Turning 20 this year, Baffin was inspired by founder Paul Hubner’s father, Peter, who worked alongside local Inuit in Canada’s Arctic region to source material for creating footwear with a multi-layered structure. Inspired by this innovative structure, Baffin offers footwear that is ready to take on Canada’s toughest climes. While city streets and hiking trails are considered a stroll in the park for this brand, adventure-seekers can put the brand through its paces and be sure their footwear will hold out—in fact, the founder does just that himself. Explore Canada’s great outdoors with free access to Canada Parks this year with Baffin in tote. Take to Canada’s trails with Baffin’s Swamp Buggy hiking shoes ($94.99, baffin.com) or toss a pair of Packables rain boots ($94.99, baffin.com), which easily fold into a pouch for convenient travel, in your bag for wetter days on the West Coast.
