We don’t need to tell you again that climbing and hiking gear is trending. Unless you’ve been living under a rock (ironic) you’ll have noticed that technical gear is everywhere. From climbing-inspired collections from high-end labels to genuine technical gear from brands like Arc’teryx, the swathes of luxury hiking styles range from fully technical recreations to pairs that should probably be kept to the runway.

But while the level of utility differs, almost all of the gorpcore plays we’re seeing are unified on one front: they’re all hyper-modern, even futuristic. That is, apart from Church's Mountain Boots.

Brands like ROA and Demon prove that there’s a wealth of high-end hiking boots that cater to style and performance out there. Finding a pair that doesn’t feature a bold, eye-catching palette or dystopian-style detailing, though, can prove near impossible. That’s where trusty heritage shoemaker Church's comes in.

With a collection defined by high-end leathers, we’re more used to seeing the Church's stamp logo applied to formal styles. The Church's Mountain Boots come as a pleasant surprise. Not only as a departure from the usual sophisticated refinement of the brand’s offering but also as a style that turns the clock back on the gorpcore trend.

Calf leather uppers in tonal black or brown set the understated tone for the silhouette which stands atop a chunky St. Moritz sole unit. Details like the speed-lacing eyelets and rope laces nod to the hiking boot’s roots while the sheer quality of the shoe ensures that it can be worn on hikes or around the city.
