As utilitarian sneakers rise in stock, New Balance have revived their most iconic hiking boot to align with modern times. The Rainier Remastered is the updated version of the HL710 Rainier, a boot so revered among the hiking community it was worn by the first American climbers to ascend Everest’s North Wall.
The Rainier Remastered maintains the silhouette of the original, but by incorporating New Balance’s advanced technology has become just as suitable to roads as ravines. A ballistic nylon upper shield from scuffs, a Gore-Tex slip will keep the water at bay and a Vibram outsole is more than enough for a full-day hike. If life really is just series of peaks and troughs, then these NBs will undoubtedly aid you on your journey to the top.
The New Balance Rainier Remastered is available now from New Balance online.
