When you need the protection a pair of wellies provides from water, mud, slush, snow and everything else nature can throw at you, but want the comfort and versatility of a walking boot, our WVSport Country Boots are the answer.
Tested and certified waterproof all the way to the top, you can wade through streams, trudge through snow, squish through muddy fields and generally have lots of fun wearing these with dry feet all day.
The fit like all our WVSport models is slightly wider with a rounded toe box with little more height, giving you room to move your toes, allow your feet swell when you get hot or wear a thick sock on colder days.
The Vibram rubber injection outsoles have been designed with areas for grip, traction, braking and stability. They have an open tread, when it is super muddy they will not clog up and will be easy to hose or scrape down at the end of a long walk.
You can put these boots through their paces and depend on them for reliability. The outsoles have been ballistic welded onto the uppers, so they will not part easily. The uppers have been created with abrasion and scuff resistant Lyliane 3DMX and Cordura materials. WVSport Country Boots are built to last.
Where these boots really come into their own is their all day comfort. The boots sit snugly but comfortably on your lower calf, thanks to the soft stretchy knitted back panel that does not dig in or rub. The outsoles are not heavy and have a nice flex, so are quite different to a traditional pair of wellie boots, they are more like wearing a pair of sturdy trainers, so can be worn for long distances. Your feet walk on removable cushioned anatomic insoles and your ankles are supported by the patented Support System.
WVSport models are designed and produced in the foothills of the Dolomite Hills, Italy.
Each model is created using CAD design technology that simulates the different phases of the walking experience.
Advanced components and construction methods are used to create the models like the use of Vibram soles and a patented Support System which means the fit is always comfortable and secure.
Development samples are lab tested for days for their abrasion resistance, durability and water resistance. New models can take months sometimes years to develop.
The factory features one of the largest photovoltaic plants in Italy which means that 70% of the power used to produce WVSport footwear is from solar.
As well as working under EU employment, discrimination and health & safety law the factory has their own Charter of Human Responsibilities (or Code of Ethics) which helps ensure the company is committed to respecting the rights, work and dignity of its employees.
For sourcing the materials to create each model we work with the factory using a traceability system that enables us to trace back every step in the production process so we always know what has been used and where it has come from.
SUSTAINABLE / ETHICAL / VEGAN ACTIVE FOOTWEAR
We use high quality vegan leathers and suedes to make our footwear, you will find your purchase requires little attention to keep looking as good as new.
Our footwear does not spoil or stain when it gets wet. In-fact it performs really well in wet and muddy conditions. Unlike leather or suede our materials do not spoil or mark even when in contact with road salt and snow slush in winter conditions.
This footwear is waterproof. This means you can wear for extended periods of time in rain, walk through puddles, walk through wet grass, light snow and have dry feet. You can also wear in deep snow, deep puddles, running water or extended periods of heavy rain.
You can wear these in colder temperatures, however they are not insulated. We recommend wearing a thick insulating sock to keep your feet warm in freezing temperatures or you may get cold feet.
Our footwear is easy to clean. Here are some general cleaning instructions:
Vegan leather uppers Wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. Polish can be used to bring out a shine and return colour. Any synthetic product should work just fine, apply as described in the instructions. It is recommended you test an inconspicuous area first.
Vegan suede uppers Wait until dry then brush with a suede brush or something similar. For more extreme cases you can wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. You should not expect water marks as the material does not mark or stain like conventional suede when it gets wet.
Please do not apply waterproof or other protective treatments. This is because these treatments are not necessary and can mark and damage the materials. These treatments are not meant for vegan leather, they do not react well when applied and they do not react well when applied.
