The perfect weekend travel boot!


The perfect weekend travel shoe!
Your throw-everything-in-a-duffel-and-get-the-hell-out-of-town plans have a problem… your shoes!

A quick and timely escape can be easily scuppered by bulky footwear (especially if you’re trying to stuff three pairs into a weekender)


The shoe is basically a contemporary take on a classic desert boot, hand-stitched in Italian suede with a crepe rubber sole. Folds up neatly to about a quarter of the size when you’re not using ‘em. Weighs less than 500 grams. And, as we noticed in our test run, works best without socks.

In fall, they’re a great crossover between casual and more formal ensembles. If you’re traveling, you can get away with these being your only pair — though they also work as a hidden backup in your duffel.

Available in black, tan, navy and charcoal, the shoes start at a lightweight $159. From HOBES!
