These BEDWIN x Danner boots are a rugged, outdoor winter look for either men or women.
The hiker look is decidedly in again this winter, as it has been for the past few. While footwear options like Timberland boots have been co-opted by stylish, streetwear-loving women, these BEDWIN x Danner mountain boots have several design touches that make it clear that they're meant to be worn by both genders. A thick, slightly wedged sole as well as brightly colored laces, a soft, brown suede outer and an elegantly tailored silhouette give these warm, practical boots a feminine feel. The boots are a collaboration between Tokyo designer BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS and Portland-based Danner boots.
In the past, stylish streetwear has largely been designed for men, inspired by male-dominated rap and hip hop culture, although women have embraced it and made it their own. As female musicians see increasing success in these genres, fashion is following suit, creating pieces that are truly meant for women.
