Sometimes, it takes the perfect menswear partnership to make you think differently about a certain category. Take the best men’s hiking boots, for instance. Hiking boots are certainly functional, but they’re not often all that sleek, stylish or rugged, and not often all three of those things at once — until the advent of the Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots, that is. Think of them like your new favorite pair of hiking boots, and an ideal partnership between Portland-based Danner and legendary Pacific Northwest heritage retailer Filson. Does it get much better than that? Certainly not in my book.
After all, the good folks at Filson definitely know how to outfit guys with the best rugged gear for men, from warm wool jackets to dependable denim and of course, A-plus footwear (not limited to just the Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots, of course). The two brands have, of course, teamed up on the best early fall boots, and this partnership returns just in time for you to get off-trail — or at least get to a cabin getaway — for brisk seasonal adventures. Let’s look more at what makes ’em tick, shall we?
The Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots are reliable in all the right ways from the ground up, starting with the flexible, lightweight-yet-grippy Vibram outsole for springy comfort on muddy, slick trails. Plus, the Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots are fully waterproof and inspired by the spirit of the great outdoors connecting the two brands — think of them like the perfect blend of throwback Filson style and modern Danner footwear performance. The end result? Easily some of the best hiking boots for men.
Leather and textile GORE-TEX uppers are blended with mesh for breathability while still keeping that crucial waterproof performance intact. They’re the ideal hybrid design to meet the demands of the trail and the town (the Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots are certainly more like sneaker boots than traditional hikers, for starters).
You can wear these stylish, reliable hikers with Filson’s Tin Cloth Pants or with stretch jeans, and of course, the Filson x Danner Trail 2650 Hiking Boots wear nicely with Filson flannel shirting or your favorite henley. The right mix of performance and style is yours for under $220 with this exceptional pair of collaborative boots.
