We’re quickly approaching the peak of hiking season. With new trails waiting to be discovered and wild mountains ready to be ascended, all you’re missing is a pair of sturdy and ethical vegan hiking boots. A man only needs two things to conquer the wilderness: one boot on your right foot and one boot on your left foot. The rest is optional. Here are our recommendations for vegan hiking shoes for you to wear for your next camping and hiking trip.

Don’t forget vegan hiking socks!
Most hiking socks are made from wool, and most commonly Merino wool, which unfortunately aren’t vegan. No worries though, we have great alternative made from man-made materials, such as acrylic, or even from plants, like bamboo for example! Make sure to get moisture wicking and anti-odor socks if you’re going to go for long hikes or trails. Here are a few vegan options we have found for you:
