Shoulder season requires a kit unlike any other. It must be versatile, and ready for 60 degree temps one minute and 30 degree the next. But like any gear kit worth its salt, it also has to look good, and be able to transition from a day in the woods to an evening in town. The key? Gear that's sleek and stylish but designed and constructed using high-quality technical materials. We teamed up with HOKA ONE ONE to curate just such a kit, that looks just as much in its element in the woods of New England as it does on the streets of Brooklyn.

HOKA's new TenNine Hike Gore-Tex is the brand's top of the line premium hiking boot. And while that should tell you enough of what this boot is about, the real talking point is that it's designed specifically to make hiking feel both smoother and easier. The brand's unique HUBBLE(R) design gently catches the foot’s impact, and paired with the characteristic wide, maximal-cushion platform, is ultra-stable. It weighs in at just 416 grams, which makes it a veritable featherweight compared to more traditional hiking boots. But the TenNine Hike Gore-Tex stays right on track where it counts. First, the inclusion of a Gore-Tex membrane liner to keep your feet dry — a tried and true outdoor material that's used on everything from jackets to hats to hiking boots. Second, the Vibram Megagrip outsole — which provides plenty of traction across a wide variety of surfaces.
