So theres boots for the vegetarian, made with no animal products from Vegetarian Shoes, a producer that has been hand making vegetarian shoes since 1990. Now expanding production into factories with good working conditions across the UK and Europe. These boots are made from a synthetic microfibre that is as breathable as leather and manufacturer has a wide range but I'll be looking at:
The Airseal 20 Eye Black Boot
Now this monster probably makes even Mike Tyson consider it a little too beefy, but theres no meat in the production of these. Its a proper stylish boot for the hardcore dandy. They will take a little wearing in but, being microfibre, its not as tough as leather but it still remains as durable if you're looking to go out on the prowl. Lets say you're wearing these for a good tramp up a hill they are just as useful as they would be for heading out to see The Oppressed. there is plenty of calf support there and they won't be cutting into your skin too much. At most you'll get a couple of blisters for the first couple of weeks.
The grip is quite simple so it won't be the finest for heading off on a proper ramble, but a sensible head walking in the hills, knowing your equipment should be decent enough. On the dancefloor, the aircushioned sole will come in useful and you'll be pogoing along like the maddest hatter at the tea-party. And to me thats what sums this boot up. Its a top hat and tails, cheeky grin and a charming wit of a boot, with some added nuts for entertainment. It has its limits but it can deal with anything once its put its mind to it.
