Hiking: It's all about the shoes



PHOTOS BY DAVID JAAN

 

Our quarantined lifestyle limited our activities and shifted our outlook on fashion. Now, with sunny days and fewer restrictions, we can turn our attention to the great outdoors for a welcome respite from mandated isolation. This month, Spree Style gears up for hiking with friends and seeing parts of Western New York we may never have visited. We’re thinking on our feet and enjoying the wonderful recreational opportunities that local parks and trails have to offer.

 

This shoot features footwear by Forsake. The Boston and Buffalo-based brand won half a million dollars in the 2018 43North competition for its rugged hiking boots enhanced by high-tech sneaker construction. They’re the right additions to a 2020 summer wardrobe.
