Updated for 2014! The agile and durable Vasque Men’s Taku GTX is a mid-weight, waterproof hiking boot suitable for day hiking or multi-day backcountry trips on a variety of terrain from maintained trails to rugged and rocky surfaces.
A GORE-TEX lining delivers waterproof/breathable performance that readies the Men’s Taku GTX for shallow stream crossings and all day slogs in wet weather. NOTE: Strategically placed nylon does enhance breathability and comfort, but there is a break in period with the Taku due to its primarily leather construction.
Under foot a molded EVA midsole and supportive TPU plate protect the bottom of your foot from the impact of roots and rocks even under the weight of a pack. A dual-density EVA footbed aids in support and cushioning. The Vibram Deo Day Hiker outsole delivers reliable traction on a broad array of terrain and wet or dry surfaces.
The Vasque Men’s Taku GTX hiing boot is available in men's full and half sizes. To keep the leather on this boot in good shape and to prevent water absorption in the upper for the life of the boot you should apply a leather conditioner or wax paste (both sold separately) waterproofing treatment.
