One of the Most Anticipated Hiking Boots of the Year Was Just Announced

Based in the Alps, Naglev is a young brand with a unique take on hiking. It's finally getting ready to release a new boot.

The strangest entry into Gear Patrol's list of The Best Hiking Boots of 2020 is undoubtedly Naglev's Unico Hiker, which has held its place there for more than a year. The hiking shoe is unlike any other — its primary ingredients are Kevlar and wool — but it takes to trails with unparalleled durability and comfort. Now Naglev is finally expanding on that award-winning design by introducing a full-sized hiking boot called the Unico Combat WP.

Like the Hiker, the Combat WP is distinct with its Kevlar upper, which is both waterproof and highly abrasion-resistant. The interior consists of a sock-like wool liner, which provides comfort despite the boot's rock-proof construction. The hiking boot also includes a footbed made of leather and coconut fibers and a dual-density EVA midsole — the same kind you'll find in many hiking boots and running shoes — and a natural rubber outsole with aggressive lugs.

The Naglev Unico Combat WP hiking boot is available for preorder now, and the company expects to deliver it to customers in October, just in time for fall hiking.
