The Pachena Bay is our rarely seen take on the calssic Italian-style hiking boot. Designed by Glen Viberg and introduced in the early 90s, it has a taller profile than our Hiker and features a signature padded collar and lace-to-toe gusseted tongue. With this release we attempted to produce the perfect boot for our temperate rainforest climate. The upper is crafted from an industrial rubber-bonded leather which easily sheds water and dirt. We chose a Commando Sole for traction in all conditions and a Black Storm Welt for further waterproofing. The result is a distinctly modern looking boot with the functional capabilities of performance hiking footwear. Purchase the Pachena Bay Black Rubberized here.
