There is no doubt that last year, the pandemic left a mark on our wardrobes. Our everyday uniforms were metamorphosed from dressed up dinner looks to lounge wear, and a pair of comfortable shoes replaced any resemblance of a heel. That trend is evidently here to stay, as we find ourselves looking for a new pair of lace up hiking boots rather than a party heel for the new season, at least for now.

As we all know, even if your hike is nothing more than a jaunt across the city, it demands a pair of trustworthy boots so that you won't end up blistered after ten minutes. And even though it takes time and effort, for the right boot we're willing to take them out for a walk, then another, then another until finally, we have a pair of boots that fit like a glove.

In order to welcome the autumn season with style, below we have gathered the ten most stylish hiking boots on the market:
