I have been on the hunt for a pair of well-made, water-resistant, vegan, ethically-manufactured black boots for months. I mean MONTHS! And there are several brands out there, but none that totally had me sold and were within my budget.
Along came Wills Vegan Shoes. This London-based retailer prides themselves on producing vegan shoes that are both ‘animal and human-friendly’. I sure liked the sound of that! With plenty of styles on offer, I went back and forth until finally settling on the Aviator 2’s. I was after a boot that was suitable for everyday, but could also be dressed up for an evening outfit and this option seemed to tick all the boxes. The reviews were all beaming too, which helped me make the decision.
They are a delight! They definitely feel the way new Dr Martens do – as though they need a good few wears to break them in. But that’s good – it indicates a sturdy boot that is likely to last. These are breathable and water-resistant, so perfect for the British weather. They have a slight heel too, which gives them a healthy dose of feminity. Chic work boots, if you like. Ethically-made and PETA-approved, they tick all the boxes.
I don’t think I can give these a full review until after a few months of wearing, but so far I am so pleased with the size (true to size) and quality. I would highly recommend checking out the Wills Vegan Shoes website if you’re looking for a new pair of kicks. I can’t think of a single outfit that these wouldn’t go with.
