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. $249.95 per

4 years old now
From Atomic Ned of Storrs, Connecticut on .
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 .
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!
From Brian Block of Gainesville, Florida on .
I wear these boots at least 4 days a week. I have had them about two years.
Most synthetics peel, crack or simply break down after a while. Not these. The toes are scuffed, but they just look broken in, not failing at all. The Vibram soles are solid, and have not peeled away from the boots or had any problems whatsoever. These kick the crap out of my old Garmont Vegan Hikers. These are worth every single penny.
I think these would make it through a full through hike on the AT. Yes, THAT good.
Montrail, Asolo, Vasque, La Sportiva, Scarpa...none are superior to these.
These compare favorably to these: http://www.rei.com/product/694262

I am reporting on my preliminary experience snowshoeing with the Veggie Trekker Mk4. I bought a pair of women's Tubbs Flex Alp snowshoes, which easily and comfortably strapped onto the boots. The straps held firm for a flat terrain hike lasting an hour. I was delighted that my feet stayed warm and dry despite the snowy conditions. I worried that the friction from the straps would unnaturally wear the boots, but they were fine. I intend to do a more challenging snowshoe trail on uneven, rocky wooded paths with a climb of 980 feet this weekend. That should be a better test of the boots with this application. So far, I'm really happy! Plus, I was delighted that the boots didn't require any breaking-in and were comfortable from the start. This was my first time wearing an inflexible sole. After 10 minutes, I habituated to the feel of that, but would say the novice wearer might wonder whether hiking boots should be something in between a running shoe and downhill ski boots.
