Some boots try to straddle the line between daily wear and hiking. These are not those boots. Unapologetically outdoor-focused, the Asics US2-S Gel-Sonoma MT borrows from the 15-50 cross-country spike, with a lock-down that’s far more colorful than subdued. The rugged upper was conceived with help from Kiko Kostadinov Studio, while the base has the same midsole and outsole construction as the Gel-Sonoma trail shoe. Finished with thick, durable Paracord-like laces.
