Tough enough for big adventures, yet comfortable enough for day hikes, the Vasque St. Elias successfully combine classic, burly leather hikers with new light-and-fast technical shoes. Made from cowhide, they weigh just over three pounds and feature a breathable Gore-Tex liner, as well as a trail-gripping Vibram sole. And unlike many big leather boots, they require no break-in time. [$190; vasque.com]
