Here we have Birkenstock’s “Midland” Boot. (They’re not sandals, but they’re lovely!) The fine folks at Birkenstock have furnished us with a perfectly glossy black leather boot and a rugged black suede boot. Each pair has nice, thick laces and D-Ring loopholes that are perfect for actually lacing your boots for hiking (and a trademark Birkenstock-style outsole.) Don’t just take them on the trail; wear them with your favorite cargos, khakis or cords and hit the town. The rugged look but soft feel of these boots should be enough to keep them on your feet for years to come.
