"Modern" is not usually a word you'd use to describe hiking boot designs, which tend to lean towards heritage-inspired aesthetics with a function-over-fashion approach. But leave it to uber-cool L.A. designer John Elliott to shake things up.

It also features an innovative lacing system (just pull the tabs and go) with neoprene detailing for comfort and an outdoor hiking sole for healthy grip on all surfaces.
