Fresh off a star-studded revival with Aimé Leon Dore, New Balance treats us to an in-line release of the beloved Rainier Hiking boot. Developed and used by the first American team to scale the treacherous North Wall of Mount Everest the Rainier is built to take a beating. Constructed with a bonded mesh base the upper is layered with gorgeous tan leather while extra padded leather wraps the collar. Metal hiking eyelets lock down the tongue while NB logo detailing is debossed on the laterals. Underfoot we have a thick black midsole that shrouds the toe while thick trail lugs are embedded in the outsole.
