Whether you’re scaling the north face of K2 or simply wandering through the city in the November rain, a pair of hiking boots will see you right.
Heritage brands like Fracap, Diemme and Danner have been instrumental in bringing the traditional leather hiking boot into the fashion spotlight. Now the style is gaining such momentum that Ralph Lauren even kitted the US Winter Olympic team out with a pair each for the opening ceremony.
