When looking for new footwear here at The Coolector, we typically seek out something that can expertly straddle the line between style and adventure and these first class Ridgemont Outback Boots are a fine example of this in action. If you’re after some new boots this summer which will be just as at home on the hiking trail as they are at the local tap room, you’ve just found the ideal candidate in the Outback.
Ridgemont are a brand that came about because there was a gaping hole in the market for exactly the sort of boots that they now offer with their Outback. Namely something which can be worn when hiking or heading to the beach, when heading out from breakfast or taking the dog for a walk, when commuting to work or enjoying some craft beers with friends – you get the picture, the Ridgemont Outback Boots are footwear for all occasions.
Boots Built To Last
The first thing you’ll likely notice with the Ridgemont Outback Boots is the fact they are clearly built for a lifetime of adventure and this is reflected in the materials used throughout their crafting. Offering an immensely versatile performance for any occasion, these Outback Boots are wonderfully well made and affordable with a price tag of just £129. They are constructed of robust, 2mm waxed full grain leather, waxed cotton canvas, a bespoke open cell insole and a hi-density 100% rubber, lugged vulcanized outsole and the attention to detail in the design is second to none.
Comfortable and durable, the Ridgemont Outback Boots are designed to stand up to all but the most extreme environments so they will be your ideal adventure ally day in, day out whether you’re hitting the hiking trail or pounding the pavement to work. These effortlessly cool boots from Ridgemont have a lockstitch side seam for an ultra secure outsole bond and a BiFit composite lasting board for enhanced durability, comfort and improved flex in the forefoot.
In addition to all the excellent comfort features of the Outback Boot, each colour way also has a full DWR (durable water repellent) coating so any moisture just beads off the leather and keeps your feet dry and warm on even the most rainy of days. Unlike most other hiking boots on the market, the Outback are not so bulky that you’ll look like you just got finished hiking the Muir trail if you feel like grabbing some breakfast after your morning hike and are cool enough to go with casual outfits as well.
Style Meets Performance
It’s not easy to make boots which straddle the line of style and performance but Ridgemont have definitely hit the nail on the head with these fantastic Outback Boots. Available in a number of different colour ways (but in very limited numbers, so move fast if you want to nab a pair), the quality of this footwear is second to none and it certainly isn’t difficult to see why they sell out so quickly whenever Ridgemont restock.
At just £129, with some pairs currently available for £99, you just won’t get a better pair of boots for the price than the Ridgemont Outbacks. There the sort of boot that you can rely on in a pinch that can do anything you ask of them – whether that be hiking a woodland trail, traverse a river path or simply enjoy some craft beers with friends.
