Ah that elusive search for the ultimate biker boot. Hard enough at the best of times (unless you are one of the lucky few who can avail yourself of Jimmy Choo’s finest) even harder when you don’t wear leather. However, all that is about to change – enter stage left Wills Vegan Shoes. For Will (launched this week) has managed to provide the holy grail of vegan footwear; not simply great vegan shoes, just simply great shoes.
We first stumbled upon Will and his wares at the London vegan festival and were immediately struck at the sheer quality of his products. Everything is well made and there is an attention to detail that is simply lacking with other manufacturers. Take the biker boot, which incidentally the pictures don’t do justice to. It is cut to be that little bit slimmer so as to make it more of a style statement, whilst still sitting squarely within the ‘biker ‘ category. It is the ultimate accompaniment to a skinny jean and is definitely going to be a staple this winter. The Chelsea boot also hits the same commitment to design and quality and is next up on our ordering wish list.
The fit seems true to size and the material is one of the closest, aesthetically, to leather that we have seen. It certainly doesn’t have that ‘plastic’ look to it and whilst these are yet to be tried and tested they also look pretty durable. Cost wise, the biker boots come in at £69 together with remarkably reasonable and very speedy shipping.
Having raved about Wills’ impending launch to all who would listen, we have friends who have taken delivery of the men’s boots and are similarly pleased with their order. As we understand it, more styles will be released in the new year so definitely one to watch. Happy shopping!
