Forsake Contour Boot Review: A Slip-on Hiking Boot

forsake contour boot

This stylish slip-on style shoe is defined as a “sneakerboot,” which is right up my alley. Many of the trips I take require some sort of athletic attire, yet I don’t usually have room for bulky hiking shoes and trainers. I tested out the Forsake Contour boot on a recent trip and loved it. While these shoes might not be suitable for a super-strenuous hike, they’re perfect for an active vacation, a travel day, or walking around a city.

Forsake Contour Boot Review: 

Price and Where to Buy: $120 on Forsake’s website and Amazon.

How the Forsake Contour Boot Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. If you’re looking for a hybrid and stylish sneaker-hiking boot, then you’ll love the Contour. The upper part is weather-resistant, so you’re not sacrificing style for stability. The bottoms are supportive as well, with directional inner lugs for grip on loose terrain and wide outer lugs for traction on hard surfaces.
  • Value: 7/10. At just over $100, you’re paying for quality and versatility here.
  • Durability & Portability: 9/10. The Contour boot was comfortable when tested out on a few hiking trails and didn’t feel bulky when I wore the shoes out to dinner and at the airport.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. I received a handful of compliments on the shoes and had no problem matching outfits to go with them.

Final Verdict: The Contour Boot is trendy, comfortable, and supportive, and goes with just about any casual outfit.
