New boots
Breeze 2.0 GTX® Review:
Arrived in only 2 days, I wore them all day the next day to be sure they fit well. I've walked and hiked about 50 miles in them so far. I've gotten a couple blisters as my feet adjust to them but am pleased with their performance so far. They are great on rocks.
Good replacement for my worn-out Clarion GTX!
St. Elias GTX Review:
I'd been buying and wearing the Vasque Clarion GTX for decades, wore them for hiking all kinds of trails in cooler weather, wet conditions, during winter, and on backpacking trips. When my last pair wore out I was not sure what to purchase since the Clarions are no longer available. Took a chance on the St. Elias because they were similar in price, fit, and comfort. So far I've only worn them around the house, but with no complaints, other than the laces don't tighten-up as easily; but they feel a lot like the Clarion GTX and I have no doubt they will be just fine.

Talus UltraDry™ Review:
Best tactical soft boot I have ever owned. Now own 4 pair (2 high; 2 low cut). Use extensively in rugged terrain in mid-east where stationed as civilian security contract individual.
Mantra 2.0 GTX Review:
No break-in period, comfortable right out of the box.
Love them

Have more than one pair

About Vasque

Vasque boots are among the best-made hiking boots available. A division of the Red Wing Shoe Company, Vasque is headquartered in Red Wing, Minnesota. We've been selling Vasque boots and shoes at and at our shoe stores for years, and have many happy customers who tell us that Vasque boots are the greatest!

Vasque offers their advanced technical features in footwear for both men and women. They group their shoes and boots into these categories:

Heavy-duty boots for extremely cold weather conditions, featuring a Vibram Clusaz sole for maximum traction on a variety of surfaces. Most of these boots are crampon-compatible.

Justifiably famous for backpacking boots, Vasque's most popular line continues to be its Sundowner series. Vasque backpacking boots are designed to provide as much support as possible, even helping to absorb the weight of heavy pack loads on long treks. These boots come with Super Hiker soles for deep traction on inclines and ever-changing terrain.

Perfect for long-trek hikes or everyday wear, Vasque hiking boots are very well built, arguably the best boots available.

Day Hiking
Specifically designed to keep your feet comfortable on hikes that may be challenging but not extremely long. They are a little lighter, but still rugged enough to handle changing trail conditions.

Sport Boots
Vasque sport boots are built for spirited outdoor activities, specifically designed for scrambling, rock hopping, or bouldering, but we've also found they work well for everyday work and walking.

Adventure Travel
Adventure travel boots take many of the technical features from Vasque outdoors products and streamline them with stylish good looks. These are designed for travelers trekking throughout the world who need a high level of comfort without features required for the wilderness.
