Built to haul heavy lauds and tackle tough terrain, the Vasque Eriksson GTX hiking boot offers maximum stability and support as well as waterproof protection. Full-grain leather construction maximizes durability and the Vibram Summit outsole delivers great traction.
A full GORE-TEX bootie delivers waterproof/breathable performance that readies the Men’s Eriksson GTX for stream crossings and all day slogs in wet weather. An all metal lacing system at the ankle allows for quick lacing and fit adjustments while delivering an athletic, supportive feel. NOTE: There is a break in period with this boot due to the supportive, full leather construction.
Under foot you'll find a molded TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) shank and a midsole with EVA cushioning protects the bottom of your foot from the impact of roots and rocks even under the weight of a heavy backpack. A dual-density EVA footbed cushions your foot to help keep you comfortable on high-mileage days. The outsole of the boot is a Vasque exclusive called Vibram Summit which features aggressive lugs that deliver both uphill and downhill traction while shedding debris.
The Vasque Men’s Eriksson GTX backpacking boot is available in medium and wide widths 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

Real Customer Reviews
Likes: I really like this boot. Out of the box they fit well. I have a really wide foot that makes it hard to find boots that fit comfortably. Wides in most other brands don't come close to fitting my foot, but these are perfect. I also was surprised when I opened the box and there was a second pair of grey laces. I wasn't a big fan of the yellow and was planning on switching them out when I got them.
