Modeled after the boots the French Foreign Legion wore in the North African desert in the 1950s, this Palladium reissue is made of full-grain, waterproof leather and ballistic-nylon mesh, with an outsole crafted from a single piece of molded rubber. There are sponge fillers for added comfort – our feet were still fresh after walking five miles on pavement. [$110; palladiumboots.com]
