Summit GTX

Features: Waterproof | Widths

$219.99 USD MSRP

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.

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.

Premium, 2.6mm USA tanned waterproof leather upper is complemented with a supple garment leather collar and all metal, low friction lace eyelets with locking hook at the ankle. A nylon injected lasting board is tuned to be stiffer in the heel and midfoot for stability while allowing natural flex in the forefoot. Molded polyurethane comfort pods are recessed in at the heel and forefoot. GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane keeps the foot dry and comfortable.


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 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor quality I have had four pairs of Vasque hiking/backpacking boots. None of which have made it two years without something major going wrong with the boot. I've had the rubber crack through the entire sole, plastic toe cover peel completely off, and have had the boot completely fall apart after one year of hiking. The goretex on this boot will not last because of the poor quality of the construction. I would never recommend this or any of vasque's boots to anyone who hikes or mountaineers. June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable and comfortable I have had mine for 5 years now, and I have hiked many miles in them. They are the best walking boots I have ever had on my feet, and I have tried many brands and styles. I have taken them into the Grand Canyon twice, Mt. Mitchel, Linville Gorge, and many other places. They barely show the wear. They are not light or airy, but if you need tough boots for hard terrain, these are great. May 14, 2014
