Footwear is probably the most important category within any trend. So, with the ‘Gorpcore’ trend being in full hype right now we thought we’d round up the best hiking boots out there. Whether you like the minimalist aspect of the trend which focuses on practicality or just simply want to look like an upgraded 1980’s Patagonia model – we’ve got you covered.  Here are our top 10 hiking boots that should not only keep your feet warm and snug, but will also tie up the rest of your outdoors inspired fit for the months to come.
