Based in Northern Italy where the tradition of crafting and selling footwear dates back to the Middle Ages, the Morlin family has spent six generations making shoes, giving them the unique insight and expertise needed to ultimately deliver one of the most advanced pairs of outdoor sneakers on the planet with the Natural Glocal Evolution — or Naglev — Unico Hiker.

Crafted atop a special rubber compound with an ultra-grippy lug pattern, the Unico Hiker features single-piece Kevlar fiber uppers that boast a seamless one-piece construction that eliminates weak points or key stress areas. In addition to being water-resistant, the Kevlar uppers are also fortified via an abrasion and oil-resistant TPU rand. Secured via an integrated speed cable lacing system, these trail-running-inspired hikers are also outfitted with footbeds made from a combination of tanned leather and coconut fibers, dual-density EVA foam midsoles, and a moisture-wicking wool sock liner. What’s more, the Unico Hiker’s immense versatility, durability, and traction genuinely make for some of the best hiking boots on the market, and their muted but fashion-forward appearance makes them no less at home in the city. And, between the 14 eyelet speed lacing system, their anatomical design, and the fact this piece of footwear is sold in European sizes, these Hikers are able to achieve an incredibly precise fit. Winner of a prestigious Outdoor Industry Award, the Naglev Unico Hiker is available now through our friends at Huckberry for $230.
