The original mountain boots relied on durable leather and minimal stitching for toughness and weatherproofing. They also weighed six pounds. We take the common-sense tradition of a leather boot and build into it modern, lightweight technology to let you fly in the mountains. Set your sights on a summit, but every so often check out your feet. They’ll look classic, but you won’t believe how they climb and feel. Retro appeal and performance that coaxes more from you and your adventure.

UPPER

The upper is primarily 1.8mm waterproof nubuck leather, rounded out with abrasion resistant mesh in the collar. A one-piece toe and quarter increases durability and creates a sleek profile. A simple, effective speed lacing closure secures an excellent fit. Vasque’s proprietary UltraDry™ membrane is a waterproof barrier against the elements.

SOLE

Vibram®’s Nuasi sole uses XSTrek compound and angular, multi-directional lugs for excellent trail traction. A rubber sidewall wrap in the toe increases stability and protection on rocky trails. A lightweight polyurethane midsole delivers backpacking boot level stability while maintaining good forefoot flex for faster pace hiking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Did not hold up I've owned 2 pair of Sundowners in the past 25 years. Wore them both for multiple years on many 2-3 day over nighters. They were awesome. Purchased a pair of Talus for light weight and hoped for same stability. Not so. Went up to the High Peaks in Lake Placid and the boots just did not hold up. After two days now separating at the front toe rubber seams. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THESE BOOTS the day after i bought these boots i wore them on a fifteen mile hike. yes i know, probably a bad idea. i had already accepted the fact that i would get blisters. but after FIFTEEN miles i didn't even have a single hot spot! and since then i have still never gotten blisters from these boots. and let me just say i have the most sensitive feet ever. these boots feel like heaven and keep my feet perfectly dry in any level of snow. absolutely LOVE them and would reccommend them to anyone and everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit and comfortable, but I've banged up the toes I bought these after my previous pair of Vasques, the Vista Ultradry boots, got manky and beaten-up from caving. The Perpetuum last is perfect for my low volume feet that are narrow at the heel and wide in the forefoot (I tried on the Vasque Breeze boots, but they pinched my toes). This pair is a joy to hike in - something about the rocker of the sole makes my strides long and easy. The only complaint that I have is that the toes have gotten really scuffed up, and I can't polish this leather. They are nicely waterproof too, and stood up well from everything from my job as a guide in California to tromping through slush while visiting my sister in Delaware. April 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feel so good! Got these at my local REI and their team is the best. The perpetuum last is the best for my feet/back. These are the best, most comfortable boots I have worn in a while! February 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lacking cushion Overall fit and performance is good, but it is not very comfortable to wear. A better insole would help. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost bought these at REI These boots are perfect, except for that streak of grey in the sole, which ruins the otherwise beautiful look. Wanted to buy them, but didn't because of that. Colors should be consistent throughout, not clashing. Let me know when you get rid of that design mistake. They fit perfect, and felt perfect, but....I couldn't stomach that horrible grey blotch in the sole. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go-to footwear I bought these in the 15 minutes before REI closed on the night before I left for a month-long trip to the UK. My feet are hard to fit (long, narrow, with some peculiarities as well). A great REI staffer helped me find two pairs of boots that would work and felt comfortable right off the bat. I chose these and have now been wearing them for almost two years. They are the footwear I *always* take with me when I travel--I wear them on the plane (yes, they go through TSA PreCheck without setting off alarms) and take a lighter pair of shoes for backup/variety. But with these I know that I can walk as far and as long as I'll want to, whether I'm in a mucky field or on city streets. January 20, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Quality This is a good boot. You're gonna get your money out of this boot and more. I recommend them. November 15, 2014
