I really like my hiking boots.


I really like my hiking boots.


Doubtless they were made in a sweatshop, but can you find ones that aren’t?

Really, can you? Please?

These are vegan and nice. I bought them last year and they’ve held up on 30 or so small and not-so-small Hawaii jaunts. These were hard to find, I think I got them on eBay. They’re Hi-Tec V-Lite Altitude Max WPis, apparently.

Wow, what a string of words to describe a shoe.


Jacob’s are next to mine in this photo, his are nice too. Vegan, too. If you’re interested, I can ask him to tell me the brand. We did a really long and headache-making Google search to find decent hiking boots, so I figured I’d tell the internet about the ones we found in case it helps someone out.


Woo vegan hikers woo.

IMG_7738PS: Are you wondering why I’m blogging so much, seeing as it’s February and I’m a chocolatier and all? I wrote all these blogs weeks ago and scheduled them! Are you in awe of my dazzling brilliance? I am!

Also right now as you are reading this I am mostly likely December-level exhausted, so please give a thought to this poor cold chocolate-maker, so so so not standing happily on a mountain, unless that mountain is made of packing peanuts or something.

On the other hand, right now as you are reading this I am most likely eating something delicious, so, really, don’t worry so much about me. I’m going to be fine. Turtles are nearby, doubtless.

    Oh man, oh man,oh man! If they make these with steel toes, I will be the happiest little blue-collar vegan in the world. It’s really hard to find a good pair of vegan safety shoes.

    Oh, you’re so on top of things. I have seen some very cool-looking non-sweatshop shoes, for under $1000/pair, but decidedly NOT vegan. Apparently the old-world craftsmen (cause are there any women in the non-sweatshop shoe factory? Probably not) can’t lower themselves to work with anything other than chemical-soaked skin of a dead cow.

      Ooh, thanks for the tip! I love them, never noticed they make hiking books!
