    Details

    Time-tested design gets an upgrade.

    The Vasque Sundowner first became famous over a decade ago, and Vasque is continuing the tradition with the new Sundowner GTX Backpacking Boot. This Gore-Tex lined boot is completely waterproof for the soggy conditions that are part of life on the trail, and features a waterproof, tough, and supple full-grain leather upper that protects your foot from water, mud, and rocks. Speaking of rocks, the Sundowner features a molded PU midsole and TPU midfoot stabilizer to cushion your feet on rough trails and provide reliability stability to save your ankles, while the classic lace-up design lets you find the perfect snug and supportive fit. Vasque finished the Sundowner with a Pyrenees outsole, which is modeled on the original Sundowner sole, for grip, stability, and reliable braking on steep and slick terrain.

    All Around Good Boot.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 13

    These boots not only look good but they also feel just as good as they look. I usually wear a size 12 in boots but this one felt a little to snug to keep. So after returnimg the size 12 to another store then realizing they didn't have a size 13 I came to backcountey asap! It's not snowing in New York yet, but by the looks of the grip on these soles I'll be more than ready. Traction is not a problem at all. These are so thoroughly insulated that you can expect warm feet all day with an adequate pair of socks. Plus they come with an extra pair of red laces to swap out in case you don't want to use the default burgundy laces. The bottom line? These are superb! Get yourself a pair!

    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.

    Unanswered Question

    This is not a question but a review this boot is made in Vietnam it is cut longer and narrower then just two years ago and it will require breaking it is much stiffer then it was just two years ago

    How is the redesigned model running size-wise? I have a pair of well fitting Italian-made Sundowners in US 12 Mens, but the Chinese made Sundowner I bought in '08ish had to be sized down to 11.

    These are built on the same last as the original so they should fit the same. The China version they went to for the past several years fits different. I have both original Italian Sundowners and new 2015 "re-boot" Sundowners. Fit is true to size for me. Buy the same size.

    No Vibram sole?

    Where are they made now?
