We have another tall boot - https://veganline.com/boots/camouflage-tall-boot in some other sizes, and https://veganline.com/boots/10-lace-boot in a lot of sizes.

This was a sample made in the UK. The factory usually uses molten rubber to make the soles on this design, but didn't risk on for a synthetic upper and so had to glue the toe cap onto a ready-made sole. The glue wasn't strong enough first time. If you buy these, you may want to prize off the toe caps and stick them on again with something like Shoe Goo. Or you mght be lucky and find that the toe caps say in with your usual use. Someone wrote that he was "walking in the mountains" in Poland when the cap came off, which is different to wearing these at a nightclub every month or two. The people who run the nightclub might find the toe cap and retrieve it for you if you don't notice it coming loose before it falls-off.

UK delivery may be by Hermes or Yodel if the jiffy bag weighs more than 2kg - the weight is very close. The shopping cart will say Royal Mail but delivery will be something like Hermes in practice - another reason why these didn't go into production.

The size would have been ten but is a bit narrow at the toes, so it's safer to call it a size nine or nine and a half and adding a thick insole.

The factory tried lasting this by hand, and the material was rather strong for the width of pliers that they use - you can see that it has stretched a bit unevenly at the sides. So there wasn't a regular batch made - just a first twelve which were given away or sold and returned or sent back to the factory, If anyone knows a nifty way to make these in somewhere like the UK or Portugal, please let us know. There is another factory in Portugal that advertises something similar, but turns down orders if you ask for microfibre instead of leather.
