Ethically made in Italy to the highest standards.

The Vibram injection outsoles have been designed with areas for grip, traction, braking and stability. 

The outsoles have been ballistic welded onto the uppers, so they will not part easily. 

The uppers have been created with abrasion and scuff resistant Lyliane 3DMX and Cordura materials, so you can take these off-road and not worry about what happens on the way. 

You can wear these all day and walk for long distances in comfort, walking on the removable cushioned anatomic insoles, your feet and ankles are supported with padding on the tongue and around the collar. 

These are lab tested waterproof, with waterproof seams, a sealed tongue and a special breathable waterproof membrane that does not allow water penetration. Put on and take off easily with the finger tab, using the high-grade laces threaded through lace hooks that are long lasting and allow smooth lace sliding. 

WVSport models are designed and produced in the foothills of the Dolomite Hills, Italy.

Each model is created using CAD design technology that simulates the different phases of the walking experience.

Advanced components and construction methods are used to create the models like the use of Vibram soles and a patented Support System which means the fit is always comfortable and secure.

Development samples are lab tested for days for their abrasion resistance, durability and water resistance. New models can take months sometimes years to develop.

The factory features one of the largest photovoltaic plants in Italy which means that 70% of the power used to produce WVSport footwear is from solar.

As well as working under EU employment, discrimination and health & safety law the factory has their own Charter of Human Responsibilities (or Code of Ethics) which helps ensure the company is committed to respecting the rights, work and dignity of its employees.

For sourcing the materials to create each model we work with the factory using a traceability system that enables us to trace back every step in the production process so we always know what has been used and where it has come from.

    Comfortable enough to hike in. Strong enough to kick stuff.

    Work boots

    As always, product didn’t disappoint. Very comfortable and warm work boots even for wearing them for 12 hours and over. Had to go size down from usual size.

    I tried to like these boots but they pale in comparison to the hiking boots.

    WVS website claims that once you find your size, you can order the same size in all the footwear on the site. As another reviewer points out, this is not the case, as these boots run big. I originally got a 41/9 (same as my hiking boots, which by the way are the best shoes ever!) but had to exchange them for a 40/8.5 instead. (The return process was quick and easy!) Unfortunately though, I just don't like these boots. The soles are very flat, no curvature or support for walking all day (I even added insoles, didn't help much). The soles are oddly more slippery than my hiking boot soles on the concrete floor of my warehouse workplace. The ankle supports are very cushiony, which would be nice if the laces went up high enough to hold your ankle in place. Instead they tie barely higher than the average tennis shoe, letting your foot slide around with each step, even when the laces are boa-constrictor-tight. A shame because I really wanted safer footware for work, but I still find myself choosing my hiking boots for work. They're still quality boots though, with mostly good reviews. They don't *hurt* your feet, even when not broken in. They just don't offer much else in way of stability or comfort. It's wonderful to have options for eco-friendly, vegan work shoes. The Will's Vegan logo on the side is a good touch, something I wish the hiking boots had, to help start conversations.

    Comfy but on the big side

    I was glad to find these safetly boots accomodate for my wide feet but looking back I should have sized down, normally a 39-40 but the 39 is still quite roomy. Light and comfy to work in, however, I do alot of allterrain work so would love if they were a bit higher cut to hold them on more securely and offer more ankle support.
    Hopefully down the track more styles become available an finding the perfect vegan work boots for the job will be a reality. Happy with these for now!
