See http://www.zappos.com What's great about them is that they have free shipping both ways (in case the shoes don't work out).
I don't know about the gore-tex shoe, but in case anyone is interested, in the vegetarian athletic section they have a number of shoes suitable for hiking. I found the Garmont too wide, but Montrail has a vegan hiking boot that's better for narrower feet.

Apologies for bumping an old thread but...
Does Garmont still make a Gore-Tex vegan boot? If so, I'm having trouble finding it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I've waterproofed mine, which works OK for a little rain, but if you're stomping through puddles, it doesn't do nearly as much as Gore-Tex would, I find. For my next big trip, I'll be buying the Gore-Tex version.
Maybe it's just a function of living in the Pacific Northwest
I know they say that you don't need to break them in, but mine did require some. Definitely not as much as leather boots, but I got a few blisters on my first hike with the Garmonts.

|GhostUser||Glad to hear you like them! Definitely do the waterproofer from VeganEssentials. It works great.|

Well, I finally purchased the Garmont Vegan hiking boots and I love them! They are amazingly comfy and appear to be made from quality materials. No breaking in required which is just awesome! I didn't get the gortex version since they were quite a bit more in price and I figured I could get by with waterproofing the regular ones.
Thanks for all the recommendations!

Are you talking about the Garmont Nagevi? They still have them, but now they have leather on them.

I saw them first on Vegan Essentials, and happened to get the *only* pair for $40, used ONCE, on EBay...
Wonderful EBay, BETTER boots...which I would have dropped the $100 on willingly, had the used (and still in kick-a*s condition) ones not been my size...
The Montrails I have are Gortex, vegan, and AWESOME.

|epski||Aren't there some good Nagev boots? Anyone?|

Zappos.com just recently got the gore-tex version, although it's quite a bit more for that pair. Hubby & I get the waterproofer from Vegan Essentials, which works quite good.

|MollyGoat||I really like the Garmonts too. Their one drawback (and it is a big one) is that they are not waterproof. I hear they are coming out with a Gore-Tex version, though.|

Let me know how you like them if you end up getting them!

|kirkjobsluder||I ended up going to payless and getting a pair of cheap synthetic boots. I hate trying to find vegan footware because I'm hard to fit, and I've never successfully ordered online.|

|Rani||Those are the one's that I had my eye on too. A bit on the pricey side but sounds like it's worth it. I think I just might have to make a trip to REI this weekend and pick me up a pair of those boots. Thanks so much Rowan!!|

|GhostUser||My husband and I both have Garmonts, which I highly recommend. They needed no breaking in and have been holding up for us very well for two years now. Definitely worth the $$!|

|Rani||Can anyone recommend good vegan hiking boots? I've checked out a few sites online that seem to have good quality shoes (comfy and durable) but at the prices these things come at, I would prefer to get some reviews before having to take the plunge. Thanks!|
