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:
1. Vasque Velocity 2.0 Trail Running Shoes (For Men) - hiking-shoe armor and lightweight, breathable trail-runner performance. A plate combines ample stability with underfoot protection, and a Mako outsole features aggressive, self-cleaning lugs that dig into the trail for traction.
2. Vasque Breeze Gore-Tex® XCR® Hiking Boots - Waterproof (For Women) - Designed for fast-paced treks over rugged terrain, Vasque's Breeze hiking boots come trail-ready with a Gore-Tex® XCR® membrane for enhanced breathability.
3. Vasque Taku Gore-Tex® Hiking Boots - Waterproof (For Men) - these hiking boots feature a rugged, leather upper and a surprisingly nimble design. Along with waterproof breathable protection, it boasts a Vibram® Neo Day Hiker outsole for flexibility without sacrificing traction
4. Vasque Pendulum Trail Running Shoes (For Women) - the perfect balance of minimal weight and underfoot cushioning. The mesh upper minimizes hot spots, and a TPU plate protects feet from rocks and the impact of an occasional heel strike.
