Are you on the hunt for some holiday gift ideas? Need some gift options to fill out your list for Santa Claus? Or are you just looking to treat yourself to a nice pair of leather boots? Whatever the case is, I’ve got you covered with this roundup including some of the best leather boots for men.

These range from leather Chukka boots (first) to some hiking boots, dress boots, and work boots. Every guy needs a pair (or several pairs) of leather boots and these will make for an excellent holiday gift this year. Let’s get to it.

First up is the Olukai Hawai’Ilao Manu Ihu boots. These are probably my favorite leathers released in recent memory. I’ve been rocking these for a few weeks now and they are amongst the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. They look perfect with jeans and chinos. The upper is made from a soft nubuck leather, the lightweight compression molded EVA midsole feels great, and the supportive single-density poured PU anatomical footbed has a microfiber cover that’s moisture-wicking and odor-absorbant.

Next, we see the Sorel Madson Hiker Waterproof boots which are currently on sale for $161 when they usually sell for $190. Sorel is one of the most-trusted names in boots and these hikers can be worn on the trails or the wet/icy streets this Fall and Winter. They are seam-sealed for enhanced protection from getting your feet wet and the molded EVA footbed offers a very comfortable ride.

Moving on we see the Danner Vertigo 917 boots which are both 100% waterproof AND breathable thanks to the GORE-TEX® liners that ensure your feet stay dry from wet weather and mud while still getting to breathe. They have a Vibram® 917 outsole made with an XS Trek rubber compound for unrivaled comfort and stability. These are lightweight and won’t hold your feet down which means you’re less likely to trip on obstacles out there on the trails (or streets).

The Rhodes Footwear Dean Boot in ‘Rust’ leather actually come in nine different leather colorways for you to choose from if you’re looking for something lighter or darker. These are boots you can wear all day every day thanks to the Texon® insole with thermal insulation and anti-shock foam layer. You’ll never have the sense that you’re walking in rigid leather boots with these but will always be comfortable, and for that reason, I love these.

Last up are the Mark Albert Uptown Boots, an exclusive colorway over at Huckberry. These are handmade in Somerset, Pennsylvania using a double-oiled leather outsole with stacked leather heel and rubber heel insert for grip. The soft pigskin lining keeps your feet comfortable in ways you’d never imagine if you haven’t had a pair of boots this nice before.
