Time tested design meets new technology.

The Vasque Sundowner has gained a reputation as an excellent hiking boot for a variety of conditions. Vasque continues that tradition with the Sundowner GTX. This Gore-Tex lined boot is completely waterproof for the soggy conditions that so many of us hike in and retains all of the quality and comfort of an old school full leather boot. Do you wish the good old leather mid-weight boots would come back? Well, they never actually left.

Here's what others have to say...

No Vibram sole?


You're correct! They're using the Vasque Pyrenees outsole on this on.

Hey John,

The Sundowner GTX boots are made in China.

New Vasque Sundowner GTX

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Just got my New Vasque Sundowners GTX in the mail today!! They fit great! They come with two sets of laces (Red and Navy blue). I love the Hawthorne color and vintage look. I haven't worn them on the trail yet but that day isn't to far out. These look great sitting next to my other Sundowners that are over 15yrs old.

Thanks Vasque for another great boot!

Wow! They are using the original sole and dropped the padded collar! Very cool.

I bought my first Sundowners in 1993, and I owned a few pairs consecutively. But, once they outsourced production to China, I couldn't wear them anymore because the leather was so uncomfortable. I hope the "reboot" addresses this issue.

I'm with ya on that one! Things change and quality always seems to go waaay down the hill when our fave stuff ends up getting outsourced to China! My DH and I both had quality issues with the leather. It seemed stiffer and did not wear near as well!
