After collaborating with ALYX on a rugged footwear capsule last year, Italian hiking brand ROA has revealed its latest collection of hardwearing boots. The Fall/Winter 2017 collection sees a number of the brand’s silhouettes, including the sneaker-like Neal, the Daiquiri and the hi-top Andreas, reworked with new textures and materials for the upcoming season.
ROA boots come with a range of technical elements, such as a chunky Vibram sole, the use of Kudu skin for its high water-repellency, and the same fabric that is used in bulletproof vests. Other features of the shoes include a padded tongue and heel-tab, with each silhouette available in a tonal black and grey colorway as well as other options — such as brown leather with red detailing or a red nylon upper. ROA’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection is available now from retailers including Slam Jam‘s Milan store or London’s Browns, with prices ranging from around £240 GBP (approx. $325 USD) to £350 GBP (approx. $475 USD).
