FAQ About Vegan Barefoot Shoes

Are Vivobarefoot shoes vegan?

Not all of them. Vivobarefoot has a great vegan collection but they also have models that use animal leather and wool. For cruelty-free shoes, see our Vivobarefoot’s vegan collection here.

What are vegan barefoot shoes made of?

Vegan barefoot shoes can be made from a variety of fabrics such as mesh, synthetic leather, microfiber as well as cotton and hemp.

Where can you buy vegan barefoot shoes?

The best place to buy vegan barefoot shoes is Amazon. Check out also online stores of individual barefoot brands such as Vivobarefoot, Lem’s Shoes, and Leguano Shoeos.

Are barefoot shoes good for you?

Yes, absolutely. Research has shown that wearing barefoot shoes is good for your knees, back, and posture, so definitely give them a shot.


However odd the barefoot trend might have seemed a few years back, the research on its health benefits is today undeniable. Therefore, we are thrilled that there are many amazing brands that offer vegan barefoot shoes, boots, and sneakers for everyone to enjoy.

As the main buzzword in barefoot trend is ‘natural’, we hope barefoot brands will give up the old-fashioned animal leather, and instead focus on plant-based fabrics that are slowly but surely becoming the new natural in the fashion world.

The barefoot market and vegan shoe markets are both growing rapidly. We’ll continuously keep listing new barefoot brands and reviewing their vegan selection, so you can find the best vegan minimalist shoes for yourself.

10 Best Winter Hiking Boots of 2021-2022

10 Best Winter Hiking Boots of 2021-2022

Today’s winter boots are waterproof, insulated, and compatible with traction aids such as microspikes and snowshoes. While 200 gram Thinsulate insulated mids are fine for commuting and short local walks down to about 20 degrees, we recommend buying boots with higher calf coverage and 400 gram Thinsulate insulation for all-day hikes and mountain climbs in colder temperatures. We are highly experienced winter hikers with many mountain summits and understand what it takes to stay safe and comfortable on long and challenging winter hikes.

Here are our top 10 best winter hiking boot recommendations:

Note: The boots listed below are single layer boots designed for all-day winter hikes and snowshoeing trips in subzero weather. You can use them for overnight trips if you wear a Rab vapor barrier liner sock or a plastic bag (see our FAQ) to prevent the lining from getting wet from perspiration and freezing overnight. Alternatively, you can buy a double-layer boot that has a removable liner, like the Baffin Borealis (see our review) or a Scarpa Inverno Mountaineering Boot, and sleep with it in your sleeping bag to prevent it from freezing at night. 

1. KEEN Revel IV High Polar Winter Boots

KEEN’s Revel IV High Polar Bootsare rated to -40F with 5 mm lugs for added traction in snow. These winter boots have KEEN’s large signature toe box and run a bit wide, so they’re good for people who have a hard time jamming their feet into narrow boots. A beefy toe kick, heel ridge, and excellent side protection make these boots ideal for challenging terrain. A thermal heat shield insole is included for added warmth. Wide sizes and a women’s modelare both available.

2. Merrell Chameleon Thermo 8 Tall WP

Chameleon Thermo 8
The Merrell Chameleon Thermo 8 Tall WPis a warm winter hiking boot with 400-gram insulation layered over a comfortable Polartec 200 lining. The height of the boot’s cuff is 8″, so they’re much lighter weight than boots that run higher up your calf. The Thermo 8’s have a protective toe cap and heel cup, but less lateral protection than boots with heavy wraparound rands. EVA midsoles and molded nylon arch shanks deliver cushioning and stability.  Snowshoe strap ridges and an arch help secure microspike and snowshoe bindings while providing gaiter compatibility. A women’s model is available.

3. Merrell Thermo Glacier Mid Waterproof Boot

The Merrell Thermo Glacier Mid WP Winter Bootis insulated with 400-gram insulation, in addition to extra Aerogel over the toes, making them good for people with chronically cold toes.  They have metal lacing hardware that is easier to use, reinforced rubber toe caps for front protection, a fleece liner for warmth, and heat-reflecting insoles that radiate body heat back toward your feet. Compression-molded EVA midsoles and molded nylon arch shanks provide cushioning and stability, while the 5 mm Vibram lugs provide excellent traction on snow and ice.  A women’s version is not available at this time.

An arched midsole and front gaiter clip ensure gaiter compatibility, while a padded tongue and collar provide all-day comfort. The extra tall cuff also helps seal in heat. The fit runs slightly wide, so these are a good option for people with larger feet. A women’s model is also available.

9. La Sportiva Nepal EVO GTX Mountaineering Boots

The La Sportiva Nepal Evois a single skin leather mountaineering boot lined with Gore-Tex Duratherm, a lightweight and waterproof insulation layer. They have a rigid TPU last and innovative lace locks so you can get the lacing tight enough to front-point with crampons. An integrated mini gaiter helps seal the top of the boots for greater warmth and keeps out debris, while front and rear welts enable compatibility with all crampon types. Sizing is unisex.

How to Select Winter Hiking Boots

Winter boots should be waterproof and insulated to keep your feet dry and warm, they should have laces, they should be comfortable so you can wear them all day, and they should be compatible with traction aids like microspikes and snowshoes. While the amount of insulation you need will vary, winter boots with non-removable synthetic insulation are the lightest weight and therefore the easiest to hike in. Boots made with synthetic materials are also lighter weight and more waterproof than leather boots.

The reason you can’t use your regular 3 season boots or shoes for winter hiking, comes down to waterproofing and insulation. Most insulated winter hiking boots are guaranteed waterproof out of the box. Many have lowers made with rubber or waterproof synthetics so you don’t have to worry about the fabric absorbing water. If you do get moisture in your boots, insulated winter boots will still keep them warm. The same can’t be said about leather hiking boots, even when treated with waterproofing creams and sprays. If your regular hiking boots absorb water in winter, they can freeze and lead to frostbite.

Some boot manufacturers provide temperature ratings for their products, but there’s no standard way for measuring the warmth of winter boots. Understand that these ratings are estimates at best and that users will have varying experiences based on their activity level, health, weight, sex, metabolism, and other factors.

Some winter boot manufacturers publish the thickness of the insulation in their boots, while others don’t. For example, some boots have 200 gram Thinsulate insulation, a popular synthetic insulation, while others use 400-gram insulation. All of the boots listed above have 400-gram insulation or the equivalent, so they can be used well below zero. This is the insulation we recommend if you hike in the backcountry, where winter hikes may last far longer than anticipated.

Key Winter Boot Features

Temperature ratings

While you need to take the manufacturer’s temperature ratings with a grain of salt, they are a good indication of the relative warmth of a boot. While it’s difficult to make warmth comparisons between boots that have different kinds of insulation, knowing the amount of insulation used in boots can help you compare the warmth of different models made by the same manufacturer.

Gusseted tongue

This is just like a regular boot tongue, except the sides are closed and sewn to the side of the boots to prevent water from leaking into the boot when you step in puddles.

Reinforced toe cap

In addition to providing more protection, a beefy toe cap won’t collapse the front of the boot when worn with microspikes or crampons.


The soles of your boots should provide good traction when walking on loose or packed snow. Look for boots with a deep tread like a Vibram sole, although you’re likely to augment your boot with microspikes.


Looks for boots with a soft cuff that closes off the gap between your leg and boot.

Gaiter ring

A gaiter ring is a small ring attached to the top of the boot that you can hook your gaiters onto. It’s not the end of the world if your boots don’t have one since can still hook the gaiter to your boot laces.

Untitled Motorcycles’ 1983 BMW R100 ‘Kalifornia’ Build Is Currently for Sale

Hugo Eccles isn’t your average custom motorcycle builder. Born in the UK and based in San Francisco, Eccles was formerly trained in industrial design before going on to spend the next 25 years working for brands like Ford, Nike, and TAG Heuer. Eventually, Hugo would open the SF shop, Untitled Motorcycles, allowing him to harness his design expertise and apply it to churning out immaculate one-off motorcycles.

One such bike is UMC’s “Kalifornia” build, a tired early ’80s BMW R100 that’s been completely redesigned to achieve a scrambler-meets-brat-meets-cafe racer aesthetic. Eccles has treated the BMW to one-off fenders front and aft, a custom headlight housing that now accommodates a yellow lens and a Motogadget speedometer, a bespoke exhaust system culminating in a pair of stainless steel cafe-style cone mufflers, a custom cross-stitched tan leather seat courtesy of Acker Leather Works, and ultra-low Renthal bars equipped with CRG bar-end mirrors, Tommaselli grips, modified Posh switchgear, and Motogadget bar-end LED indicators. The airhead’s stock tank also remains in play, though it’s been hit with a custom white livery accented via a brushed bare metal front section, BMW M Racing color stripes, and bespoke metal UMC tank badges replacing the fuel cell’s factory Roundels. And, in typical UMC fashion, Eccles has bestowed the build with a slew of subtle details such as fully de-tabbed and powder-coated framework, reconditioned shocks and forks with upgraded internals, internally-routed wiring, upgraded brakes, a new wheelset, new valve covers, a custom hub-mounted license plate bracket with an integrated LED plate light, and a stripped and vapor-blasted engine, just to name only a few of the build’s more than 50 custom features and components.

Untitled Motorcycles’ 1983 BMW R100RT “UMC-029 Kalifornia” build is currently for sale on The Bike Shed’s classified pages just outside of San Francisco in Los Altos, California. Priced at $20,000, the sale includes the iconic custom build, as well as a bespoke Bell Bullitt helmet with matching livery.

Purchase: $20,000
