Taku GTX

Features: Waterproof

$179.99 USD MSRP

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.

It’s all about the balance. Moving gracefully over interesting terrain requires the dexterity and feel of a trail runner, with the stability and toughness of an alpine-worthy boot. Tough call. The Taku walks the line, with a leather upper and supportive ankle collar, but a Vibram® Neo Day Hiker sole to deliver the sensitivity of an approach shoe. Shave minutes off the up and relax on the down. Rest assured the GORE-TEX® liner will breathe in the summer and shrug off the rain, wind, and water the rest of the year. Perfectly balanced, whatever the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boots I've ever owned! Let's face it: finding the perfect boot isn't easy. For me, the search ended here! They are my go-to for hiking all year around. I also wear them around town when it is cold/wet. I absolutely love them. I have gotten all my boots at REI and these are by far the cream of the crop. I have an older version with red laces and accents and I was hoping to be able to purchase a new pair of the same kind. Any chance that style will reappear? Thanks for making the best boot, Vasque!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight, Good design and Dry The boot has all what i need for my walks in the rainforest. It's true size (10.5) buy it 10.5 2E (W) because the regular model is very narrow. 2E !! PERFECT !! . then tell them about their performance. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best hiking boots I've ever owned I tried about 20 different pairs of boots before I finally pulled the trigger on these. I was hesitant to spend the money, but they are worth every penny. I haven't had these boots very long, but I've already put them through their paces. A day hike at red rocks in ice and snow was beyond pleasant. I didn't lose traction once, the boots kept my feet dry, and my feet were incredibly warm thanks to thick wool socks. These boots also handled an 10 mile urban trek through Denver's grime. I only lost traction once on an iced over sheet of metal in the sidewalk while walking downhill. I wore them several days in Keystone and A-basin (before and after snowboarding) and my feet never got wet or cold -- even when walking through knee deep snow and ankle deep slush. Mobility is amazing in these boots without compromising stability. I would highly recommend trying these. They may not work for you, but they're the best hiking boots I've ever owned. I grabbed mine at REI, and would encourage you to do the same. Their return policy is peerless. Good luck finding boots. I hope this review helps. January 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good boot but did not last The boots fit well and are very comfortable. They need to be broken in before heading out on a long hike. My biggest complaint about these boots is that the soles on both boots started to come off withing 4 months of purchasing. Whenever I wore the boots while it was wet the soles would squeak for days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by New Boots Just received these boots. I am a size 11 with a regular shape foot, these need thick socks and have toe room. They will require some brake in. Good looking backpacking boot with good ankle support. On the lighter side and feel nimble. Vasque is a great company that stands behind their products. November 18, 2014
