Eschewing the goliath, steel-toed, curb-stomp readiness of hiking boots of yore, the LiteTrace Mid Waterproof Hiker ($150) are the funked-up kick you’ve been looking to hit your next trail with. Three-ply laminated waterproof membrane, durable upper mesh and climbing rubber overlays, Pebax midsole foam for durability and comfort; and Green Rubber lug soles for outstanding traction round out the boot’s features. Shedding unnecessary weight and layer bulk, the LiteTrace offers superhero looks (a good thing in this case), which means they weigh just a pound and a half in a modern, minimalist design. Less weight, more distance. That sound good? Your legs are saying thanks.
