Even if your weekend plans involve plenty of time spent walking trails, splitting wood, and lounging around a campfire, you still don't need to abandon everything you know about style and don a pair of clunky, technical boots. These Feit Hiker Boots ($620) have style to spare and handmade artisanal construction that could quite possibly outlast you. Each pair features vegetable-tanned leather available in a range of colorways, including corteccia, nero, burgundy, smog, and natural (the last of which comes lined with shearling wool). They come completely stitched — there's no glue holding on these soles — and are made from a single piece of leather with Goodyear construction and a flexible Vibram Gumlite outsole.
Just because you're hitting the trail this weekend doesn't mean you need to abandon your sneakerhead ways — especially when you're wearing a pair of Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboots ($140). While retaining a silhouette similar to your favorite pair of sneakers, these boots feature a mid-height collar giving them better ankle support. A Lunarlon midsole gives them lots of cushioning, while a waffle outsole gives you grip on just about any surface. A cutout leather upper features suede overlays, so your feet stay comfortable without added bulk or reduced durability.
Prepare for the harshness of winter but don't miss out on the comfort of your favorite pair of sneakers with Nike LunarTerra Arktos Boots ($190). These modular boots are made using their Lunarlon midsole to reduce weight while improving comfort and movement. Nike's Vac Tec molding helps keep seams sealed around the tongue, toe, and foxing, while a sealed zipper contributes to waterproofing. Their Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies keep the upper flexible, while the sticky yet hard outsole helps for stability and traction.
In a partnership celebrating their shared outdoor heritage, and in particular their roots in logging, the Woolrich x Danner Old Growth Collection includes a pair of boots ($340), a scarf ($55), a blanket ($150), and a shirt-jacket ($295) each made in the USA. The Danner Light Mill Street boots come in a classic silhouette from a company that has made boots for nearly a century, and feature Woolrich wool quarter panels that match the other items in the collection. The shirt-jacket, scarf, and blanket are exactly what you need for a cool fall night spent in the country, or fireside in your backyard. Each item features green accents, co-branded leather details, and will be available this November.
