Vasque founder William Sweasy traveled to Europe in 1964 and witnessed a hiking craze sweeping the continent. He returned home determined to create purpose-built trail boots to mobilize Americans outdoors. In the decades that followed, Vasque steadily built a legacy of outdoor excellence, one pair of footwear at a time. Our legacy is stronger than ever today, and we’re ready for the adventure of the years to come.


These boots are made for walking. And hiking, and backpacking, and living. In nature – on short jaunts and long journeys. Built with different technology providing different features in mind, they all share one vision: yours.

People You
Can Believe In

Born out of Red Wing legacy, Vasque has family, tradition and excellence in our DNA while we keep our pulse on future product and service innovations.

Of Nature

Just as there is no one, single destination, there are many, many paths to a fulfilling life outdoors. We meet you where you are, and celebrate how we all live in nature.


The real Vasque story isn’t ours to tell. It’s yours.
