Millions of London commuters know the Imperial War Museum's posters of a camouflage Jungle boot. They have been one of the main advertisers on London Underground for months, and show a camouflage ankle boot. Up till now the boot has not been on sale.
A small vegan shoe company - Veganline.com - has decided to get some made at one of the UK's few remaining boot factories and they will be on sale online from the end of the week.
"They are trendy, they are made using fair employment, they promote local industry and they are good for the environment," says John Robertson of Veganline.com "that touches on all the trends in footwear just at the moment, as well as using some free advertising".
The Jungle boot saves the jungle as well as looking like it, according to recent reports that link over-farming with excessive demand for animal products.
"It takes several times more land to feed and clothe a meat eater than a vegan", says John, "as well as generating extra methane and heat. Cloth-top shoes are some of the most environmentally friendly ones you can get".
