I blogged recently about my birthday present to myself – vegan Dr. Martens – and I got a lot of compliments for them. They did look very nice but sadly I decided to return them because they were too uncomfortable. The vegan Dr. Martens are made narrower for some reason. Evidently vegans have skinny feet. Who knew? My feet have a healthy arch and it just wasn’t going to work so I returned them and bought a pair of boots from Vegetarian Shoes instead. All I can say is WOW! My new boots are the best boots ever! I’m never taking them off. I’m even going to wear them to bed.
I got the Airseal Para Boot Bucky in purple. The material is softer than the Dr. Martens but still thick and tough-looking. They’re also made in one of England’s oldest shoe-making factories. I’ve been wearing them for a total of about 2 hours so far and there’s not the slightest hint of a blister.
Now that I have a pair of purple vegetarian boots my life is complete. It was lacking before.
The company have a video of how these boots are made in the UK factory.
