Boot Review: Garmont Nagevi XCR

You won't find a better all-purpose lightweight boot.

Tough, versatile, even stylish. Testers in our Do-It-All shoe review love the Nagevi GTX (upgraded to the more breathable XCR in 2004) whether lightpacking, scrambling, mountain biking, or dining out. On trips from Utah to Iceland, the low-top shined, thanks to leather reinforcements, rubber toe caps, stable soles, grippy treads, and an uncommon combination of waterproofing and blister-free breathability. The curved last and low-volume toebox make them best for slimmer feet.
