The Best Vegan Hiking Boots
Hit the trails in these sustainable shoes!
Whether you’re hiking through a national park or on a local trail, it’s important to have a solid pair of hiking shoes. The great outdoors features a variety of terrains that regular sneakers can’t handle. Well, unless you want to slip and slide your way downhill. So, you’re going to want a pair of shoes with good grip, arch and ankle support, and overall durability. That’s why we’ve created this list of the best vegan hiking boots on the market!
Will’s Vegan Store
When it comes to sustainable shoes, Will’s Vegan Store stocks a variety of options! The WVSport Waterproof Hiking Boots boast ethically sourced material and produced using 70% solar power. With great grip, support, and comfort, these kicks are a stellar choice for your outdoor adventures!
Quick on your feet? Tecnica’s MAGMA D MID GTX vegan hiking boots are just what you need! The midsole toe rocker is designed for fast acceleration and quick transitions on multiple terrains. Other great features include a compound rubber outsole for better grip, an ultra-large heel shape for improved downhill performance, and a GORE-TEX liner for breathable waterproof protection.
If traditional hiking boots are too bulky for your liking, shop at Vivobarefoot! Their Magna Trail II vegan hiking shoes sport a sock-like knitted collar to make it feel like you’re barefoot. They’re composed of recycled materials like post-consumer plastic waste.
We love it when mainstream brands like Merrell offer sustainable vegan options! Their popular Moab Speed GORE-TEX style is made using recycled materials for the laces, webbing, mesh lining, mesh footbed cover, and outsole. The shoes are available in a variety of neutral colors in sizes for women and men.
No matter the terrain or weather conditions you face, La Sportiva’s Ultra Raptor II MID GTX shoes are built to last. One of the best features of this vegan hiking boot is its ankle support. It comes primarily from the shoe’s high-top collar and an innovative lacing system that evenly distributes tension.
If you tend to take more challenging trails, you might want to consider getting the Trailventure 2 WP! This vegan hiking boot from Topo Athletic includes a flexible rock protection plate, extra cushion, and a Vibram rubber outsole. So, go out there and venture off the beaten path!
This athletic footwear brand is taking the world by storm—and they have vegan-friendly styles! With less weight and more traction than most hiking shoes, the Speedgoat 5 model is perfect for trail runs.
