The Back to Berkeley Boot from The North Face, a huge hit last winter, has an awesome style along with technical capabilities that make it a popular everyday winter boot. Fashioned after the classic hiking boots of the 1970's, the Back to Berkeley has the right styling keep you cool, while the 100 gram PrimaLoft Eco insulation and HydroSeal exterior keep you warm and dry. The North Face has given this boot a TNF Winter Grip sole for traction on icy sidewalks, and comes in an array of colorways for both men and women.
A perfect selection for the outdoors this winter is the Nike Caldera ACG. A 1994 vintage release, and rarely re-released over the years, this trail and climbing classic is a must-have if you can track a pair down for this season. Your best bet is finding these on auction sites like Ebay or sneaker vendors in Japan.
