    While DEmedic's posts might be a little unwelcoming, the reality is you will be hard pressed to find them. however, you can try this link http://bfy.tw/9FFY

    Check out the second choice, I have never used them, but they might suit your needs.

    I do know of many people that just wear black sneakers on the ambulance, but I prefer my steel toe zipper boots for the protection and waterproofness.

    Maybe it was a little hard, but I did respond appropriately in the beginning of this thread.

    OP- I want vegan boots. I don't want to pay $200 for them.

    Me: $200 isn't unreasonable for EMS boots.

    OP: blah blah blah

    Question was asked and answered.

    Me: vegan chicken nuggets post.

    So shoot me.

    Walking on eggshells? That would be cruel. I believe there is a synthetic product that is cruelty free to simulate eggshells for uncomfortable situations.

    to be completely honest DE shouldn't even be saying his post was hard. Welcome to the real world... people are *******s, as a movie would say "...The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it...". You want to make a choice go for it, but don't call us jerks. This isn't even "real life" this is the internet, get used to it. I had no idea vegan boots where a thing. I have a friend who's a vegan, do i make jokes yes, does she make them back at me, you bet. Do vegans have a habit of making it known they are a vegan, yes. Just like we all have habits, and things we want to boast about. I'd hope we can all be adults and learn how to simply ignore somebody. also a sense of humor would help every now and then.
    Thats all :D.

    To answer all comments at once.

    I don't announce to everyone I'm vegan. If they offer me food I won't eat or they notice I'm not eating chili or hamburgers and ask why not, I am honest about it. Usually out respect for me, 90% of them leave me alone. I will leave you alone if you leave me alone, kind of thing. Being vegan does not hinder my ability to my job or be a trustworthy partner. Same for those that are Jewish, gay, black ,Asian, Mormon, transgender, male, female, purple, green, missing teeth, ugly, overweight by 15 pounds or from Pluto.

    I am not thin skinned. At all actually. I get snarky comments, etc all the time. For being a woman and for being vegan, hell sometimes I get it just for looking at a blank wall the wrong way. People suck. All I did was comment to the OP, extending peace and support. I'm not really sure where your hostility is coming from "Summit".

    I do not take gel cap medication. All my vitamins and/or medication are tablet form usually. Occasional you can find non gelatin capsules, usually online. Will I administer gel cap medications or drips of any kind? Yes, because my personal beliefs cannot influence patient safety or care. My beliefs are not necessarily going to be shared by my patient. What a dumb question, no offense.

    Again, here I am defending myself for no reason. Instead of answering the OP's question, you are asking really stupid questions and badgering someone who is literally doing no harm to anyone.

    Here are some smiley faces so you all know I mean not to start a pointless thread war:

    Did you not follow the story about the idiot clerk who refused to give marriage licences to gay people because it was against her personal beliefs? in case you don't read the news: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...eals-contempt-ruling-keeping-her-jail-n422751

    I think it was a fair question. There are doctors who won't perform abortions because it's against their beliefs. you were the one who got all high and mighty about it, when others do it all the time (and some end up in jail because they insist of pushing their beliefs on others, despite the law telling them not to).

    Stop being so defensive, and maybe, just maybe, you won't catch hell from others for looking at a blank wall the wrong way

    But by you saying "ugly" or "missing teeth" you are judging them, so WHY should they not judge you???o_O
    @Summit has been nothing but respectful to me, and quite helpful i may add with some questions I have had. Granted it may have been that i actually* am not thin skinned, and laughed when people sent me a donut picture on dunkin donuts day(because im a LEO), i didn't get offensive and brackish.
    Not to mention he gave a 100% valid response answering the OP's question fully and honestly "You want a specialty design that doesn't use one of the most durable and common materials for ideological reasons, so yea $200 might be right... or just get a pair of synthetic waterproof trail runners. I never felt like I needed boots on the ambo anyway."

    Although the fact that you said you won't hinder patient care gives you a +1/ back to even in my book(not that it matters). Just a life tip free of charge: Don't let people bother you, once you can laugh at yourself the world will get a whole lot brighter.
    thats all folks.:cool:

    You loved the donut memes, and you know it!! But the best part was you signing off on your above post like Porky Pig*

    *not a vegan knock.

    Seriously though, I had no idea Converse made boot-like sneakers. It did cross my mind to buy a pair, and see how long it would take my manager to see that I am wearing a pair of Chuck Taylor "boots".

    Ok I guess that I'll contribute to the productivity of this thread. I have a list of things that you shouldn't cheap out on. Boots are one of those things, why buy a crappy, cheap pair of boots when you can easily spend most of your day standing? Back problems from improper and poorly made footwear is a thing. Is it completely irrational to spend $200 on something that'll make your life better in the long run? No, this is just my way of thinking. Spend the money on high quality boots cause in the long run it will save you money. But $200 boots every 10 years vs $50 boots every 6 months. You do the math. Plus you don't know expensive boots until you've bought a $450 pair of boots, yes I did spend that much on boots. Granted they're not for ambulance work, they're wildland boots and you can bet your last paycheck that I spent 24+ hours on my feet comfortably.

    Now finding vegan ems boots I have no idea. I honestly didn't know they're was such a thing. My whole post was on the merit that $200 isn't much money in the long run when those $200 pair of boots can last you years on end.
