Pare down to go big. Some people prefer to save the weight, others excel with more mobility in the ankle. Whatever your tactic, the Mantra 2.0 GTX from Vasque invites you to take things further. Sure, it's a low-cut, but the Vibram Nuasi sole and molded polyurethane midsole reward you with the same stability and grip as a backpacking boot. The mobility of a runner, but the burliness of a boot-make it your mantra.

Low-cut but still supportive, the Vasque Women's Mantra 2. 0 GTX Hiking Shoe is designed to fit that niche between lightweight hiking shoe and burly backpacking boot. Fitted with a Gore-Tex membrane, the Mantra 2. 0 provides the waterproof, breathable performance you'd expect from a serious backcountry boot but also saves on weight thanks to a low-cut design. A durable Vibram sole with an aggressive tread pattern ensures traction when you're working up slick trails, and a TPU midfoot stabilizer allows you to carry your pack's heavy weight in comfort. The molded polyurethane and dual-density EVA midsoles cradle your feet when covering miles of rocky terrain, and the boot's durable nubuck leather upper with mesh paneling will hold up to serious backcountry travel while still allowing for breathability.
