a four-season must have
The Marlow from Element (part of their stellar Emerald Collection) is so dialed in, it almost hurts. Really nice construction, super clean stitching and lines, and finished with a leather that has worn in very nicely over the several months I've had them. While I wouldn't recommend relying on this particular Vibram sole for hiking or any other high-stress applications, it's super comfortable and probably best suited for urban trekking. Can't go wrong with a pair of Wayfarers and your favorite skinny jeans.
