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 4 out of 5 by different shoelaces These shoes are comfortable and lightweight. I ordered the ones with orange shoelaces and I wish they came with shoelaces that are closer to the color of the shoe. I am on the lookout for new shoelaces now. May 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by An amphibius approach shoes. Been using this pair for the past 15 mths averaging two weekend outings per month. Typically tracking through jungle, streams along with bouldering all in one trip. Vibram soles performed exceptionally well being "tacky" on wet mossy stream rocks, holding its edge when bouldering and cushioned well on fast trail running descends. Adequate drainage and toes protection. Unique lacing system on heels helped to secured shoes on feet when climbing. Noticed on long downhill runs, toes felt slightly pinched at the end. Not much wear and tear except small separation between outer and mid-sole on the heels. Overall, a very unique and capable pair of shoes. Vasque, please keep this highly competent model going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe! I just came back from 3 weeks in Colombia on a birdwatching trip. This shoe was perfect for both wet and cold, hot and steamy, mountain trails and paved roads, 12 hour days and I wore them to dinner. May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great All-Purpose Shoe This shoe has become my go-to when it comes for hiking and everyday running. I've been wearing these shoes for a little over a month, and have no complaints whatsoever. I've hiked away several weekends in these, and they've held up to my rigorous benchmarks. The fit is probably a little smaller than average, but I have a slightly narrower foot, and they fit perfect. The Vibram sole handles exceptionally well with all surfaces (aside for those wet rocks, which seems to be a problem no shoe has been able to tackle#, while being a very breathable shoe #thanks to Texas weather, I've gotten to experience all four seasons in these shoes, and they've handled quite well in all of them). I also use them for my morning runs, and they're very comfortable, and light. I would recommend these for anyone who plans to hike mild to moderate trails, enjoys jogging or running, or is looking for a good everyday athletic shoe. April 3, 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 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 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
