These may as well be called the Anti-Hero boots. Sure, they stand a good chance of saving your foot should you happen to sandwich it between a 500lb motorcycle and speeding asphalt—what with their full-grain leather upper, reinforced toe and heel counter, and beefy ankle armor. Or even if you just get caught out in the rain, their full waterproof lining will help keep you dogs bone dry. But for all those heroics, these boots manage to remain looking unassuming and casual.
They promise to be comfortable, too, with a flexible accordion panel at the Achilles and a zippered side-entry feature that allows the user to get the perfectly snug fit with the laces, then bypass the rigmarole of tying and untying with an easy discrete zipper.
