This boot is perfect for wearing around the city, and then veering off the path to a rough terrain trail. It works well in all conditions, which is good for an all-in-one boot. You won’t need another boot for a different setting!

This boot is helpful for feet that are more sensitive to rough ground and impact. This boot is meant for comfort and easiness on the walking or hiking trail. It’s a relatively lightweight boot. The upper is made of leather with ankle support and a waterproof eVent sock liner.
