These have been one of our most popular boots since they launched in 2015.
Choose from the finest quality vegan suede we know of (the uppers have a soft grain that moves as you rub your hand over them) or Italian vegan leather made with 69% biobased content.
You can get stuff done in these boots - they’re good for both offroad treks and running about town.
They have decent ankle support with padding around the collar and lace hooks that let you do them up tight (with new extra-strong laces made from recycled polyester).
The outsoles will last years and with their deep tread gives traction from mud to pavements.
Made in Portugal. Certified carbon neutral. Like all our collections, when they are at their end of use you can use our return to recycle service to turn them into new WVS uppers and outsoles.

I purchased my first pair of dock boots in 2018. I finally retired them earlier this year after withstanding thousands of miles of daily walks, hundreds of hikes in various Indiana parks and even a few mountains in Colorado, and playing dozens of shows on drums. You won’t find more versatile, better-looking boots anywhere. And I have wide feet and they fit like a charm. I typically remove the insole that comes with and replace it with a special active sole that makes these feel like a cloud. I get compliments on these all the time. If you live a minimalist life like I do, and you need one shoe year-round to do the trick, look no further.
Just bought my third pair. First pair lasted seven or eight years; second pair should last until seven or eight years from now; third pair should outlast me.
Not super waterproof but fairly water resistant. Spent 15mins walking in long wet grass and was soaked but they aren’t meant to be waterproof either. Really light weight for a boot and comfortable, took a day or two to break in. Definitely get a size or even two sizes smaller than you usually would.
I had been looking for a good pair of vegan work boots for many years before a bought my first pair of dock boots from Will’s in 2015 or 16. Sadly, I had to retire my old friends this week (7/2023) after wearing them every day. The toe on the left boot separated from the sole at the stitching. This had more to do with my gait than the boot. The right boot was still in very good shape. So I bought another pair. I appreciate Will’s quality ethical alternatives and the proper way they do business.
Originally ordered a size which was too large, but the exchange was quick and simple. These feel very soft underfoot and after a little time to break in are comfortable all round. Should be good in all weathers and terrains.
