Purchased these boots for my daughter for her Christmas birthday! She loves them and they aren't just for show. Has worn them on hikes and they hold up well, look cute when not hiking, clean up easily. She wears a US size 5 1/2 so sized down, but they are still a bit big. She wears thick socks so they are fine, but if ordering for a US size keep in mind they run a bit bigger than our traditional sizing.
These shoes look nice, they're comfortable, and I get compliments on them all the time. I've had my pair for nearly a year now and they also still look brand new, which is more than I can say for some real leather shoes I've had which got worse scuffs and had stitching come loose on, because the construction on these seems to be higher quality. They feel and look like they should cost more than they do. I got chestnut and the color is beautiful.
The absolute best hiking boots. It is beyond hard to find good vegan hiking boots and these for the bill in ever way. So comfortable. I never had to break them in. They breath well and have great ankle support. I haven't noticed any wear so far and they keep my feet nice and dry. They are worth every penny. If you are second guessing buying them-JUST DO IT!
The quality of the shoe is very good, but when I first pulled them out of the box I realized the toe was rather large and blunt, which is definitely not my preference for a snappy looking dress shoe. I would give the shoe a 3-star rating if it were not for the high quality of the shoe.
For reference, when my aunt saw them she said, "Oh no! They look like clown shoes." Additionally, other have commented that they look big on my feet, whereas the inner dimensions fit perfectly snug with my foot.
Overall I would recommend these shoes to the those who don't care so much about the look of the shoe and are looking for something that will last a long time.
I was fortunate to purchased the Goodyear Welt Chelsea Boot in a brown suede when they were available, which are probably the best pair of shoes I've ever owned. The quality was amazing and I've gotten countless compliments wearing them. So if you're looking for a more stylish shoe then I would highly recommend the Chelsea Boot as an alternative. They can be dressed up in formal attire or dressed down with jeans. They're great! I would definitely buy another pair whenever they wear out. The monks? Wouldn't purchase again personally.
I've had these shoes for nearly a year now, and they still look wonderful even after intensive wear. I do agree with the other review in that the sizes might be a little off (I'm a 9.5 and ordered a 10, which turned out to be too big) so perhaps round down a half size when ordering. I still get compliments on these shoes even though I've worn them a great deal in the last year, and people seem surprised when I say they're vegan. The black isn't as striking as it was when they came out of the box, probably owing the sun, but the color is still plenty dark for my liking. I'm hoping to continue wearing these for another 2 or 3 years at least.
Great belt! Had ordered in Australia for my son's birthday in May, four months later they hadn't sent it. i cancelled the order and within 10 days of ordering through Will's Vegan Store
Will be ordering again for our needs!
Thank you Will's.
I've worn these for over a year for regular hikes in rocky terrain. They provide great support and have sturdy soles, and at the same time are light and breathable. After a year they show little wear and no deterioration. I haven't worn them in wet conditions, but in the desert they are ideal for sandy and rocky areas, scrambling over boulders and walking on arroyos. Many times I've returned home to find these boots have protected me from cholla cactus balls, a common hazard in the Mojave, and I carefully pull out the needles, glad that they never penetrate the upper to get to my feet. These are the most reliable and most guilt-free hiking boots I've ever owned.
I liked these right away! And I was so pleased to find vegan boots that aren't styled for super-hippies! (not that there's anything wrong with that). I went with these because of their treads - they seemed like a good bet for grip on slippery days. I got them in early fall, and then accidentally wore them every day, straight through the winter and spring. I live in Canada, so there's a fair bit of snow and wetness. They survived getting soaked through over and over, and provided some grip on the ice, and when they dried out they still looked totally fine - no salt or water stains. After punishing them so much, the only thing that's gone wrong is inside the curve of the heels, a hard part has popped out of the inner lining, which rubs against my heel - but I'm sure that can be fixed, and otherwise, they're faaaaaaaantastic.
I bought these shoes to wear to a wedding. They looked awesome and were comfortable to wear. The packaging was excellent and shipping was fast!
I wasn’t sure what vegan shoes would be like, and I’m pleased to say that they’re TERRIFIC. The quality, construction and fit are wonderful, and now having them for over a year I can say the durability is as well. Truly quality shoes.
These boots are just perfect! They're comfortable, warm and beautiful. Slightly on the bigger side but that means I can wear thick socks with them.
We love our boos. My wife and I bought and received matching waterproof hiking boots. Neither of us have any complaints about comfort or durability problems since we’ve worn these boots many times. I even chased mini-my boots when playing BiG dodge-ball with them (no donkeys hurt or even touched during those dodge-ball attempts). Never sore or itchy after wearing these boots. Next test will be hiking some hills and low mountains this coming fall. So, therefore, 5-stars for these boots!
Absolutely love the look and feel of these boots. They're so comfy I never want to take them off. Have had them over a year and wear them all through autumn and winter.
Wore these all winter and love them. The heel height is perfect for both casual and more formal events. The inside is very soft and comfortable. The only issue is that the heel has started to wear down slightly on one side, but otherwise these have held up nicely.
These boots are really comfortable and great to hike in. I get a crazy amount of compliments on them. People are shocked they’re not real suede. Even got a friend to buy a pair. I bought the gray, my friend bought the blue and they are gorgeous.
I love these boots! They are so comfortable and were very easy to break in. My feet stay dry when hiking in them. I also think they look cool so will just wear them casually on occasion. Great quality, I've had mine for over a year now and they still look pretty new.
These boots are fantastic, and I have recommended them to others looking for warm, water resistant boots, regardless of whether they're looking for non-leather. I wore these walking around the neighborhood in St. Louis for a couple weeks before taking them on a trail, as they were a little stiff, but they really didn't need much help. Took these to Colorado for some below-freezing summits, and they were perfect! Added chains on a couple of hikes (those things are brilliant!) and felt pretty well unstoppable. They're warm, comfy, sturdy, and still look good. Great purchase, as are most all our Will's shoes!
I bought them when living in Canada, to be ready for icy weather. And they performed as promised, keeping me warm even with not-exactly-thick socks! Insulation worked great, and the sole had a good grip (but as always, be careful on the ice). After several hours in very deep snow they did need some drying, but I kinda expected that. Very comfortable, they didn't pinch or squeeze. I'm a 39 1/2 EU size, bought a size 40, it was the right choice. The boots worked well on rainy days too, and I kept using them until warmer weather arrived, they go nice with jeans. Will test durability with the next cold season. I'm a satisfied customer once again - I only wish they'd been available in my favourite brown when I bought them, but grey looks good too.
I absolutely love these boots. They're stylish but functional, they're well insulated. Easy to clean. All around best winter boots I've owned!
I've owned these boots in black for nearly two years and I love them. They're comfortable and stylish. I great wardrobe staple.
