Check out 6 of the best boots and footwear for the adventure inclined below:

Naglev Unico Kevlar Hiker – $230

For those on the hunt for adventure this autumn, the Unico Kevlar Hiker are going to tick all of the right boxes. These fast-moving, do-anything survivor boots are robust, versatile and definitely look the part whilst hiking. Their one-piece, sock-like upper will do a bang up job of keeping trail grit out, while the speed-cable laces cinch the foot to its deep-knobbed, super grippy outsole. The sticky rubber toecap will make any sort of terrain a doddle as they protect the front before wrapping to the back, creating even more stability. Adventure ahoy. ($230)

Forsake Waterproof Range Low – $120

Crafted from a waterproof and breathable membrane plus seam-sealed leather construction which stops any water from entering the shoe, the Forsake Range Low sets a new standard for low-top sneakerboots. The Vibram Megagrip outsole delivers great grip on any surface and in any conditions and they are waterproof, robust, supportive, and comfortable as hell — yep, they definitely tick all our boxes at Coolector HQ when it comes to sneakerboots that can function just as well on the pavement as they can on the way to a summit. ($120)

La Sportiva TX3 – $135

Italy’s La Sportiva has given rise to many a generation of outdoorsmen as they’ve climbed some of the world’s most uncompromising peaks, and the La Sportiva approach shoe  Tx3 carries on this impressive legacy. A heavy-duty hiker through and through, the medium-lugged outsole is multi-directional, which means that it bites in on the ascent and, when heading back downhill again, will make use of its reverse lugs to keep your speed in check. Enthusiasts of the La Sportiva climbing shoes will certainly recognise the trademark curving lace pattern, as well as the climbing-inspired sticky rubber toe cap for extra protection and comfort. ($135)

Teva Arrowood 2 Mid Boots – $150

With plenty of impressive features, the Teva Arrowood 2 Mid Boots are going to offer the ultimate in performance and comfort for hikers and walkers this autumn. They are lightweight, robust, quick-drying and will make sure you can tackle any terrains you come across. The Arrowood 2 Mid is the latest version of Teva’s lightweight trail shoe which truly is crafted for adventure. It’s chock full of cutting edge materials such as waterproof leather uppers and Teva’s signature Float-Lite outsole tech. This is joined by a beefed up rubber sole for tackling rugged terrain. Teva brought all of their sandal, hiker and hybrid knowledge to the forefront with this one to deliver a piece of footwear that’ll keep you swift on your feet no matter where the trail takes you. ($150)

Danner Mountain 600 Low Boots – $90

Understated in design but unparalleled in performance, the Danner Mountain 600 Low Boots are going to deliver the paramount hiking performance this summer. Danner’s Heritage line of boots aims to join together their classic styling with lightweight innovation and they have accomplished it with aplomb. The 600 model is a fine example of their finest footwear and uses the best in contemporary technology and materials. They have hewn a boot that hearkens back to classic boot style but incorporates best-in-class comfort and performance. This version of the Mountain 600 features a low-profile 3″ rise for an even lighter shoe and comfortable fit. ($90)

Salewa Mountain Trainer GTX – $199 

About as rugged as they get, these Salewa Mountain Trainer GTX Boots have got a really eye-catching aesthetic and wonderfully well made construction. Salewa have been outfitting explorers and mountaineers with packs for almost a century now, and in 2005 they broke new ground with a new range of robust yet lightweight trail shoes which can stand up to more or less anything from traipsing through mud to hiking over the largest boulders to scrambling up a scree incline. The Mountain Trainer Mid GTX is a lightweight men’s summer alpine trekking boot with a durable suede and fabric upper alongside waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX protection. ($199)
