Ridgemont Outfitters Heritage Boot
Save $49: It’s hard to argue with the capability of hiking boots, easier so to deny their ugly outdoorsy aesthetic; Ridgemont Outfitters treads the path between the two with its Heritage Boot. Built with an oiled leather upper, a waterproof lining and a lugged rubber sole, the Heritage draws its retro inspiration from the hiking boots of the 70s and 80s and fine-tunes that style for wear on mountain trails and city sidewalks alike. The Heritage Boot fits like a sneaker, walks like a hiker and looks decent enough for wear around town. Right now, it’s also marked down at Huckberry in various colors by 27 percent. — Tanner Bowden
