Come February, we’re racing full tilt through winter, the heart of boot season. It’s the perfect time to loosen your clutch on the handgrip, throttle down, and check the oil on your footwear game—with high-performance measured in versatility.
Our CYTIES team is delivering the high octane goods with a quick rundown of a few of our favorite boots.
The Red Wing Heritage Weekender Chukka is a work-boot in disguise. Engineered with the same iconic high-quality leather and molded into a stylish mid-calf silhouette, this should be a staple in any man’s closet.
Step off the footpeg and into The Moto Boot (in Espresso Grizzly) by Taylor Stitch. This company is making a name for itself as a purveyor of small-batch, built-to-last rugged men’s fashion. True to their flourishing legacy, this variation of the Moto Boot is cut from lightweight, waterproof Grizzly leather and doesn’t disappoint.
Sometimes you need a durable boot that’s both edgy and equipped to class up a joint. The Hollis by Helm (in Black) is a half work-boot, half dress-boot, half-amazing pistol of a shoe that perfectly compliments a tee, dark jeans, and leather jacket.
Whether you’re strolling down the sidewalk or doing street photography, nothing evokes effortless style like a pair of Chelsea Boots. The boot’s sleek, simplistic construction has made it an icon of modern men’s fashion. And, Oliver Cabell’s version remixes the tradition with subtle flair.
If you’re in search of a no-nonsense adventure companion, Danner’s Vertigo 917 hiking boot game is on point. The Vertigo 917, designed to withstand the wear of urban treks or the punishment of more woodsy outdoor expeditions, provides a striking combination of comfort, balance, and stability.
