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.

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 4 out of 5 by Great lightweight boots Almost perfect modern lightweight boots. Excellent design features like lightweight one-piece leather uppers, lightweight polyurethane midsole, excellent Vibram outsole, gusseted tongue. Some minor improvements would make this THE PERFECT BOOT: 1. zero-drop profile 2. no waterproof bootie (it's superfluous - why is there a Gore-Tex or a proprietary waterproof vapor barrier in ALL shoes today? I want my shoes to be as breathable as possible...yes, even a full-leather upper breathes better than a waterproof bootie built in to the boot) 3. slightly higher cuff to fully protect ankle from abrasion and keep debris out I've searched high and low and this boot comes the closest of anything I've seen to a modern lightweight boot that is comfortable for everything from wearing around town to day hiking to mellow backpacking. I would just ask Vasque to develop a zero-drop version to embrace the natural/minimal style, AND get rid of the waterproof bootie. Thanks for a great boot! April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Satisfied My friends all opted for the standard default option of buying Merrell boots for our new endeavor of backpacking a few years ago. I however, stumbled on these and have been elated with the construction and comfort. They have endured thousands of feet in elevation changes, creek crossings, snow, and slippery rock faces and have performed in all occasions to my satisfaction. In addition they have proven comfortable enough to wear around town and extremely warm when the temperature drops. After 2 years they are still keeping water out and providing great support. My next pair of boots will be Vasque! March 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Amazing comfort, but they did not hold up. This is the first pair of Vasque boots I've ever purchased. I can easily say they are the most comfortable pair of hiking boots I've ever owned. Sadly, the quality of the boots does not match the comfort. I use my boots on casual weekend hikes. The front toe of one of the boots has started to separate from the sole. My previous pair of merrell boots lasted me 5+ years. Considering I paid more for these boots, 6 months of use is very disappointing. The toe has not completely separated yet, but it makes it hard to trust the boots and I feel like this would compromise the waterproofness of the boot. Amazing comfort, but sadly the quality does not match the comfort. Not a great first impression, but maybe I just got a bad shoe? March 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome boot all the way around Big fan of the Vasque Talus. Worn them in hot conditions and cold conditions, rocky terrain, muddy terrain, and snowy terrain. Super comfortable, very well constructed, and they seem to eat up rocks and roots. Look and feel great, don't get banged up easy, and are a great value for the money. My only wishes were that were slightly lighter and had more non-slip. I think I'm asking too much but I wanted to provide some critique. Buy them! February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light hiker. Wow - I bought this boot 3 years ago and it has been a phenomenal performer from plus 40 Celsius semi-arid summer conditions to minus 35 Celsius Arctic winter conditions. I'm presently spending a work term in the Arctic and I can't believe these boots are as durable and easy wearing as they are. I trekked onto the tundra today and once again I had no problems relying on my Vasque boots. I also have to say they are very comfortable and the laces are high quality. I won't be swayed to purchase any other brand. February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Boots! I bought these in March of this year for a trip to Alaska. Shortly after purchasing them, I started wearing them to work and now I wear them everyday. This year I have hiked Alaska, Yellowstone, Alta, Moab, Cache National Forest (NE Utah), northern Idaho and NW Montana. I wipe them down when done and head to work the next day. They are great for walking my dog in the neighborhood on rainy nights. Best hiking boots I have owned, and I have owned a lot. Still look great after nine months of abuse. I have a narrow foot and I can wear normal socks with this boot. This is my first pair of Vasque, but I have worn narrow width Red Wing work boots since 1992. December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are super I use these all the time, the treads are solid all the way through, though. I love these boots they are super comfortable and durable. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by From russia with love ;) I bought a pair for daily wear in autumn and spring, but i found with a pair of good warm socks i can wear them all winter (of course it not the best choise to wear them in -40 °C, but for short city walking it would be acceptable ). They pass 2 year of salt, chemicals, mud, and cold. Very comfortable and good looking boots. November 8, 2015
