User Review: Vasque Men's Sundowner Summit GTX
Materials: leather and gtx
Use: off-trail, heavy backpacking
Break-in Period: 2 weeks
Price Paid: $200
This is the best boot I've ever worn. The leather upper is very supportive, and I'm certain that it's saved me from quite a few bad sprains. The sole of the boot is well balanced and tends not to roll, as well. The GTX does what it's supposed to - keeping my feet dry even when I walk right through shallow streams or deep snow. Overall, the construction is burly enough to ward off damage from constant use on sharp talus and the soles still look new after a couple hundred miles of hiking. I love this boot!!!
