Very possibly the world's most iconic backpacking boot. It’s no secret that people have an emotional connection with Sundowner. Multiple generations have grown up with the boot and consider the venerable model their own.Although launched in 1984, the Sundowner’s sleek, all-leather styling reaches back even further, harkening the classic European styles of the 60s and 70s. But from a technical standpoint, the Sundowner was looking forward from the start.For its first decade of existence, the boot was as fast and light as they came. Already known for its seamless waterproof design, the Sundowner upped the ante by also becoming one of the fi rst hiking boots in the world to feature Gore-Tex®. With its clean, classic lines and remarkable fit, the boot quickly came to represent the heart and soul of Vasque. To this day, the Sundowner GTX remains a topselling style.
