Scarpa Mystic Lite

Best for City or Trail Adventures

Although a suede top gives the Mystic a casual appearance, this lightweight hiker (12.8 ounces in a Euro size 42) is anything but: A sticky Vibram sole allows it to run over rock without the pinch and pain of climbing shoes. A thick rubber guard protects against stubbed toes and also comes in handy finding holds while bouldering. [$119; scarpa.com]
