    Making 'em like they used to.

    For style that's as timeless as the mountains themselves (well, almost), it's hard to beat the Vasque Men's Clarion '88 Hiking Boot. Based on a vintage Vasque model, this retro-inspired boot offers time-tested support and comfort for tough day treks through rugged terrain.

    Suede and abrasion-resistant mesh help the upper withstand the rigors of the trail while allowing good breathability, and the TPU heel stabilizer adds extra support. The high-rebound footbed offers a responsive feel that keeps you pushing onward to the summit, and a die-cut EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning and stability as you hike across rocky, uneven trails. Vasque rounded it out with a rugged Vibram outsole that ensures reliable traction and durability, so you can keep hiking with comfort and confidence for years to come.

    I love my Vasque Skywalk hikers. I had a pair of the Italian made ones 20+ years ago and was stoked when they reissued them. Though they are now made in China, I think the quality has held up well. The Skywalks are great, but when its really hot, the Gore-Tex liner is a little too much heat for my feet, and heat makes blisters right? The Clarion 88 has the great fit and ankle support, but the ventilation is so much better than I expected. They are also super light for what I would call a “standard” hiking boot. I also like the fact that these can be worn with jeans or chinos and not look totaly ridiculous. I’ve worn them for a few weekend hikes now and the comfort is great. I am using them with the Superfeet Blue insole and I know that these will be going with me to Southern Colorado and New Mexico for two weeks this summer!

    Legit Old School Style

    Spent the last couple days hiking in these right out of the box and I’m happy. These bring me back to the days when the first gen clarion were on the market. Not High tech, but light and well ventilated. I am pleasantly surprised and impressed with their performance.
