Description of vegan shoe boot or belt
Wellingtons under 2kg - good for travelling and for mail order as well as being vegan like most wellingtons. They are also made in Portugal - a democratic welfare state. The wholesaler doesn't stock size 40 or 45, preferring to sell in slightly fewer approximate english sizes. Average height across the sizes is 23cm. The sole tread very deep under the heel, which will pick-up a lot of mud but also provides a little cushioning while you walk. These are in the "slip on" category, but you know how wellingtons work: there's nothing like a lace or elastic; you just shove your foot in, and if they rub you wear thicker layers of socks or add an insole.
Recycling is probably hard because plastic and fabric are melted-together.
