It’s the boot to get you started and it’s the boot that takes you as far as you want to go. The new Sundowner GTX goes back to the future with a design that combines its original Italian-inspired look with the best of today’s performance. The seamless, 2.4-mm Red Wing leather upper (tanned in the US) wears for years, conditions like a dream, and sheds water reliably. A GORE-TEX® insert, the Vasque Pyrenees classic sole (styled on the original), and an impeccable tradition in the mountains—the Sundowner GTX is the classic mountain boot.

UPPER

One piece, USA-tanned, 2.4 mm leather upper is the ultimate in durability and comfort. Less seams equal fewer hotspots and the longer you wear them, the more custom the fit becomes. A Gore-Tex® membrane protects from inclement conditions, and classic d-ring eyelets are tried and true and offer speed lacing. New for 2015, the Sundowner will be built around the original shaped last, for the classic fit so many have trusted on the trail.

SOLE

Once again, the Sundowner is offered in the original rubber traction sole with polyurethane midsole. This combination is a perfect blend of trail support and comfort for long miles. Vasque’s proprietary Pyrenees rubber sole takes direct design cues from the original, with aggressive lug pattern, excellent mud clearing and rockered heel for a natural foot transition on trails. The single density polyurethane midsole is coupled with a PU comfort footbed for excellent torsional structure for rough trails while offering great underfoot comfort for long days out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DISSAPOINTED The first pair I purchased 13 years ago were fantastic, however the recently purchased pair are horrible.. Not sure if I got a bad batch if that's even possible but im disappointed.... October 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THANK YOU VASQUE! I have been wearing Vasque boots since I mowed grass all summer long to buy a pair of Montanas back in 1983. My last pair of Sundowners was bought about 4 years ago and my first experience with the Chinese boot. I was very saddly dissapointed with the fit and feel of them. I didn't wear them long enough to have any damages as they just weren't comfortable. I then got a pair of Clarion GTX's They were completely differen't from the Clarions I had in the 90's but have nontheless been a good and comforable boot. When I found out about the "Re-Boot" of the Sundowner I IMEDIATELY bought a pair. After 2 and a half weeks of everyday wear the are breaking in nicely! AAAAAHHHH!!! My old friends are back! Although they are constructed in Vietnam, the leather is good ole' American Red Wing, and it shows! Thank you so much Vasque! Now is there any chance you will bring back the Skywalks? As I live in the Deep South a fabric and leather boot is better in the Summer time, but at anyrate I am THRILLED with the new Sundowners! September 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 16 years of a great boot! I bought Sundowners in 1999 to go on Outward Bound hike. Still love them although its time to upgrade to a new pair. Love Vasque products. September 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW... are they awesome My son's friend left at our house in Miami around Hurricane Andrew. He died in a tragic accident. We moved north in 1996 to Martin County. After the move I found these new looking Vasque Skywalk 7530 Gore-Tex Made in Italy... perfect fit 9 1/2 Wide (?). Sprayed them with boot deodorant and starting wearing them! Been doing outdoor yard chores, construction, etc. for two decades wearing these fantastic boots... fit like a glove, best ankle support/protection ever. I had to reglue soles using Liquid Plumber glue. I rub a little mink oil on them every couple weeks. NOW, the soles are nearly smooth on the toes... and lining is starting to fray a little... so, I went on line and found worn out models are asking $100 on E-bay. Hopefully the new Sundowner will be available soon!! September 12, 2015
