UPPER

High quality 2.3mm waterproof oiled nubuck with stitch-in molded rubber toe cap and all metal lacing hardware provides durability and longevity. GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane keeps the foot dry and comfortable.

SOLE

Vasque’s proprietary Vibram® Frontier sole is molded with XSTrek compound and is designed to minimize rubber without sacrificing traction, for an exceptionally light sole. The A.S.E. midsole has the lightness of EVA with the durability and abrasion resistance of polyurethane. Conformable EVA pods in the heel and forefoot deliver running shoe-like comfort as well as allowing the outsole to conform around irregularities in the trail. The sole system was designed to maximize efficiency of walking gait and user comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hiking in water Spring and early winter are the times I strap on these boots for hiking. I usually take a 9 and in this instance the 9.5 fit me perfectly, especially since I wear thick socks. They have proven themselves totally waterproof and not terribly heavy, perfect for all day ventures trailspotting in the High Sierra and San Francisco Bay Area. Trail tested by Trailblazer Travel Book author Janine Sprout. November 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boot - narrower toe box Even at a 12W boot size, the toe box crowded my toes to the point of a pinch blister under the pinky toe on a 10 day 65 mile breakin trip -- no weight on the back either. The boots are well suited to cool and cold weather hiking, but summer hiking they do not breathe as well as hoped, leaving very damp feet. When using these I will plan to bring at least one more pair of socks. The metal lace cleats are well constructed, but create high wear on laces. Be prepared - bring a spare set of laces with you, or start your trek with new laces. The 'grippiness' of the cleats is much appreciated - the boots do not require adjusting during the day and the laces do not slip. But they do tear up laces! Outstanding durability and comfort otherwise - after 65 miles, they show no wear other than normal scuffing. I can easily see these going for years and years -- if they fit you properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Boot I got these Vasque boots for my birthday after loving a previously used all-leather pair. I could not be happier. The fit, style, and comfort of the St. Elias are all top notch, and I would recommend this boot to anyone. June 13, 2014
