Outdoor Research perfectly clapped back to GQ Magazine’s sexist portrayal of climbers with a photo essay. Never to leave all the fun to the rock slingers, some of the river ladies of OARS Idaho are here to show you why you unequivocally need ditch boots. Now you too can lift heavy things, gallivant in fall leaves, and casually drape yourself over decrepit trucks: all in the name of style.

Real women. Real ditch boots. Real fashion. This Is 2016: A Ditch Boot Story.
