanted debris from
entering the boot so you won’t take on any “unwanted baggage” on
your travels. Dual density Vibram soles are the standard for
high-end hiking boots, and you’ll find them here to help you keep
your traction on slippery or harsh surfaces, and they’re designed
to wear very slowly so you don’t need to worry about wearing your
soles out long before the rest of the boots are ready to go.
Riveted D-ring lace fasteners with locking lace hooks keep your
boots secure while making it easy to get them on and off again. The
Veggie Trekker is insulated throughout, and also has a padded
collar, tongue and insole for the best comfort possible. Finally,
these boots are internally waterproofed and have a breathable
Windtex membrane lining that repels wind and water (we do recommend
an external waterproofer such as the Nikwax brand that we sell or
another of your choice to keep as much moisture out as possible).
If you’re looking for the best in vegan hikers, you’ve found them
with the Veggie Trekker! Available in whole Men’s sizes 4 - 14 and
Women’s sizes 5 – 12. Imported from England. $264.99 per

I got these boots because they were vegan and they looked gorgeous. I hike a decent amount, and honestly am happy to rough it in thrift store sneakers and have a great time. That said, these are the most expensive shoes I've ever bought. They were great for a few months, but soon the waterproof coating began peeling and the recommended waterproof material I put on the boots didn't last very long. I still wear them every so often (the soles are in perfect shape some 2 years later), but several friends swear by Merrel and Patagonia boots that cost half as much, weigh less, and (I think, definitely fact check) are vegan, as well. I'm not salty, but won't buy these again.
Really nice, comfy
From Paula Lecht of Northern California, California on 9/22/2014.
I just received these today and was overall very impressed. I can see that they could easily become my most comfortable boots. They are just a little too big though even after ordering a size down and trying them with various socks and insoles so I may return them for a smaller size. I wonder if this may be the case for women for this shoe. I dearly love them though and am very pleased that I chose to buy them.
4 years old now
From Atomic Ned of Storrs, Connecticut on 10/24/2013.
Have had these just about four years now and the Vibram sole has worn out before the top. Definitely buy a gel insole but that's with any boot. Backpacked with these 3.5 year old boots this summer up on the Georgian Bay and had to carry a second pack, (yes two packs, 70 lbs?) over wet rocky terrain and they were great support. Would love a vegetarian hiking boot with a Norwegian welt but barring this company making boots like that, these are the boots I'm buying next.

I bought these boots for my climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro, and they were great! Comfortable, very little breaking in needed, kept my feet dry the whole time. Would definitely recommend.
Best boot on the market...
From Anonymous of Portsmouth, New Hampshire on 5/31/2012.
After six months of daily wear with occasional hikes and work in rocky/wet settings, I can confidently say this is the highest-quality boot (vegan or otherwise) I've ever owned. The synthetic leather breaks in nicely and the waterproof liner seems to stay, well, waterproof. (This concept of durable waterproofing has been lost on many other boot manufacturers, apparently...) The insole leaves a bit to be desired, but that's an easy fix. The sizing is spot-on. Not cheap, but worth every penny!
