Cole Haan Air Hunter – $154.32* ($228) | Allen Edmonds Cortina – $199.00 ($350)
*You’ll need to use the code BOOTSALE at checkout to get this price from Endless.
These are not the bland hikers you wore in the Scouts. Instead, they’re a blend of rugged enough for a short hike construction (maybe longer?) and drool worthy style details like that plaid around the top of the CH.
It’s hard to imagine that either pair would get you from Maine to Georgia on the Appalachian trail. But if you’re the type who wants a pair of go-to, good looking boots worthy of pre-dinner hikes and relaxed trips to the mountains, then maybe these are worth a shot.
The Cole Haan is a recent addition to the CH lineup. They’re made in India, and being that they’re on sale at Endless with the code BOOTSALE, they could be at your door before Christmas.
The Allen Edmonds look incredible. Made in Italy, simple, and can be recrafted. Marked down as part of the ongoing Allen Edmonds Holiday Select Styles Sale.
Time to choose. If you had to pick one, which would you lace up and wear? Or is it Gore-Tex or nothing for you? Leave your take below…
