David Tournaire-Beauciel‘s futuristic sneaker label SHOES 53045 unveils their latest silhouette, the Hik’Air boot, inspired by a mix of vintage technical gear, music, and other references from everyday life.

Hik’Air features tan desert tones with a technical upper merging mountaineering, military, and motocross boot details. Below, the shoes get a major lift from the brand’s signature Bump’Air platform soles. While the boots may not be the best for mountain trekking, they’re built to be comfortable walking shoes for urban exploration.

The featured campaign artwork created by French illustrator Apollo Thomas imagines the boots in a mountainous landscape on a futuristic planet. Extraterrestrials and explorers are featured walking the trails and enjoying the great outdoors. To celebrate their latest creation, SHOES 53045 is releasing a drop-themed online mixtape, “TAKE A HIKE,” on Spotify, incorporating a “mix of new and old school sounds perfect for any adventure.”

Like all other SHOES 53045 products, the shoe is completely vegan. Additionally, with each pair sold, the brand will make a donation to plant one tree, with more than 21,000 trees already planted. The Hik’Air retails for $500 USD and launches on July 28 at 9 p.m. EDT on SHOES 53045’s website.
