Revisiting the HL710 Rainier silhouette, which first made an appearance in 1982, New Balance will drop a new iteration of the classic hiking boot, called the Rainier Remastered, in the coming weeks. Originally developed with the help of renowned climber Lou Whittaker and later used by the team that made the first American ascent of the North Wall of Mt. Everest, the HL710 was a breakthrough for the outdoors industry, which had historically only offered bulky, rigid boots.

Paying homage to the impact that the original Rainier had on the market, the Rainier Remastered is crafted from the shoe last and pattern of its predecessor. Construction-wise, a full grain leather and nylon upper is paired with pigskin lining and Vibram outsole. With the original far ahead of its time, only two subtle enhancements were made for the Rainier Remastered: GORE-TEX was added for waterproofing, and the New Balance logo was updated from the original “Flying NB”.

Look out for the hiking boot in a fall-friendly tan/blue colorway as well as a more urban, monochromatic black on November 1 for $180 USD here and take a look at a video of the boots in action below.
