A pair of handmade hiking boots can cost as much as $750, but right now boots by a small Italian brand called Naglev are on sale at Huckberry. One of our favorites from the brand, the Unico Hiker, is unlike any other hiking shoe available (it’s also on our list of the best hiking boots). And right now, it's on sale for 30 percent off, knocking the price down to $168.
Naglev is based in the Alps, where outdoor footwear was invented, and it created the Unico to function as a middle ground between a hiking boot and a trail running sneaker. It calls to mind approach shoes (sturdy, low-cut hiking shoes typically used by rock climbers who face long treks through technical terrain on the way to a climb), but it’s built much differently. The upper is made of one single piece of Kevlar fabric — yes, the same stuff used to make body armor — and its inside is lined with a sock-like wool liner. This construction creates a remarkably durable shoe that’s unexpectedly comfortable and entirely unique.
The Unico might not be for everyone, and we realize that. If you like what this hiking sneaker has to offer but you were hoping for something with a bit more ankle support and/or lower extremity coverage and protection, Naglev thought of that, too. You can get everything the Unico offers in a more robust package in the hi-top, military-inspired Compat WP, which is also 30 percent off today during Huckberry's Black Friday sale — bringing it down from $298 to $208. Whichever shoe suits you best, the bottom line is: Naglev's shoes are rarely discounted, so take advantage of these deals while you can.
