Made in Italy to the highest standards these have been designed for traction, stability, comfort and durability in the most demanding terrains.
The Vibram rubber 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 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 we use to product WVSport models 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.

At first they felt stiff and I was a bit worried. After 3 weeks or so that changed and now they are comfy. Also very waterresistant. Ive walked in rain and mud and kept my feet dry. So, Im happy.
I've had two pairs of these boots before and they've been some of the comfiest shoes I've ever had. Both pairs only lasted about a year, however I was using them every day walking the dog etc. I could walk for miles in these and have no discomfort whatsoever.
I was therefore extremely disappointed to find that when I tried my third new pair, there was a problem with the left boot (the right boot was perfect, as before). Just below the last stud on the right, it seemed there was no padding and a hard/metal bit was pressing into my foot as the boot flexed at the forefoot, before the toes (like if going up the stairs or hiking up a mountain). Due to this issue I returned the boots as faulty and asked for a replacement.
The replacement boots arrived and I was extremely disappointed to find that once again the left boot had a problem just below the last lace stud. I tried to contact WVS support via the chat client in order to explain the problem to see if there was an issue with the new design. I got no response however and despite the chat client's reassurances, I received no follow up email.
Stupidly and because I was very busy at the time, I decided to give the shoes the benefit of the doubt in the hopes that the hardness in the left shoe might ease up and the boot would be comfortable. It's been a few weeks now and no such luck: it's still uncomfortable to wear and I wouldn't take it for anything longer than a dog walk.
Extremely disappointed as these were one of my favourite pairs of boots and now I feel I'll have to look elsewhere for a nice pair of vegan hiking boots. I've bought quite a few pairs of shoes from WVS so was also unhappy with the support response and lack of options. The only plus point through the whole process was the return of the first pair of boots: that was very convenient and quick and I received a replacement pair in good time (shame those also suffered the same problem!).
I love hiking, and I always under pack. I got these boots because I wanted one pair of good hiking boots that I could wear on a trail yet still put on a cute outfit to go into museums or on tours without having to change my shoes. As I have been a vegan for 5 years, I am aware of how hard it is to find vegan hiking boots in a neutral color. So when I found these, I got very excited. $148 is a reasonable price for good hiking books and them being waterproof was exactly what I wanted. Yet, I am very disappointed with my purchase. I first tried these on October 21st, 2022 and already, they are insanely creased, and the toe is peeling off of one of them. Furthermore, these trap odors like no other shoe I have ever owned. They REEK. If you're looking for a pair of shoes solely for city travel, these could work, they do provide good ankle support and their waterproofing is good. However, if you're like me who wants to get dirty, go on long hikes, and be adventurous, spend your money elsewhere. I have had a different pair of vegan hiking boots for over four years and they still look brand-new while these look like I've had them for decades. Also fair warning - they do run wide.
This is my third pair of these boots. They’re great. They get comfy very quickly, have decent grip and keep my feet warm and dry 👍
J'ai acheté une paire il y a maintenant plus d'un an et elles sont encore en parfait état. Je les recommande à 100% : confort instantané, légèreté étonnante, résistance à l'eau, durabilité, tout y est!
I've had my pair for more than a year now and I'm perfectly happy with it ! My boots are still in perfect shape and I would recommend the brand to everyone. They were instantly comfortable, they are light, my feet are never wet and they are not damaged in any way.
