    Mixed Feelings...

    Having owned these for a few months, I have very mixed feelings - the highs are very high and the lows are very low, as I'll attempt to explain.

    Let's start with the good points. They feel very sturdy and the stitching has been done very well. They're also very comfortable and I haven't experienced any rubbing or blisters at all (in sharp contrast to leather shoes which take a few weeks to break in). Vegan shoes that imitate leather can sometimes come off looking a bit plastic-y, and these boots had that ever so slightly out of the box, but this improves rapidly once you break them in (within a few days). After a few days of wear, I think they would be indistinguishable from leather - both in look and in texture. They're advertised as water resistant and I've found this to be true. I've worn them several times on a ~20 minute cycle commute in light rain and arrived with dry feet.

    And now for the parts that I think really have to be improved. The dye on the inside of the shoes bled heavily onto my socks, so much so that a few pairs of socks were ruined. This is something I might expect from the very cheapest and shoddiest shoes, and these shoes aren't cheap. The dye bleeding did slowly stop after about two months, but this is still pretty inexcusable for a £95 pair of boots. The shoe soles are advertised as being made from recycled rubber, which for me was a selling point, but the rubber they picked is very squeaky on most hard surfaces. This probably isn't a deal-breaker for all situations, but you definitely wouldn't want to wear these to an interview. It's noticeable enough that I've had to make self-deprecating jokes about it quite a few times because there's just no ignoring it, and I have to be a bit selective about the occasions/situations when I wear them. This last point is far more minor than the previous two, but the quality of the laces could be improved - they were looking tatty after about six weeks of use.

    I considered giving these three stars because they do have some very good attributes, but ultimately decided to lower it to two, as on the back of this experience I wouldn't buy shoes again from Will's. At the ~£100 price point, the quality control and attention to detail just isn't there. I've been looking a long time for a viable vegan alternative to leather shoes, and while I don't think these are a viable alternative in their present form, I'm hopeful the company will take these points on board because it really has the potential to be an excellent product with some improvement in a few key areas.

    Amazing boots and amazing service.

    The first pair of boots I ordered never arrived - Will's was amazing at sending me a new pair. No questions asked and sent them expedited. The boots are amazing. Great material - totally as advertised. Will def buy more footwear from this company.

    Great Look, Great Fit, Great Feeling

    The Chukka Boots are exactly what I was hoping for. The look is amazing, and the fit is perfect (I have a wide toe area of my feet, so was concerned, but the toe-box on these shoes were just wide enough for me). And the feeling that I am able to have shoes that are viewed as acceptable in professional settings, while not harming animals in the making, is wonderful. Thanks to Wills Vegan.
