Made in Italy to the highest standards these have been designed for traction, stability, comfort and durability in the most demanding terrains.
The Vibram rubber injection outsoles have been designed with areas for grip, traction, braking and stability. 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, so you can take these off-road and not worry about what happens on the way. You can wear these for long distances in comfort, walking on the removable cushioned anatomic insoles, your feet and ankles are supported with padding on the tongue and around the collar.
These are lab tested waterproof, with waterproof seams, a sealed tongue and a special breathable waterproof membrane that does not allow water penetration. Put on and take off easily with the finger tab, using the high-grade laces threaded through lace hooks that are long lasting and allow smooth lace sliding.
Finished in a dark brown colour scheme with vegan suede finish uppers, metal waterproof tag, subtle WVS stamp on the tongue and gold Vibram octagon.
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.
Will's Vegan Shoes are made from the best quality vegan leathers and suedes. It is easy to keep our footwear looking brand new.
The materials we use do not get ruined when they are wet and do not stain. Do not worry if you get them covered in mud. They will not even be damaged by road salt and slush in winter.
This footwear is waterproof. This means it can be worn for long periods in heavy rain, deep puddles, long wet grass, deep snow, flowing water and you will have dry feet.
You can wear these in cold temperatures though please bear in mind they are not insulated so you will need to wear thick socks to keep your feet warm.
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.
Vegan footwear is easy to clean. Here are some simple 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
Leave until dry then brush down with a suede brush. If really dirty you can also wipe the footwear down with a cloth using a mild soapy solution. Use a hard brush if you need to remove any stuck on dirt or clean up the soles. To dry pad down with a towel. Do not put too close to a direct heat source like a radiator as it can damage the material. You should not expect water marks to show.
Do not use waterproofing or other protective treatments. You do not need to use them as the materials are already protected. These treatments are not meant for vegan materials and they can react badly if applied. You can use any synthetic polish to bring back a shine.
