  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

AE from the mass drop that seems to have been forever ago.

These were a great product for the time. Cheap, light as a feather, great suede and a great foot silhouette. They were a sort of bare minimum shoe, but the suede was elegant and buttery soft.

Mine lasted several years before a squeeky heel and the yearn to explore better shoes eventually forced them out of the rotation.

Yeah I don’t wear them often, but whenever I do I always think, I forgot how comfy these are.

I'm looking for some recommendations for boots. I am currently using some Arc'Teryx Acrux TR GTX boots, which I bought in July. I really like them, but the side has just split and now they're not waterproof. I will take this up with the supplier, but in the meantime I need a recommendation as I'm not going to buy the Arc'Teryx again. I realise that the first question is what I use them for. I live in Snowdonia and walk at least a few miles every day. It's wet here so I need a boot that is entirely waterproof. Most walking is on slate or earth paths but there is a bit of tarmac too. There's also some scrambling on rock, but I won't be climbing in them. I can be out all day but distances aren't huge, maybe 10-12 miles, there's a lot of up and down. I don't climb up mountains in the winter so don't need to attach crampons. I had a pair of Scarpa Terra before for years and they were super comfortable but not very grippy. Ideally I don't want something that's going to take a season to break in. I am happy to pay more if I can have something that lasts a few years. Any obvious brands you would recommend as a starting point? Rest of my kit is a mix of ArcTeryx, Haglofs and Berghaus.
i live in the Pacific Northwest in the US. It's wet and cold here, especially in the mountains. I do lots of hiking year round. Most of my days are 18-25 mile hikes with gains in the ballpark of 6-8,000 feet. The point being I use and abuse my footwear when out hiking. I've been wearing Asolo boots exclusively for the last 8-9 years. They perform wonderfully. I swear by my Arcteryx coat and other gear but I have zero experience with their footwear. I would image a hiking or trekking forum may give you a broader range of feedback and recommendations than this particular one. Hope this helps in any way. Take care!
