A heavy pack and rough terrain—an experience to remember or a nightmare in the making? Make sure it’s the former with a breathable, waterproof hiking boot worthy of the task. The Eriksson GTX builds on a three-section midsole incorporating EVA, polyurethane, and a supportive TPU plate. Full grain, 2.2mm waterproof leather offers the durability you’ll need to expand your frontiers. A GORE-TEX® liner, Vibram® Summit sole, and polyurethane internal foam around the ankle just to show we’re serious about getting it done, no matter the terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Support, comfort, waterproof, grip...its got it all I owned the same pair of Vasque boots for 16 yrs when they finally gave out at the seams. The treads were still pretty good after hundreds of miles. These boots had never let me down but I decided to try an alternate brand so purchased another pair of boots which I liked a lot. They sacrificed support for weight. Apparently sacrificing too much support for my ankles as I turned one of them within a week of wearing of them. I wont mention the brand but they were top of the line boots with the latest technologies. So I went back to Vasque buying the Eriksson GTX. I am a 10 but went with the 10.5 wide as it felt better, didnt slip but left enough room for another pair of socks if needed. I am very happy I went with the half-size step up. I broke them in locally for two weeks doing probably 20 miles with my dog on easy trails with roots and rocks and standing water. They felt great in only a short period of time. I had bought them for a trip and hiked for 6 days in the Great Smoky Mountains backpacking for 8-10 mile hikes each day...climbed Mt Leconte, which was really fun, climbed to Charles Bunion and along the AT for short little day hikes. Everything from steep to slight inclines. Water, mud, ice, snow, rain, wind, rocks, 20 degrees to 70 degrees (not kidding), these things were unreal. Never twisted my weak ankles, only slipped when i wasnt paying attention and making bad decisions, my feet were never cold, they were never wet even after walking through shallow rivers (4 inches of steady water). They were great. Only problem was I did get a blister but that is probably my fault for pushing to hard and I have messed up wide feet with bunions so my bones jut out. Still, threw on another pair of socks and they were fine for the next three days (30 miles) or so. I HIGHLY recommend these boots for people who want stability over weight. If you want lightweight for speed, these are definitely not for you. They are pretty heavy. But when you need it, you need it. People love to brag about how light they are blah blah...just do what you need to do to succeed and have fun and get into the woods! April 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot! I've been trail and about town backpacking with these boots for 6 months now, and they are the best I've found for my feet after many years of trying out different boots for my PCT hikes. So far, great comfort and no hint of blisters. I got the wider boot to avoid the toe blisters I've gotten in the past after several 15 to 20 mile days. The real test will come on the longer backpacks I plan for this summer. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Serious, Substantial Hiking Footwear These boots are the real thing. I've been wearing them almost daily around town as well as day hiking in preparation for an upcoming trip to Sedona. Leather boots, as opposed to mesh, usually need more breaking in. I won't say these needed none, but I will say they've been comfortable since day one. No blisters, no hotspots! Last weekend we did some sears bushwhacking on and around the Tamarack River between WS. and MN. I know the Erikssons save me from a sprained ankle a number of times as we made out way through lots of snow-hidden blow-down trunks and the like, as well as some pretty precarious up-and-downs on 20-30 foot tall, steep river banks. Through it all, the legs of my jeans were soaked, and my pack ripped from the thick, thorn-covered brambles, but my feet were warm and dry and injury free. Just an excellent boot, beautifully made. My brother in law has been a professional guide for 20 yeasr-- he was impressed! March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Get these! Best boot ever! Slight rise in the heel, Superfeet insert eliminated it and it fit like a glove. Absolutely no break-in needed. Took em out for a five mile hike right out of the box to get a feel for them ( wore a 50 lb pack) and they embraced my feet like a best friend. My first hike had the original insoles and they were still just fine but I'm picky. The green superfeet insole made this the perfect boot! Get these! Rich September 4, 2014
