Some adventures call for more. Bigger pack, more grit, longer days…and boots crafted with soul. We use 2.6mm waterproof full grain leather from one of the few remaining tanneries in the US. It’s gorgeous, it’s tough, it’s classic. Vibram’s® Summit sole features lugs that grip throughout your stride, with dual-density EVA and polyurethane between you and the trail. Heirloom boots worthy of your best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots! I've had these boots for 3 years now with countless miles on them in every imaginable terrain. Snow, rocks, mud, dirt, hills, water, etc. and they have never let me down! Then only time they have been wet on the inside is when I got caught in an absolute downpour of a rainstorm in shorts and the water ran down from the top around my ankles. I clean them and put mink oil on them after every trip which has served them well. They don't look like new, I've replaced the laces several times and am now using brown 550 paracord which has lasted longer than any others. I am an Assistant Scoutmaster for my boys Boy Scout Troop and we do monthly trips, most of which require a lot of hiking and backpacking. Our trip planned for 2016 is a 5 day backpacking trip in the Rockies and will summit Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive on consecutive days. I'll be buying my 2nd pair of these soon so they are well broken in before the trip. July 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Solid Hiker For about two years now, I've worked for Red Wing Shoe Co., and I've gotten familiar with literally hundreds of different boots, including many hikers. The Summit is, as a boot, one of the better hiking boots I've ever put on my feet. The leather is tough, yet supple, and the Gore-Tex liner does exactly what it needs to. The only issue that I had was the sole. Excellent grip and stability, but I found that after only a few ascents up some of Colorado's larger mountains, the rubber compound had begun to breakdown and fall apart. That being said, as a hiking boot for less rocky terrain, it's a wonderful boot. July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 Years of Heavy use. I have had these boots for 6+ years. They have been used for backpacking in the ADKs and Catskills several times a year and also for year round field work as a wildlife technician. If you want a pair of boots that lasts and will be as comfortable as the day you got them, then these are it. Worth every penny. Mine are so worn that the souls are almost treadles and the leather is worn thin, but they still fit better and feel better than 3 other cheap pairs I have tried. I am currently saving for a new pair because I will never ware another pair of boots after these. 100% recommend to anyone backpacking or hiking or working outside. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boot I've had I'm a geologist in Canada and my pair of Summit GTX boots have seen some extreme duty since 2011 and still could probably handle one more field season. I have even worn them for every-day winter boots the past two years and they've held up so well. These are definitely the best boots I have had. Shopping for another pair for my upcoming summer field work. May 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 years daily use After 4 years of daily use all year around looking for new pair. They are a little expensive. If you break it over the 4 years it's not bad $50 per year. $50 boots won't hold up or be as comfortable. Hopefully new ones are of same quality. Any discounts for repeat customer loyalty? This is my second pair going on third. March 18, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Soles keep breaking I love the fit and comfort of these boots. I have had 3 pairs. I purchased one. The other 2 were warranties. The soles on all 3 pairs broke where the flex at the ball of the foot. One pair made it 16 months, the others less than a year. I will not bother getting this last pair replaced. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This shoe should be made for women AGAIN I have owned 6 or 7 pairs of this boot - in both the men's version and women's version depending on what was in production at any given time, for well over a decade. It has performed very well each time lasting between 2-3 years and i keep the older pairs around as spares in various locations - i wear it year round on a daily basis for work. My only great disappointment is that they have discontinued the women's version. Please bring it back. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Taken me around the world I purchased these boots back in 2011 (or a pair closely resembling), and I have been beyond happy with my purchase. These boots have taken me to very rugged terrain in Central and South America, for months of abuse in streams, thick mud and rocks; they are still going strong. Along side their durability, they are remarkably comfortable. While it takes a bit to wear them in, these feel like an extension to my body now. The only "problem" is that one of the metal eyelets have snapped off halfway down the boot. Not a problem at all, and understandable for what they've been through. I'd hate to see these boots go, but I'll be sure to buy a new pair from here when that happens. August 1, 2014
