A nylon injected lasting board is tuned to be stiffer in the heel and midfoot for stability while allowing natural flex in the forefoot.

Unique, Vasque proprietary, Vibram® Summit sole is designed with a mix of geometric and organic lugs, increasing ground contact and stability. A stable yet responsive dual density polyurethane midsole assures all day comfort as well as control on demanding trail sections.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Boots and then they weren't I bought these boots to replace a pair of heavy all leather boots that I loved but sadly, after 20 years, my feet got bigger and they no longer fit. I do a lot of backpacking so I wanted something heavy and rugged. These boots lived up to that. My problem though, is that the sole has separated from the leather upper and now flaps when I walk. I did not expect that to happen after only a few years and a few hundred miles. I have a big trip planned for this summer and am not happy that I'll have to break in a new pair of boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 years for ten years I have had these boots the most amazing boots I have ever had. I'm just happy they still make them so I can get more. I have used them for hiking, backpacking also fishing and hunting these boots took a beating from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Durable boot I have taken these all over the world, hiked rocky conditions, desert, and hiked down rivers in them. Mine are 5-6 years old and they really stand the test of time. The one thing I should note is that I use Bucks on them a couple times a year to keep the leather in shape and waterproof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Down to the nub I bought a pair of Vasque Summits from REI in 2010 or so, and I've considered getting the soles replaced here in Vancouver, BC, though for the value of the shoe that may be uneconomical First off the bat, these proved to be a comfortable pair of boots, among the more comfortable of any shoes I have, despite being backpacking boots. They plodded well through backpacking trips, hiking trips, frequent winter use, outdoor working, and the occasional glacier travel, and given their frequency of use held up extremely well - certainly a favorite boot. Water resistance continues to be tenacious, though some holes have eroded into the edge of the tongue. There were a couple hang-ups - the eyelets seemed to shred laces. The ultimate problem was the toe-capping coming lose on the right-boot, which got worse over time until last weekend the toe-cap finally gave out (though the left boot is in much better condition. These boots are worn, the tread is bald and I've finally had to retire them, though I am loath to give them up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good fit for me I bought these primarily to wear to work, I'm in industrial sales. For roughly the first two months or so they kept a bruise on my right ankle bone. The leather is extremely stiff, and the soles provide minimal cushioning on concrete/asphalt. I went back to the Red Wing store where I bought them, and the owner, Ryan, was very sympathetic that they were uncomfortable, and suggested insoles. Reluctantly I dropped $60 for the insoles he recommended, on top of the $220 to buy them. The aftermarket insoles are substantially thicker and have changed the way they fit, now my toes rub on the inside of the toe box, and I have developed a pain on the outside of my right ankle like something is being strained when I wear them. After 6 months of trying to make them work and spending almost $300 I have accepted that these are just not the boots for me. The quality seems top tier, just not a good fit for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine for the first 500mi I've previously split the sole from the uppers in other brands, so I gave Vasque a try.These boots sized well and didn't cause any issue during the break-in period. For the first 500mi on the boots they were fantastic, aside from demolishing shoe laces every 100mi (there are rough eyelets on the lower boot). However, right around the 500mi mark the boots started to cause extreme irritation, causing serious blisters on the trail (new to me). I tried all sorts of lacing techniques and sock combination with no avail. It turns out the issue is with the gore-tex liner. It completely separated from the rest of the boot and has started to rub in the toe box and the heel. In normal walking I can feel the liner in the toe box fall and I have to push it back in place. I would have expected 1000-1250mi out of these boots. This is a shame as the leather uppers and soles are in excellent shape and are good for another +500mi. I guess I'll be trying something new for my new boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hoping for some relief I've spent a week in these boots, and while my feet feel great, my ankles are taking a beating. I really want to like these boots, but there are some spots on my ankles that I can't seem to get any relief. I've tried lacing a few different ways to no avail. Is this a common problem with the Summit GTX? IF this is truly part of the break in process, I'll try to tough it out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time is indeed a charm The first pair unfortunately had a hook pull loose, but the second pair has been great. After Hundreds of miles they are finally starting to break in. Hey lets face it, these boots are going to last me a very very long time. Some people complained of squeaking, but I like it. Sounds like a saddle. I went through the Beartooth Mountains this last summer with 50 pounds on my back. The boots kept me from twisting an ankle a number of times. They gave me grip on rock, dirt, and mud. My feet stayed very nicely dry. They are a bit heavy, but that was the price I wanted to pay for stability of my ankle. I also have an issue with Plantar Facitiis, the boot soles supported the foot perfectly.
