Newly launched footwear brand Ridgemont Outfitters has a mission to fill the void for durable shoes that are rugged enough for the hiking trail, while maintaining its stylish look for life in an urban setting. During the Agenda Long Beach show recently, we sat down with creative director Stacy Lowery, who previewed the Ridgemont line-up and offered up more of the story behind the unique shoe.

Ridgemont Outfitters launches with four silhouettes (Mesa, Outback, Crest, Rover), available now at select retailers and online.
