Built for going big. While the trend may be towards ultralight backpacking, there's still a place for a heavy-duty boot like the Vasque Men's Summit GTX.? It's crafted using premium-grade leathers from one of the United States' last remaining tanneries. The Vasque exclusive Vibram® Summit sole has an asymmetric design for a natural stride, from heelstrike through toe-off. This incredibly gorgeous boot is the perfect blend of stability and style.
  • Summit last provides positive lock heel pocket, excellent arch support and rockered toe for less walking fatigue.
  • 2.8 mm full grain waterproof leather upper.
  • Gore-Tex® laminate waterproof/breathable insert.
  • Dual density EVA foot cradle with protective TPU skin.
  • PU heel cup with EVA shock pad.
  • TPU torsional control chassis.
  • Dual density PU midsole.
  • Vasque exclusive Vibram® Summit outsole delivers superior grip, traction and durability.
  • Avg. wt. 3 lbs. 14 oz.

    Comments about Vasque Summit Gore-tex Medium Weight Backpacking Boots - Men's:

    This is my second pair. Didn't take good care of my first pair, and they lasted 18 years of rugged use. Take a few minutes to clean them off after every hike and they should last a lifetime. This pair did feel wider, but it may just be that they are too new and stiff to tighten laces. I added a pair of insoles and they fit great now. Plus it adds more cushion.

      This is my third pair Vasque Summit boots. They last two years, every day use as a UPS driver. I recommed these to anyone that needs a long lasting boot, that supports the foot and won't wear out fast. The only reason I replace them is the sole wears out, the uppers are still in good shape.

        I am a UPS Driver and have wore two pairs of the Vasque Summit boots over the last four years. Each pair lasted two years. Amazing wear and comfort. Only reason for buying new ones is the sole wore out after two years of everyday use.

          Comments about Vasque Summit Gore-tex Medium Weight Backpacking Boots - Men's:

          I had a pair of Vasque Sundowners that lasted 15 years so when I updated I went with Vasque again, only this time I targeted the more expensive Summit boots.

          Perfect for backpacking, trail walking, day hiking or daily wear out and about the town. Having Gore-Tex means no worries with wet feet so walk through that puddle and not around it.

          They are a tad on the heavy side, but that speaks quality to me. A perfect fit and relatively easy on the break-in. I'm sure these will feel even more comfortable as they wear in.

          Sure they cost a bit, but I'm confident these will last 15 years like my previous Vasque boots.

              I use these boots for hiking and work. I own a landscaping company and abuse these boots daily and usually get two full seasons out of them which is great compared to any other boot I have worn to work. (usually struggle to get one season out of other boots) The durability is unmatched I lay pavers build walls and cut grass, these boots survive daily trips through wet grass, mud, and dust without breaking down the only reason I only get two years out of them is I wear the sole out. These boots are comfortable, warm and keep my feet dry.

                    Generally, pretty good. Stable boot for heavy-duty hiking/packpacking. I had a pair of Vasque Apex boots prior to these which lasted me some ten years. Not sure that I'll be able to match that again any time soon, but these boots also seem to be well made. The catch is that the Gore Tex does not breath well. I tend to find heavy leather boots have enough time passing moisture through them and do a sufficient job a repelling incoming moisture, that I would recommend a Gore-Tex boot of this style only to someone who intends to spend the majority of the days in them in very wet conditions. Otherwise get a high quality leather boot, treat it properly, and it'll be fine on the occasional rainy day (no wetter than a sweaty foot in a Gore-Tex heavy-duty boot) and will do much better on the vast majority of other days.

                        These boots run true to size. If you are wearing a very thick sock you may want to consider the size 13.

                        Vasque Men's Summit Gore-tex Medium Weight Backpacking Boots are not very similar to the Vasque Summit. From what I could find on Google the Irish Setter's are more of a higher hunting style boot the Vasque are not as high and have stiffer leather uppers.

                        Unfortunately they are no longer being manufactured in Italy and are now all made in China. It is rare, but you may still be able to find an odd classic Sundwoner that was made in Italy.
