Hello fellow vegans, I have been a vegan for at least 35 years and 1/3 of that time 100% raw. We have a local potluck once a month and they have a book and video lending library there. After watching "Earthlings I have gotten rid of all leather items except for my boots. Where can I get the same quality vegan boots as the Danner backpacking boots I now have? They must be able to handle rugged all year and all weather use. thanks Alan
These boots are great. I've been vegan for quite awhile and have always been in search of a strongly made boot. I work in construction and these hold up. Originally designed as a combat boot, they breath and are comfortable. Even have a vibram sole. Garmont also makes(or at least used to) a hiking boot with a very similar design and less military looking.
The one I linked is made in both black and tan. Be careful if you look for these boots elsewhere. For years it seemed like they were a vegan boot and then the tags stopped saying synthetic leather, so this site has them special ordered from Garmont. They are not cheap, but last a lot longer than any other boot I've tried.
Hope this helps!
