does anyone have a viable option for footwear that is equally durable protective and versatile to commercially available toxic gick filled boots? I'd love to do away with all toxins glues and water proofing spraypetroleum based products etc and this includes in my wardrobe!
Now I've made a scarf and I could see making my own clothes perhaps even a pair of moccasins but when it comes to boots it seems that I'd have to devote a lifetime to make my own of any count.
Does anyone have a simple design for homestead made footcoverings that will serve the purpose of a good work or hiking boot with out sacrificing quality?
Craftmen and artisans Please show me your homemade shoes!
They don't look like great work wear but they do look to be made of sustainable and readily available materials. I bet those would be easily made in any half decent wood shop and you could youtube the leather thong work or visit a local leather shop for help.
I dont think those will work for my goals but I would love to see a post if you decide to craft your own.

I was mulling your question today. So when I got home I did a search for Vegan shoes. With the idea that toxic gick aka toxic fairy dust would be hard to find in vegan shoes. So I found this website https://wills-vegan-store.com/ I did a little digging and they do sell work boots. But I did not find anything today that said "we do not use toxic fairy dust".
Please note that I am a non militant vegan but I laughs at jokes about vegans.

Those aren't bad looking and it sounds like they have taken into consideration many aspects of earth care and people care in their design production and supply chain choices.
Thanks for showing those.
I like the water resistance of the material and the ease of care that they claim.
The information provided doesn't say anything about glues so that gives me pause but I'm sure I could email them and find answers.
I'm really looking more for something that I can make with limited import and only moderate honing of skill ha!
I am a non militant omnivore that enjoys vegan jokes and quality meats but I still end up eating far more vegetable than animal mainly because they are easier to grow!
