15 Pairs Of Hiking Boots That Can Be Worn Off The Mountain

While you were sleeping, hiking boots and platform boots took over the runways. All-terrain gear might not be the first thing on our list while on a shopping binge, but chic hiking boots are proving to be the shoe of choice this upcoming autumn. We're not mad at the emerging shoe trend when it's this practical and comfortable.
We're familiar with the myriad of mountain-ready styles available at R.E.I., but contemporary brands are making the boot all its own with flashy laces, contrast stitch leather finishing, and touches of cosy shearling. So before you catch yourself googling "cool hiking boots," we've rounded up 15 pairs that are a good starting point.
There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
