Grand Traverse

$119.99 USD MSRP

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.

Ignoring limits…an admirable mantra, but easier said than done. The Grand Traverse is our best effort at making it happen. Embark upon a rocky, loose hike and the dual-density EVA footbed and molded EVA midsole happily oblige. Change plans to an exposed ridge traverse, and fear not—the Vibram® Ibex sole features dual-compound rubber to maintain grip under your toes, but wet-weather traction underfoot and beneath the heel. Climb, descend, hike, repeat…that’s what makes a Grand Traverse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by great approach shoes I have gone through many approach shoes, generally rocky trails and 4th to easy 5th class scrambling. These work great. They have a nice streamlined profile. When I bought I was afraid they would not have enough padding for long hikes on rocky trails but they remain comfortable throughout! February 2, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Grand Traverse I have worn Vasque before with great results and thought I found a great shoe with the Traverse but I noticed the extreme curve shape and sure enough I wore them so much that I developed a sesamoid and a monrtons neuroma in my right foot. I had to go to a podiatrist to get a review and he said No discard them now. Way too much curve which created the above issues. I have never had so much pain. However the sole Vibram was outstanding Sad to let them go and used them less than 5 months. January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All around great hiker Great shoe for canoe trips or late fall hikes. Great traction on rocky and wet surfaces, breathable when dry, waterproof sole, comfortable fit and light! Only waterproof sole and when the inside gets wet the shoe won't dry for a long time. November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe I bought this shoe 1 week before a trip to Japan. I have walked 50-60 miles around Tokyo & Kyoto without the slightest hint of a blister. These shoes are extremely comfortable. I am going to buy another pair when I get home. So far this is the highest performing hiking shoe I have ever purchased. Highly recommend these shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and versatile I could not be more astonished with how far performance footwear has come. These are such a light but stable shoe that I they can be worn on the mountain, street and bike, all in the same afternoon. November 3, 2014
