A svelte hiking boot that serves as a testament to how well-made products can endure despite evolving design trends. Launched in 1984, today’s Sundowner is nearly identical to that first boot, with an outer made of a single piece of 2.6-millimeter-thick leather, a Gore-Tex liner, and a rubber outsole. Its loyal fans know it as simply “the best boot ever.”
