10 Crossover Hiking Boots to take from City to Mountain

Since migrating from Europe to Australia, there’s one thing I still can’t cope with too well: Christmas in summer. If I could even slightly afford to fly to other side of the world right now, you’d find me somewhere in the Alps enjoying Christmas in the snow covered mountains as it’s meant to be.

Unfortunately for me, that’s not in the cards this year. But hopefully it is for you. If you’re lucky enough to have a trip planned hopping from icy Christmas markets to cold day hiking trail and anything in between, you’ll need some handsome boots that will carry you anywhere. Here’s a small curated collection of 10 Crossover Hiking boots that will do just that.
