A solid three-season hiking boot is a staple in every outdoor enthusiast’s closet, and when you’re ready for a new pair, I suggest the Zephyr GTX Mid TF from LOWA. Here’s why: it’s light enough to not wear you out on a long hike, but sturdy enough to repel rocks and thwart twisted ankles. It’s waterproof and breathable, and gets good traction on a variety of surfaces. Quality construction with leather and Cordura means this boot will last a while. And it comes in solid, earthy colors, so you can wear it hunting, too. Need I say more? $200; lowaboots.com.
