With summer winding to a close and fall knocking on our front door, it’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors for an afternoon or weekend hike. However, too many of us fail to understand the importance of a quality hiking shoe in not only creating comfort but keeping you from spraining an ankle or worse, losing traction.
Nobody knows how to tackle the great outdoors quite like the folks at Rocky S2V. Since WWII, the beloved brand has been building combat boots for the U.S. Special Ops, and now they’re bringing that same technology and durability to civilians looking to explore everything Mother Nature has to offer. Doused in red and black, these trailers runners boast performance, comfort, and stability to the wearer wherever the trail may take them. They’re made from breathable mesh and neoprene compression technology for enhanced durability without making your feet sweat the entire time. There’s a quick lacing system, complete with nylon pull loops at the tongue and heel while a dual-density Vibram rubber outsole boasts a grip to keep you grounded on any and all terrain. In addition, its EVA midsole provides extra shock absorption and cushioning for that extra level of comfort you won’t find anywhere else. Available now for $90. [Purchase]
