Handmade in Italy by a family that’s been making boots for six generations, these chukkas ($145) are the best damn value on the market: premium European hides combined with memory foam footbeds and eco-friendly rubber soles. Each pair is foot-friendly right out of the box.
Da Vinci called the foot “a masterpiece of engineering,” but to access its full potential, we need to let them perform as they were meant to. Lems’ Boulder Boot ($115) does just that.
Ever heard of ‘Espadrille’? It’s okay — we hadn’t either. But for centuries they’ve been carrying countless pairs of feet across the globe, including Salvador Dali’s during his heyday.

For their latest wallets, Ridge turned to polycarbonate — a battle-tested material used in the F-22 Raptor’s cockpit, prized for its next-level resilience against impact, scratches, and extreme temperatures.

If you’ve ever seen an episode of Deadliest Catch, then you’ve seen XTRATUF (read: ‘Extra Tough,’ or ‘The Alaskan Sneaker’).

Barebones’ Hori Hori Gardening Tool ($20) was built to do it all. Digging, trenching, planting, chopping, measuring — even opening the celebratory beer after a session in the dirt.
