The must-have footwear trend for men this winter…and how to style it

When you think of catwalks, you think of the newest styles and chic, sleek clothing designed in the fashion capitals of Paris and Milan. Most likely, you don’t automatically think of hiking boots and clothing as a fashion staple.

Hiking to the height of fashion

The outdoor pursuit of hiking usually involves clumpy, often unflattering gear, focusing more on the practicalities rather than the fashionable aspects. Yet, hiking has become this season’s surprising theme on the catwalks, carrying with it a utilitarian style.

Footwear that was at first designed for tackling the muddy, uneven and unstable conditions of hill trails and mountain tracks, is now undergoing a major facelift. While retaining their practical and functional uses, this new style of shoes are incredibly stylish to boot (pun intended!).

Big catwalk names like Ermenegildo Zegna and MSGM have been transforming the outdoor gear into high fashion this season, pairing new style fleeces and anoraks with some sneakerboots and flatform boots. GQ covered Louis Vuitton and Gucci’s contribution to the trend here – https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/gallery/autumn-winter-18-trends-for-men . Even Armani pulled out the combat boots – cementing the hiker-look as this season’s big deal.

How to wear the look

You may well be taking in the trails across Ben Nevis, or even jet-setting off for a nice city break – either way, hiking boots will be a great choice for you this winter. But what to wear with them?

First of all, it’s winter – layers are always a winner. Whether you pair up some mens designer shirts or some chunky knit jumpers with a sleek pair of jeans, or a flannel shirt with some wool trousers, go for the layered look to stay fashionable and cosy at the same time.

While these stylish boots may not come with the technical aspects of real hiking boots, they are beautifully made of leather and will mostly be waterproof and comfortable.

Enhance your wardrobe, teaming up Mens designer shirts with something just as rugged-looking as your boots, to nail the wintery statement look.

By investing in some warm, resilient clothing to match, you can show off your incredible, luxurious hiking boots to their full potential. Not only are they going to keep your feet warm, dry and protected, they will ensure you feel confident and on trend throughout this winter season.
