In recent years we’ve seen the fashion world go GORP, co-opting classic outdoorsy styles and silhouettes to the point where brands like Arc’teryx and Salomon have become synonymous with streetwear. Now, we may be seeing a surprise reverberation—outdoor brands looking to high fashion’s outdoor interpretations for inspiration. Case in point, the new Teva Geotrecca hiking boot.
Like a Balenciaga sneaker remixed with a Hoka trail runner, this new “modern hiker” is an ankle-height, lace-up boot available in men’s and women’s sizing and a range of attractive and Earthy colorways. The all-new Teva boot design is at its core a lifestyle hiking boot, boasting a lightweight upper with integrated waterproof bootie and leather accents, anchored to a grippy, cushy outsole for “exceptional stability.” Recycled and certified sustainable materials are featured throughout.
Designed for year-round use in a range of conditions—from sidewalks to alpine trails—the Geotrecca waterproof boots are billed as light enough for spring and summer conditions and rugged enough to handle wetter, colder conditions, too.
If you’re looking to replace an old pair of Blundstone-style Chelsea boots with some something more functional, something trending, these Teva hiking shoes seem a solid choice. For a more proven Teva hiking boot, look to the Ridgeview. (While you’re at it, check out Teva’s new ReEmber Mid quilted slip-on house/camp shoes for staying cozy this winter.)
