Your feet fare infinitely better in a good pair of boots when you’re out on the trail. If those boots can pull double duty in the office or your weekend pub crawl without looking like you just steppped off Denali, even better. We’ve been big fans of Forsake’s casual boot line since they first hit the market in 2013. Since then, the original sneakerboots they designed have always had a place on our favorite trails, and are on our feet as we explore mountain towns all over the Western US. For fall 2016, they’re introducing an all new line up for both men and women, and we couldn’t be more excited.Related: How To Pick The Perfect Hiking Boots | The 10 Best Trail Shoes of 2016Duck $140Taking design cues from classic mud and duck boots, Forsake’s Ducks bring this style into the twenty first century. The uppers feature full grain leather, full seam taping, and a waterproof membrane. Combine that with the Peak-to-Pavement outsole that we love, and you’ve got a boot that is ready to pull duty on muddy trails, winter yard work, or provide a little outdoors legitimacy to your fall lumber-sexual look (sorry guys, the flannel and beard in downtown NYC wasn’t fooling anyone).Freestyle $115For a more casual look, the Freestyle is a welcome twist on a chukka style boot – albeit with much more comfort and technical feature packed in than your typical suede boot. The color contrast upper is a full grain suede that has been waterproof treated. The laces and upper cuff feature elastic, making these boots a breeze to get on and off even when tied. They’ll definitely be our choice for exploring some fall slot canyons in the deserts of Southern Utah.For the Ladies: Scrunch $140At first glance, the Scrunch looks more at home in a scifi TV Show than out on the trail. However, even though the uppers depart from typical hiking boot styling, the outsoles are decidedly trail rated. The Peak-to-Pavement design hides a full complement of directional lugs under a an extremely comfortable PU open cell foam footbed. If you’re looking to get your lady friend out on the trail, looking more rugged on her way to yoga, or just more comfortable while strolling through the weekend farmers’ market, you’ll earn serious points for getting her a pair of these.Look for the entire line to hit Forsake’s website and retailers by August 15th. If you can’t wait to drool over a new pair that long, stay tuned for more coverage as we get a deeper look at the entire line at the Outdoor Retailer Show next week.
