Fusing the best of form and function is a challenge all performance footwear companies deal with—some better than others. Well, with the unveiling of its initial hiking boot lineup designed to bridge the gap between style and performance, start-up outdoor footwear brand Forsake seems to have it all figured out.
The collection, which includes the Hiker, the Pilot, and the Thurston, is designed with all the performance specs of a sneaker, paired with a classic, street-ready look that can take you directly from the backcountry to the bar. The boots use a combination of full grain leather and suede for comfort, as well as Cordura for durability.
Each model features a waterproof and breathable membrane for protection against the elements, as well as a gusseted tongue. Each shoe is also loaded with a dual-density EVA midsole and composite shank for stability and impact protection.
