When you’re in our line of work, you’re exposed to some of the most interesting products — and companies — around. 1017 ALYX 9SM is one such example. They’ve made quite a name for themselves when it comes to high-fashion, pairing their undeniable commitment to street-style with a set of eclectic design principles that can only be described as unique, resulting in some of today’s most revered pieces. Now, the company has introduced its self-titled hiking boot — an attractive silhouette that’s full of technical inspiration.

At first glance, the 1017 ALYX 9SM Hiking Boot comes off as an interesting take on contemporary outdoor footwear. It arrives in two colorways — a hazel-toned silhouette that’s adorned in premium leather panels and delicate pony hair, and an attractive, albeit minimal, gloss black, which features carbon fiber accents throughout. Within the shoe’s more stealthy iteration, you’ll find premium nubuck fabrics, ripstop nylon, and a durable Vibram sole, helping wearers to tread the urban environment with ease. On the shoe’s collar, sidewall, and toe, the implementation of textured, carbon-esque paneling provides a striking contrast to the Hiker’s smooth layers. 1017 ALYX 9SM’s hazel and black Hiking Boots are available now via the company’s website for $830.

Purchase: $830
