Selecting Christmas presents isn’t always easy, so we’re here to help. No matter what he’s into, we can say with certainty that every man needs a quality pair of boots. Whether he’s a hiker, a farmer, a businessman or anything in between, Elliott’s has the perfect boot for him.
We know he’ll be excited to rip the wrapping paper off a new pair of Luccheses or Danners, so we’ve created this gift guide to help you find the right boot for every kind of guy.
- Our casual boot pick: Blundstone Unisex Dress Boots
Blundstone boots originated in Tasmania, Australia and many are still manufactured there. The boots are simple, understated leather Chelsea boots that can easily be dressed up or down. They’re more than just your typical everyday boot, though. They feature slip resistant soles, shock absorption and are APMA approved, so he can do more with his day.
Lucchese has been making boots since 1883. Made with quality leather and hand stitched, Lucchese boots are perfect for any man that’s been looking for a dress pair of western boots. We love the new Sutton and Stanley styles for their clean look. Stanley features contrasting chocolate and cognac goat leather with a geometric stich. The Sutton is like the Stanley in style, but it features a suede foot and a leather shaft. Both boots are casual enough for him to wear them daily.
- Our hiking boot pick: Danner Mountain 600
Danner has been making hiking boots since the 1960s. The Mountain 600 features a Vibram midsole and outsole to help with cushioning and traction. They’re made from full grain leather, so they have a very classic look that can easily transition from the trails to the town. They also feature a 100% waterproof barrier that prevents water from getting in but allows moisture to escape, so your man can splash in as many puddles as he’d like. We’re certain that Danner knows what they’re doing when it comes to boots, so you can’t go wrong when gifting a pair.
- Our work boot pick: Thorogood American Heritage Work Boots
Thorogood has been making boots in Wisconsin, USA since 1892. The boots are handcrafted by Union tradespeople. The American Heritage boot is a lace-up leather work boot. It features a Vibram rubber wedge sole. The sole is slip resistant and non-marking to help him work in any condition. The boot also has a shock absorbing insole, and a safety toe version is also available. What’s more? This boot is one of the best-looking work boots we’ve seen, and we’ve seen a lot.
