Ain't no mountain high enough for this hiker! It's got multidirectional lugs on the outsole that grip uphills, downhills, and uneven terrains.

"I'm sensitive to blisters, and these are the only shoes I didn't have to break in," says one tester. "They're perfect for rugged ground or a flat, fast hike." ($100, keenfootwear.com)
Footnote: Hikers worry about keeping their footing, especially Lara Rosenbaum, 35, who has an old ankle injury. "After a snowy two-hour hike, I knew there was no way my ankle would roll in the Keen Voyageur," says Lara, who lives in Salt Lake City.
