Fashion meets technical production with The Heritage Boot from Ridgemont, which allows for a seamless transition from "trail to town." The boots feature a nostalgic aesthetic, resembling what the company describes as something you might stumble upon in an "Eddie Bauer catalog circa 1960." Although old-fashion in form, the boots' functions are made possible through the use of modern technology, providing the comfort, durability, and stability that consumers come to expect in the 21st century.

These throwback boots are meant to be worn with as much confidence on a hiking trip as they are at home, providing for a consistent, look that's aesthetically pleasing while serving a greater function. The boot is made of a waxed brown leather, and paired with water proof lining. The design of the shoe promotes breath-ability, allowing for comfort through any climate.
