A beefed up, rugged interpretation of the classic chukka, Merrell's Realm boot can take a beating. Using tough, full grain leather in lieu of suede and a sturdy performance sole for support and flexibility, it has enough traction to tackle major hiking trails and enough cushion to keep you comfortable all day. Is it a true chukka boot? That’s something you can ponder from the top of the mountain. [Realm Boot, $150, merrell.com]
