Several decades ago a man by the name of Lou Whittaker, a renowned climber, set his mind to claiming the Great Couloir of Mt. Everest’s North Face as his own. It was a route that up until that time was never attempted out of sheer caution. However, Whittaker brushed all the hearsay by the wayside and set out in his pair of New Balance Rainier Boots to prove himself.

Now, New Balance is bringing the Rainier back into production in the form of a sneakerboot. It’s a tribute to the original, equipped with the same features such as a premium leather and nylon canvas upper, an Achilles-supporting padded collar, heavy-duty Vibram rubber sole, leak prevention below the tongue, and a fully waterproof Gore-Tex lining. They’re a new twist on the classic boot that traversed more than 21,000 feet of rock, moraine, snow and ice. And while odds are you won’t be ascending Everest anytime soon, you can bet it’ll stand up to whatever Winter throws your way this season. These trail shoes retail for $180. [Purchase]
