Vasque Sundowner GTX
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
When you're in the middle of a week-long backpacking trip in the North Cascades and it starts to pour, you'll be glad you're wearing the Vasque Women's Sundowner GTX Backpacking Boots. Veteran hikers know this boot for its simple style and comfortable fit, but it's the Gore-Tex insert that really make these boots shine. A knit nylon liner shuttles moisture from your feet to the Gore-Tex membrane, which lets the moisture pass through while keeping water from rain or puddles out. A high cut and burly waterproof leather upper provides plenty of ankle support while you're shouldering a heavy pack. Vasque also gave the Sundowner GTX a dual density EVA midsole to cushion your feet over miles of wilderness terrain.
