About Vasque

During William Sweasy's travels through Europe in the late 60's Vasque sought to get ahead of the hiking craze taking over the mountains of Europe and apply an innovated take for the trekkers in the states. With such ambition came the Voyageur boot inspired by the spirit of those who mastered the Northern Minnesota wildernesses with one step at a time. As one of the first boots under the Vasque name, the Ascender boot began the 40 plus year success climb Vasque has ascended to. Today, Vasque continues the climb with a wealth of coveted awards for high-quality hiking boots and trail running footwear like the Vasque Snow Junkie, selected for an Editor's Choice Snow Award by Backpacker Magazine in 2012. With that, it is safe to say that Vasque's ascent towards innovation in high-quality footwear is nowhere near the peak. And there is much more history yet to be made.

Even so, the quality lineup Vasque offers from trail running shoes like that of the Mindbender to the Bitterroot GTX backpacking boot or even the Snowburban UltraDry insulated boot is sure to take those feet of yours to further than ever before with comfort and one of a kind fit found nowhere else. In doing just that, Vasque utilizes a variety of enhancement tech like the CuShin tongue technology or the Arc Tempo last that creates a tailored athletic fit that gives you an added bit of stability over difficult terrain. With that, the Vasque's Women's Velocity trail running shoe boasts Outside Magazine's 2003 Trail Running Shoe of the Year. And with such performance enhancements to durability, performance and comfort weighing in at 1lb. 50z. — you might have trouble keeping up with the limitless potential the Vasque Velocity trail running shoes provide.

Whether you are out for a brief stint in the woods, trekking through rocky riverbeds of Coyote Gulch in Utah, or bearing the brunt of winter in the rugged wildernesses of the Dakotas - Vasque has got you covered and specialized to take on any degree of environment and purpose you find your feet are taking you toward. With the Vasque Snowburban UltraDry Insulated Boot, your feet are unstoppable fortresses capable of withstanding constant dunks in freezing snow with Thinsulate Ultra insulation, Ultra Dry waterproofing and the Perpetuum Last fit for those epic ventures that take you beyond the horizon and then some. If you are after some lighter experiences out and about the day trails, the Vasque Pendulum trail running shoe is sure to give you the kind of agility your once tree-climbing childhood self had in strides with the Immerse 360 Last that takes a holistic approach to shaping comfortably to your feet. And if you would like the extra challenge of keeping up with the little ones out in the wild, the Vasque Breeze 2.0 kids boot is sure to do the trick.
