On tough day hikes or short backpacking trips, these all-nubuck Switchback hiking boots offer slightly more protection than the popular Vasque Breeze. Waterproof nubuck leather uppers provide protection, support and durability for rugged trail use. Breathable Gore-Tex(R) liners are seam sealed to stop water leakage and allow warm moisture vapor to escape. Three-bar knit nylon linings wick moisture away and dry quickly. Padded, contoured nylon collars wrap comfortably around your ankles for support and protection. Removable, dual-density EVA footbeds add cushioning to lightweight, compression-molded EVA midsoles. Compression-molded EVA midsoles deliver ample cushion for long, strenuous day hikes. Integrated Flexframe 1 thermoplastic urethane (TPU) midsole plates control flex, provide support and protect feet from uneven terrain. Durable, high-traction Vibram(R) Contact outsoles supply superb control on all types of surfaces.

Rainy forecast for the weekend? Who cares lace up the Vasque Men's Switchback Hiking Boot and get out there for an overnight trip. This leather backpacking boot's Gore-Tex insert will keep your feet bone dry. The Switchback GTX Waterproof Nubuck leather upper keeps moisture out, and the high cut provides the support necessary to prevent ankle rolls, even when you're laden with a weekend's worth of gear. Despite all this support, the Switchback weighs just less than three pounds a pair, light enough to take on strenuous, fast day hikes. Vasque gave the Switchback GTX a compression molded EVA midsole to absorb the impact of miles of hiking, and a TPU plate above the outsole to limit twisting and provide rigidity for carrying a heavy pack.
