The Lanvin Tall Hiking Boot is a Rugged Look for the French Brand

The French high fashion brand Lanvin is taking its own approach to practical footwear with the Lanvin Tall Hiking boot. The boot has all the traditional characteristics of a hiking boot with the thick sole, rounded toe and five prong laces, but Lanvin has done much to distinguish this item stylistically as well with a "double crossover plastic wrap covering the lacing system as well as a lizard trim contrast on the rubber lug sole," as described on Slamxhype.

The Lanvin Tall Hiking boot is part of the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. This is a great addition to men’s footwear especially in a market so saturated by similar looking pieces. Like the Maison Martin Margiela Two-Toned Leather boot, this boot has gone a different route to the class boot and added its own two tones with the added strap for more flavor. This boot is practical and a rugged approach to their classic boot.
