Columbia Goes Urban & Modern with the Waterproof Hyper-Boreal Metro Boot

Oregon-based Columbia Sportswear has been cranking out hardwearing rugged outdoor gear for over 80 years now, and they’re one of the first brands to consider for any kind of wilderness excursion. But Columbia doesn’t just make gear for camping and outdoor sports. The brand also makes everyday apparel that’s built to stand up to the elements, like their new Men’s Hyper-Boreal Metro Boot.

The Columbia Men’s Hyper-Boreal Metro Boots aren’t intended for you to wear while trekking through the woods (though they’d probably work just splendidly if you did). Instead, they’re made for your messy morning commute. Whether you’ve got to trudge through rain, mud, or snow while navigating your way through an urban jungle, these modern boots will keep you dry and surefooted without missing a beat when it comes to style. The boots feature Omni-Tech breathable waterproof construction with a waterproof ballistic textile upper in a distinctly modern silhouette. The lightweight Techlite+ midsole provides both responsive cushioning and stability, while the Omni-Grip non-marking traction rubber outsole provides excellent grip on wet surfaces to keep you from wiping out while running to catch your train. The boots also feature a convenient slip-on design with front and rear pulls, making them quick and easy to put on so you have one less thing to stress over when getting ready for work.

With fall and winter weather rising their ugly heads and more and more people heading back to the office, a pair of stylish, no-fuss, weatherproof boots like the Columbia Men’s Hyper-Boreal Metro Boots just make sense right now. You can pick up a pair from Columbia’s website for $130.

Purchase: $130
