Vasque Hiking Boots

Vasque's roots go back to 1965 when founder William D. Sweasy traveled to Europe where mountaineering was quickly gaining popularity. He set his focus on creating the toughest, best designed mountaineering and hiking boots available. Strong sole plates, durable traction and sleek designs are what you'll find from this hiking boot manufacturer.

As hikers and backpackers have moved to lighter weight hiking footwear Vasque also has kept the weight down on their hiking boots and introduced a line of durable trail running shoes. Check out some of our favorite Vasque shoes:
