This year has seen a wide variety of new boots introduced to the world. Both major and minor manufacturers from around the world used significant technology improvements both in materials and the manufacturing process to enhance long-trusted designs and create bold new boots that are lighter, stronger and more comfortable than anything we’ve ever known.

Most manufacturers highlighted improvements in boot soles and tread patterns as the biggest technological advancements, which they said added strength and rigidity while cutting weight. Better waterproofing and breathability are also trending right now. Here are 21 new boots to help you go farther than ever before.
