Shoes for Everyday Adventures

View all 8 Photos

The folks at California-based clothing brand Ridgemont call themselves “Adventure Outfitters,” but their smart attire doesn’t resemble your typical hiking gear. Designed to transition seamlessly from the rugged outdoors to everyday life, their new Monty shoe revamps the classic hiker style from the 70s and 80s in a functional yet stylish silhouette. “We don’t want to replace your hard-core hiking boots,” says founder Stacy Lowery. “We just want you to wear our shoes instead of sneakers when you go camping or on a light hike so you’ll quit falling on your ass.” Available in both a hi and lo model, the Monty line offers an accessible way to get from point A to point B. Oiled suede and high grade nylon make them look like a chic pair of kicks while an exposed EVA midsole, traditional half-cup outsole, and heel stabilizer guarantee maximum balance and comfort. “Our product gets you through the day, whether that means a weekend surf check, a strenuous hike, or your daily commute to your local breakfast spot…without looking like you’re preparing to summit Denali.” Starting at just $95 (lo), the line is affordable, good-looking, and ready to go. Available here in a variety of colors to take you from hiking to the highline.
