    Details

    It might be Vasque's lightest, but don't underestimate its toughness.

    The Vasque Women's St. Elias GTX Backpacking Boot is an extremely lightweight boot that's built to keep you moving on the trail. Its oiled nubuck leather and a Gore-Tex membrane seal out moisture so your foot remains dry and comfortable for the entire trip. Dual-density EVA footbed boosts comfort even more and stabilizes your feet on uneven terrain. The all-new ASE midsole has EVA cushioning pods conform precisely to the irregularities of the trail, and its TPU shank offers the sturdy support backpackers crave after miles of rocky trails.

    Vasque's exclusive Vibram Frontier outsole is the delicious icing on this sweet shoe. The top has a toe-off pad that increases traction and durability. Concentrated lugs in the heel strike pad that gives you a solid landing every step of the way. Combo lugs with 90 degree edges at the forefoot deliver supreme traction when you walk uphill or downhill. The forefoot also has inset spikes that keep debris and mud from sticking to your sole. Vibram's XSTrek under your instep balances slip-resistance with high-abrasion resistance so you can step on wet stones confidently in this durable boot. The arch also has a 90-degree heel breast that offers secure downhill stopping power.

    Pretty darn good, but not perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    These boots are very good. I'm glad I bought them & know I'll get many years of use out of them. They fit very well, and I only get a little rubbing on the outside of my left pinky toe (which is normal. I just wear some moleskin on that patch).
    However, I live in dry California and tend to go trompsing out in the weeds. I find that the top of the boot's tongue becomes loose fairly quickly, no matter how tightly I tie the laces. When I got out in the weeds, the stickers will get stuck in the tongue and find their way down my foot to my sole... most uncomfortable. Not sure if the answer is to get different laces so I can tie the laces tighter (especially at the top around the tongue), or to stop off-roading. Either way, I enjoy these boots. They're a good value for the decent price.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I bought this pair as an upgrade to my Vasque Breezes that I'd hiked so long in they lost their soles and most of their waterproofness. So far, these boots haven't had that problem! They are almost as comfortable as the Breeze's but a heck of a lot more sturdy. I really appreciate the bumper on the toe for scrambling on loose rock. One of the reasons I ordered the boot was their classic look so they can be worn on the trail all summer long and in the city when it starts getting colder.

    One of my complaints about the boot would be the first two months I was hiking about 50 miles a week hiking in them and consistently came home with blisters on my pinky toes. They seemed to have a longer break in period than I am used to.

    That being said, I think this pair of boots have a long life ahead of them.

    These boots are light, roomy in the toe, and watertight. I love the classic brown, leather exterior. And the ankle support is great for my twist-prone ankles. They've taken me to the summit of two peaks so far and I can't wait to see where they'll take me next!
