The Ridgemont Mesa is our twist on a classic mid-top chukka. What makes it special is that we've used a high quality oiled suede to make sure that, even though it looks unassuming, it will take whatever you throw at it. It also features our hi-density 100% rubber, lugged vulcanized outsole, a gusseted tongue and Ortholite innersole, making The Mesa a truly, all-terrain vehicle. But don't just take our word for it. outside magazine must think so too, because they just voted the Mesa, "Best Day Hiker" in their Spring'15 Buyers Guide. And they know a thing or two about what to wear on your feet.
