Back in the ’90s, these rugged kicks went urban thanks to the hip-hop community. These days, it’s the activities that they were originally designed for – trekking, climbing, anything adventurous – that have become an “It” urban pursuit. The hiking-inspired renditions from fashion houses this Pre-fall might not equip you for that trip up Mount Kinabalu, but they’ll make you look like you are as you go about your everyday business. (PS. They also look really cool with pretty dresses.)
